At 59,100 miles I was finally due for brakes. I went with EBC Green Stuff pads and plan on going with the rotors in the future. For now it was enough to have my rotors turned.

I bought them here. Fjcruiser Brake Pads - AutoPartsWarehouse.com

I went with the 7000 series in the front and 6000 series in the rear.

So far I have driven a whole 1 mile on them so I have no report as of yet, but I am anticipating good things. :)

Let us know how they work for you!

I just had the rotors changed by the dealer at 30k because of the recall. It's nice to get new rotors free!

I know my pads will be toast after Moab and the Summit!

No, I don't ride the brake... Much!

cheers,

dale

Why is the part number different for the TRD FJ? Do TRDs have different rotors?

Thanks for the link Dale.

I don't think this fits my problem. I just started to get a squeak from the rear brake all the time. And I only have 34,000 miles. Oh well... lol
Only 34,000 miles ? You may be due for new rear brakes. Most Toyota SUVs are notorious for going through brakes quickly, and while better then their predecessors, it;s a good idea to keep a close watch on 'em.

I was the test vehicle for the EBC pads and rotors when the FJC was released, and I've been using them ever since. Hard braking is improved, there's no dust build-up, and they don't fade as fast on the trail. :rocker:

What did you do about the rotors?
Had them turned at the local Firestone Dealer (who is real close to the house.) Call around to see who does and their price.

If want supervision, :rofl: bwaaa haaa haa,, let me know.

Really, if would like some company when you do it, you know how to contact me.:)

Not sure what you mean? I click the link and it goes through "clickserve" and then drops me off at the AutoPartsWarehouse, but not at the correct spot for FJCs. Maybe they changed the part number or something.
