    As all of you I'm sure, I hate brake dust. Bad for wheels and paint. I run Akebono pads on our other vehicles and am very satisfied with them, but they are not trucks. Just looking for what any of you guys have used and if you have any brake dust issues with them. I also have to replace the front sway bar links, both sides. Seems to be a wide range of prices out there. I imagine cheap is cheap there too? Was thinking of just ordering through Napa. They have 2 levels available. The better is $75 each but has a neoprene bushing and a grease fitting on the knuckle end.

    Honestly I just use the OEM pads as they have worked well without issue on my Previous tacoma and my tundra. Not much noticeable brake dust.

    I recently replaced OEM 's(which were quite good) with some Pep Boys pro stop ceramics. I think 60 bucks a pair. So far, so good. Not much dust if any. I would go with the greasable links especially if exposed to snow, water and mud a lot. Mostly just my preference. Probably not a big deal going either way on the sway bar links.
