    If you're asking for pointers regarding the install, its a simple swap of parts (pads and rotors).
    Just remember to crack the bleeder when you collapse the front calipers.
    This prevents nasty brake fluid from being pushed into the master cylinder reservoir.

    If you're asking about what brand to buy, do a quick search. lots of threads about brake upgrades.

    EBC makes good stuff! I haven't done the Tundra's yet but installed the EBC's on my Tacoma and they have been great.

    I went with the power stop cross drilled and slotted rotars. They stop smother but they don’t feel like they stop as firm as the stock pads. I’m going to replace my pads and resurface and see if that makes a difference.

    Which pads was it you ended up going with can't remember if you bought the extreme pads or the other ones? I used the extreme pads from the z36 kit and mine feels great.

    I believe mine was just the basic pads. I bought higher performance pads but I haven’t gotten around to installing them yet.
