Brake dilemma

Having brake judder on my 2012. Have about 48k miles.

My dealer got approval from Toyota to replace my backing plates to the new design using my 7yr / 125k platinum warranty.

Here's the dilemma:

The rotors will be turned.

The pads are at 6/32 so good.

The dealer is willing to replace rotors and pads at no cost for me if I want to supply new ones to them, since they will be tearing things apart anyway. I was thinking Cryo treated BrakeTech slotted and Hawk LTS.

So, do I let them turn and keep decent life left pads, or do I spend the bucks and go with the combo I mentioned above?

I tow a 7000 lb toyhauler on a regular basis and the stock pads and rotors are more than up to the task. The front and rear brakes on my truck were replaced with Toyota pads and the rotors were resurfaced when I bought the truck with 54,000 miles. I now have 86,000 miles on the truck and the pads have approx 50% remaining and I have no vibrations or noises while braking...IMO the stock setup really can't be beat. What do you think you are going to gain by going with slotted rotors and hawk pads?

I'm not judging...I'm just sayin

I just had the backing plate replaced on my 11' Crew Max as well. Took away a lot of vibes that showed up seemingly overnight. Another exceptional brake pad to consider is the "adaptive one" pads from NAPA. They are designed with towing in mind, but are fantastic outside of towing as well. Otherwise, I have had great success with Hawk pads in the past on another vehicle & as mentioned above, the stock pads obviously get the job done quite well.

Linky to NAPA adaptive one pad info.

I did a complete brake job last year, went with cryo treated rotors, replaced all the brake lines with steel braided lines, and went with Hawk LTS pads originally. The LTS pads ended up causing some binding and overheating the rotors. Went to a brake shop and they suggested using posi-quiet pads. Swapped to the posi-quiet pads and have had no issues ever since.

Depending on your driving style and conditions there are a lot of different ways you can go. The Posi-Quiet pads are a great pad for many vehicles and applications. It is a slight upgrade from stock from a performance standpoint and (as its name implies) is quiet.

For those looking for a more aggressive pad for heavy braking or towing, the Hawk LTS pads are a great options. If you are one to ride the brakes, just keep in mind that with a more aggressive brake pad compound, the rotors can take a beating if they get too hot for too long.

As always, you can find any of these brake upgrades and others at BuyBrakes.com who enjoys a bit of price smashing. After all, we're Veteran owned. Use coupon code Tundratalk10 at checkout!
