    Well its time, after 140,000 the rotors on my 05 are done. I replaced pads at 80,000 so makes sense to do it all. Any sugestions on upgrades? Thinkin on doing the shocks at the same time and maybe a lift kit of some sort...any thoughts?

    No Truck..well, maybe
    Grey wire MOD, deck plate, diff breather MOD, 2nd gen. OME 883# on Tundra 5100's, OMD custom 3" leafsprings, rear shock relocation, Ivan Stewart TRD rims w/285/75/16's, '02 bumper MOD, Famous Fabrications sliders , LED interior/exterior lights, bed bar, Custom tube bumper, Old school KC day lighters,Red Ring 8" HID flood, Kenwood vhf 2M.. umm some other shit I'm forgetting right now
    I think they make some high end composite porcelan brake pads & if ya got the money to do it, do it all in one shot , do alot of research yourself on lift kits & the characteristics that each manufacturers all have , then ask around & get feedback from people in here that have made all the mods you speak of & take the information you've already researched,combine that with the feedback recieved in here & you'll have no problem getting your truck tricked-out within a decent budget.....:cool:

    Call Edwin at RaceShopper.com. Get set up with SP Performance slotted rotors and Hawk pads. The prices are unbeatable and you'll love the improved braking performance.

    Anyone running SS lines? While I have it apart I was thinking on replacing the stockers. Is it worth it?

    Also looking for pads and rotors, there is alot of info and after market options out there, what is everybody upgrading to?

    Yes, but I'm also running a lot of other weird stuff that makes my truck a poor reference for comparison.

    Others are running braided SS lines on their trucks with excellent results. New pads, rotors, lines, properly bleed the whole system, adjust your rear drum brakes (probably time to replace those rear brake shoes too), and you'll be pleased with the results.

    You should be fine with stock replacement shoes for the rear. Aside from the random times the parking brake might stick in wet weather they work well.

    Got my SP Performance rotors and hawk pads installed today...what a difference! smooth firm fast stops..

    Edwin at Raceshopper.com was great to deal with, fast friendly service and an exceptional value.

    Thanks for the tip mpj2!

    Next up a set of 5100's
