    any suggestions????
    the front brakes are finally starting to squeeeeek a bit need to replace my brake pads.
    does anyone have suggestions on a better quality brake pad or are the all pretty much the same??

    i replaced discs and pads on my audi by myself once before, is it a simple job on tacomas also?

    Lot of brake threads coming up in the past 15 minutes.

    Call Edwin at RaceShopper.com and order a set of Hawk pads. If you're feeling strong, get some SP Performance slotted rotors while you're at it.
