    Nah I don’t even know where those are. We’re gonna try and camp a bit before we go so maybe that’d be a good place to check out

    Haha good point!

    On an unrelated note....my wife and I were just on Kauai about two weeks ago. What a beautiful island. Didn't mind the toyota scenery too much either! :cool:

    Someone asked me why I got rid of my 2015 TRD PRO Inferno......well, look at the Carfax and tell me how many times I did the brakes in the 18 months that I owned it......6 times!!….truth be told, I tried everything(!) to get the brakes to not shimmy and it always did......after the 6th time I was done!.....oh well, it's certified now so hopefully the dealer did something magical to solve the problem.

    Did you go back to stock parts.....it was probably due to those rotors and TRD pads

    :confused: did you do anything else like balance or rotate or even road force-balance your tires..?

    My car eats brakes like nothing else, but havent had a single issue on the truck in the 2 years Ive owned it

    Cooled seats = heaven. Amazing. Also, supercharged.
    Wow, no wonder you were sick of it! I've got 30k miles and not a single issue with my brakes so far.

    Also.....and here is ultimately the possible issue.......I looked into this setup before I bought my BBK Wilwood setup. Those TRD pads must be broken in appropriately with a few hard stops from set speeds that are on the directions. I completely forgot about this otherwise I woulda mentioned this before.

    Yeah most 'performance' brakes have a pretty rigorous break-in process

    That could definitely be the issue as to the premature life of the pads and the vibrations

    yep, rotated them but I made sure the tires guys reinstalled the tires using a torque wrench only and no air gun as not to have the tires unevenly installed......but of course it didn't help...

    yep, you're right.....but they were the first set...….it was too much of a pain to bed them in properly so after those I tried stoptech slotted cryo treated rotors and regular oem pads…...lasted again for a few thousand miles and then the shimmy came back...
