    Looking for front break pads for my 03 2wd prerunner. Was on rockauto but they have tons of brands to choose any suggestions on this? Anyone have good experience with some AM brands can’t do steelership at this moment .

    thanks in advance

    Yea I don't think they can be beat for the price. I'm on my 2nd set, both have been fantastic, and I'm not easy on them. Also I only use Brembo blank rotors, they're better than the OEMs imo. https://www.ebay.com/itm/351304618734?fits=Year%3A2003%7CModel%3ATacoma

    I'm using the brembo pads and they are pretty damn good. They are super quiet but have really good bite. The only thing is that they dust up but that just means that they are working.
