    I still need to source some GX460/4Runner rotors. I've got the pads. I was going to get OEM rotors but shipping was going to be $50. :eek:

    I wonder if any of the local shops like Advance sell decent rotors of if they are all crap.

    I've honestly never had an issue with rotors even using the cheapest ones I could find. No vibrations on any since I started using a torque wrench on lug nuts 20 years ago.

    Napa rotors are good. I personally run EBC rotors

    Listen, I'll go out to LP1 (break area) and sit down. I watch these people go out to their cars on break, and move their car ONE spot closer to the time clock.

    It makes no sense. You're walking twice as far to get to your car, now you're burning unnecessary petrol to move you car from one spot to another, and then walking back.

    I've seen these fellas go out, and start their car just to pull forward into the "front" of the double row of parking spaces from the "rear."

    Its a constant shuffle out here like they are playing duck, duck, goose.

    The oarking jobs are all shitty because of this. Its why I park away from everyone, and just walk a little farther.

    Its so weird to see that model of car in pristine condition right? There is a maroon one at my office. First time I saw it I walked around it carefully checking over the details. It is seriously showroom grade, either it came through a time portal from 1986 or some nutjob restored it.

    I still am afraid of those automatic seatbelts.

    I had a pretty bad experience with those pads. They stopped well but squealed like mad, it was like nails on a chalk board and nothing I tried would remedy it.

    I'm running Hawl LTS now but not very impressed, almost on par with the RBC yellows but no noises. Next time around I'm going Akebono.

    I don't miss those days, 12 years seniority has its perks.

    I will always be on the bottom of the totem pole. New hires are above me in seniority because I'm on 3rds.

    F that. I was on late shift for years as a service plumber and I cleaned house on seniors who had first shift. Best part was back then I was an insomniac and volunteered to be on call thrice a week from 10pm to 7am after my 1-10pm shift ended.

    That sucks. I'm a Teamster and shift doesn't matter only the lengtht of time in your work unit.

    Worked 3rd for 5 years before I got 1st. I did ok for the first 3 then couldn't sleep more than 4 hours a day.

    I’ve told you guys about that friend who is a Flat Earther. Well anyways when ever I bring up the topic, for comedic discussion, this other friend of mine (unrelated) thinks I am trying to convince him the earth is flat. :rofl:
