    brake pads have warning indicators on them that make a squeaking sound when they are in need of replacement.

    check at your toyota dealership. that's where I get my brakes done at. have them check your rotors pads and shoes just to make sure there isn't something else wrong causing the squeaking

    I see that you live in Fairhope. You can get the pads and rotors from O'Reilly's and do it yourself if you are mechanically inclined.

    If not the Toyota dealership on the beltline in Mobile has always answered my questions a lot better than Eastern Shore Toyota or Palmer's Toyota.

    Before you buy anything do a search on this website. Some of the guys have discussed different pads and rotors that give better braking power.

    I think pads would be under $50 if you look around online a bit. Consider getting your rotors turned if your doing it. It will help the pads wear nice. O'Riellys can do it for like $25 a piece.
