For starters, my car was built in Tsutsumi, Japan. I found the OEM Toyota brake pads and their part numbers online. I used the part finder application on Akebono's website, and decided to buy the following parts: ACT1210A , ACT1354B. Turns out, nothing fits. The shims for the tabs thinner in width compared to the OEM shims. The OEM backing plate shim is too small for the front akebono pads, and the front pads wont fit into the caliper bracket.


I'm not sure if its because I didn't try harder putting the pads in, or the cars built in Japan uses entirely different brake pads (shape), but I'd appreciate any help I can get!

It should fit.

Hmm.. I have until the 18th to return everything to RockAuto... I'll try again hopefully tomorrow, or next weekend. Gotta make sure to take a lot more pics next time.

Avoid PowerStop.
Why? I already got a set of POWER STOP 172183 Z17 Evolution Clean Ride Ceramic with Hardware. I just haven't had to replace my rear pads yet... I'm not worried at all though. They should be at least as good as the originals.

Maybe on the Corolla but on the Toyota trucks the PS pads just don't seem to hold up.
Vehicle weight?

When I had Z23's, the brake bite would vary on the outside weather conditions. If it was hot and dry, I swear I would be foot to the floor. If it is cold and moist, they bit. This got old and dangerous.

I've heard it may help if the brakes were hot beforehand but I am doubtful on this when my foot is pedal on the floor and I barely feel any brake sensation.

Raybesots EHTs has treated be well and bite everytime.

Which rear pads are you going with?
I think I'll go with the BENDIX CFC2183 Copper Free. Looks like they use it on certain Lexus vehicles as well. I've had some bad/meh experiences with Bosch (too noisy), and I've never heard of Dynamic Friction. I'll avoid Power Stop due to everyone's experiences with them.
