Got your fish scale? Lot's of blue paper towels. 54mm hub socket? breaker bar? 100pack of gloves? Milk crate to sit on?

Yeah, I'm pretty sure I've got everything I need. :wrench: It's not too difficult. This will be the second time I've replaced them.

:wrench:
Out with the old, and in with the new.
New rotors, new brake pads, and rotated tires.

Maybe now I won't have to experience a vibration akin to the death wobble when I hit my brakes....:dunno:

C'mon guy. This is Tacoma easy. Not LC overly difficult. No fish scales here. Or hub sockets ;)

Good work. I loved my drilled/slotted on my runner. I will probably do Front Range Offroad's Tacoma conversion on my old 88 truck.

I saw that picture and thought. "Holly $H!! that's way too easy, what kind of truck is that?"

Yeah, it's fairly simple to change the rotors on the 'ol '03 Taco.
Take off the wheel, take out the pads, take off the caliper and suspend it from the upper control arm, slip off the old rotor and slip on the new one, then replace everything. Takes about 15 minutes a piece. :thumb:

Tundra caliper upgrade?

No, I'm not aware of a tundra caliper upgrade for this truck. There may be one. But it's not something I will probably ever do. lol

Yes it does. I got them broke in around Idaho springs, and then driving 103 up to Mt. Evans and down to Evergreen.

yah takes more time to get the tools out than complete the job. Kind of ruins the whole experience :lmao:

Where did you get those rotors?

Mine's is warped, and I needs some new uns.

If you can hit 103 up to Mt Evans you should give up 4 wheeling and take up NASCAR. Just kidding...
