hi, try ebc yellow pad's.
worth every penny.
but if you are ok with oem,
they can be bought usually the same day at the dealer,
they usually have them in stock.
there is no name except for toyota & there part #'s on the box.
from what i was told by the dealer was the calipers were made by brembo(2005).
As was mentioned they are Toyota pads. Call the dealer and give them your
info and get the part number and price from them. Then go online and search
for them, where you'll most likely be able to get them cheaper.
hi, if you have the money, buy the EBC rotors & yellow pads.
belive puffnstuff & i, it's a night & day difference.
i truely belive it's mostly the pads.
BUT! they are double the price as oem.
BUT they will make you STOP, like you never ever did before.
& for that, to me there 1 of a safty part that is worth more than gold.
how many times have we had to stop short? if it saves you 1 accident, there worth it.
your auto ins. deductable is usually 500 on average.
so for 60 extra bucks per 2 or 3 years is about 20 per year.
what are you really saving if you had 1 accident.
just something to think about.
many of us have tried almost every kind of up-grade.
we know what works & what is snake oil.
still we continue to try new stuff.
it only helps other's.
good luck in your decision,
Solid discs retain spent brake material between the pad and the rotor which is why I went with slotted so it is evacuated. EBC has fantastic quality parts and the grip is so good that I upgraded my wheels and tires to make proper use of it.
I've never had an issue with 'spent material'. I doubt that the millions of vehicles on the road suffer so badly from 'spent material'. So much over-hyped internet BS to push something no one needs. Lobotomize your brakes rotors and your frontal lobes
Slotted/drilled rotors, IMO and experience, are ricer mods and do NOTHING to improve braking.
Quality pads are the best improvement you can make. Quality pads, IMO, are a must.
Solid rotors, in my own testings, always stopped shorter than drilled or slotted with same pads for testing. Pads lasted longer with solid rotors. Brake pedal feel was better with solid rotors. And noise was less.
Well I base my comments on my own personal experience and when I found all of that spent material hanging onto the pad face I moved to slotted rotors which do evacuate that material away from the pad facing allowing for maximum friction. Likewise moving to ss lined brake lines also firmed up pedal feel. I also live in a state where it rains frequently so slotted rotors also help drain water away from the rotor face. If you live in a dry place your needs will be different than mine. I will never go back to stock rotors and pads. I'm even considering having my rear drums slotted to expel spent material as the sealed drums just hold it in coating the drum lining and reducing contact friction. Everytime I remove the rear drums the dust is present which reduces braking. As for noise there was no change in noise for me after moving to slotted rotors. Gorilla and I have the same front setup and we both know that the ebc combination is first rate in quality and performance.
hi, people are people, & they will always try to de-face anything they could.
like you i wouldn't go back to several thing's:
1-oem front sway bar
2-oem front rotor's
etc... the list is endless
all these i say are no doubt to me serious up-grades
which makes my tundra a safer, custom madness, & fun to drive tundra.
that has awesome audio, exhaust sound, power HP & Torque & no road limitor, and awesome handling.
i'm seriously considering a new vehicle. since this 1 is almost done.
my red/black crocidile & black seude & embrodded headrests(CUSTOM MADNESS) are the only thing left to do.
that is why i've been holding off on it. because once it's done, i get tired of it all, i'll get a itch & buy a new project.
