    Considerable improvement over my stock pads. Pedal feels a little spongy afterward but I did not replace brake fluid and my truck is now 5 years old. I believe spongy feeling is coming from fluid or possible bleed nesc. Install was easy. I did have my rotors machined as it was recommended by a friend. That made the install process more time consuming as I needed to remove the caliper and rotors. My stock pads had shims so it was also time consuming to clean and install these with the new pads. Some claim they no longer needed their shims but I did not notice a difference in the pad base thickness so I reinstalled my shims. The pads are quiet and I can notice an increase in stopping power which I had hoped for because I had recently lifted my truck and increased my tire size by two sizes and felt I needed more stopping power because of the increased rotating mass.
    I would recommend these pads for daily driver and occasional off road use. Seem to be quiet and low dust. I've put about 700 miles on since my install and before this review was written.

    Replacing the originals @ 63K miles and resurfacing the rotors to remove glazing. I would sugg. replace with original equipment to retain the quick stoppping power and responsive pedal. Got a good deal with the 20% off and most of the time I'm good with Wagner products, but these are just not as good as OEM Toyota.

              Before this purchase I used to change the brakes at the dealership. Not only the cost was so high, the brake never felt really good. Last time I went to change the brakes at the dealership was in November 2012. The brakes failed on me on July 12th and I went to get the brakes from Advance Auto Parts. The friendly staff members took care my needs and I put the brakes into my 2007 4Runner. Now I am a happy customer of Advance Auto Parts and I recommend Advance Auto Parts to all those who are looking for the best parts for the lowest price possible.

                I was very hesitant to buy these instead of going with stock or another aftermarket upgrade. I'm so glad that I did. They are quiet and bite really good.

                                The squeaking noise may come because of incorrect installation, brake dust, fail of universal joint and even a rotor. However, without the presence of your vehicle we would not be able to properly diagnose it nor provide you with a 100% answer.
