I didn't look around a whole lot this time. eBay for $89 shipped. I think I got the last one.

Then I went over to Metaltech and bought a pair of 3" bump stop spacers for $94 shipped. I even have some 1.5" square tubing here at home that could work.

I have no regrets.

Yes sir. Maybe 1/8" pad remaining, almost past the groove in the pad. Either my new Wilwoods are squeaking a bunch, or its the rear squeal indicators are touching. Hoping its the rear.

hmm, ok, are you a hard / late braker ?...25 doesn't seem like a lot of wear....
Always thought the TRDs being a harder compound would last longer...

I'm definitely not hard on them. I use the transmission occasionally and let off the gas the block before the red light while cars are passing me.

Actually kinda makes sense that they might last longer if I never heat them up that much, but my OEM's lasted much longer.

Thats what I thought .... I got almost 100k miles out of my original OE pads... and I am easy on my brakes too...
Odd that are almost done at 25...
