    I have a 2005 tacoma acess cab sr5 4x4 with almost 106,000 miles and the original brake pads. Changing out the pads doesn't look too bad, but with that many miles should I replace rotors too?:confused: If so, are they hard to replace?

    Depends on what condition they're in. If they're warped or have already been 'turned' many times already - then you probably should replace them.

    However - if they're not warped and original (never turned) ...you don't have to replace them.

    Take them off and take them to a shop and have them 'turned'. Basically, they'll shave a very small amount of metal off and make them smooth again. Having them turned before putting new pads on, is always a good idea.

    Very easy to take the rotors off.... should remove easily after you take the calipers off.
