    Pretty sure you have to part it together yourself. Lots of info on here so it should be easy to find part numbers

    There’s lots of kits. PowerStop makes a popular one, I have their system on my truck. I just upgraded to Baer Sport Rotors and LC Engineerinf SS Brake Lines.

    a dropped one and a rusty 4wd one.
    I have powerstop on my 5 lug, tolerances where a little odd with the calipers but works flawlessly. Gonna go with them when I convert my 4wd to tundra brakes

    I’m pretty sure they used original reman calipers, but I could be wrong.

    Depending on your rim size these may or may not accommodate, but I used this kit from RockAuto on my 2001 Tacoma. Tundra Brakes. I also purchased the from Wheelers Off-Road. Everything bolts up with NO modification to the lines, bolts, wheels, calipers, or dust plate.

    My Tacoma had the larger typical five star rims on the TRD package. These Tundra calipers fit without issue. I got the smaller of the two Tundra calipers just to make sure I wouldn't have any clearance issues. The difference between the two Tundra caliper sizes I don't personally think would be noticeable on our trucks. Not starting any debates, just my opinion. However the difference between the Tacoma and Tundra brakes is huge!

    -Grab some reman, unloaded S13WL calipers (2005 Tundra is the vehicle) from a local parts store.
    -OEM rotors: 43512-0C011
    -OEM pads, non-chamfered, no shims: 04465-AZ100
    -OEM shims: 04945-35120
    -Get the Wheeler's Offroad stainless brake lines. The banjo bolts on the end of them is compatible.
    -Don't forget some new crush washers to sandwich the banjo bolts too!
    -Usual fluids/solvents/pastes for brake jobs.

    Now go bed the pads onto the rotors and enjoy the extra stopping power.
