    Well at 32k I my brakes were done. [​IMG]
    Unfortunately with many trip I had to reserve to this until I can order better pads. So Autozone Ceramic Quite Stop pads were installed.
    It may seem like the similar way to the rest of Tundra years: 2007-current, but it may be useful to others.

    Parts and tools used: 2 jacks, jack stand, torque wrench, big flat head screwdriver, flashlight (got dark too quick), C-clamp, brake cleaner, brake grease and of course new brake pads.

    Took about 30 mins to complete the job, but may comeback in the future to repaint the rotors, calipers - clean look [​IMG]

    Summary in pictures. ( by any means I am not mechanic, this evening I was limited on the tools I had with me and space to work with)

    I put on the same pads. They appear to be holding up pretty well. Not a lot of brake dust too. My rotors were both slightly warped, so they got replaced at the same time.

    How the hell did your factory tires outlast your brake pads? Do you drive with two feet?

    That's what I thought too but then again you know I'm driving tons of stop and go traffic. When I had a dealer inspect the truck there are two other trucks with 16 and 20 thousand on the clock with the exact same issue

    Wow. 32k is way too early to need new pads. Do you tow a lot? In any case, I've had really good results from Power Stop products. Haven't tried the AutoZone pads you mentioned. Let us know how it goes.
