    Well with 55K on my Taco, its about time for new front brakes. What I am looking for is some reccomendations regarding what to replace the OEM brakes with. I dont want to do a big brake swap, Im looking more into installing PowerStop cross-drilled/slotted rotors and EBC Greenstuff 7000 series pads. Any input or reccomendations would be appreciated. Also I ordered 2 G2 caliper brake paint kits for the front calipers and the rear drums. Hopefully it should match the body color well. Thanks for your time...

    Everyone keeps telling me to get some Hawk brake pads and SS brake lines for a replacement upgrade... I figure with everyone telling us, there may be some truth to it.

    SS brake lines will give you a firmer pedal as rubber expands you loose some pedal...soo the SS will not expand like the rubber will...I agree with SS lines and have heard positive things about Hawk Pads
