Hi guys, noob here, first post. Two questions I need help with. I have an S2000 so I have no clue what brands you guys use on your Toyotas' or which are any good for that matter.

I've searched and I found a bit of info on the plugs but nothing on the pads.

My dad has an 05' V6 LE and needs his brake pads changed. Apparently the dealer wants $155 for all four corners!! Thats insane!!

What pads do you guys use? And if you use OEM, where do you guys buy them at?

Also, is there a good cheap site where you guys order your spark plugs from? Is sparkplugs.com a good site?

Any help is appreciated, thanks.

The plugs don't have to be replaced until about 100K plus miles because they're long-life iridium tipped plugs, so cross them off your list for now. And just use OEM pads. You can purchase them from a dealer.

OEM Toyota pads are really very good but if the pricing is too high, go to the local parts store for some Wagners. They aren't as clean as the oem, but the price doesn't compare either.

Wagners are not very good. Raybestos Advanced Tech. or Professional Grade ceramic are better choices.

for your s2k, i'd suggest porterfield pads. brake dust isnt too bad and has a hell of a bite.

What??? :confused: I'm talking about the Camry....

Besides, for my S I use Hawks.
for the camry, just use OEM or whatever autozone's special is.

hawks are good but if you dont mind paying a little more, the porterfield's will last longer.

I plan on using OEM but the site I plan on buying from which I posted above has 3 different part #'s...

i believe you need to get the Mark AK PA533 pads...the other pads are for the SE/XLE's. for the rears, look at your VIN number... if there's a J for the first number, you will need the Japan built pads; otherwise you will need the USA built pads.

OEM is best. always.
id rather do it right the first time than cheap out and bitch later when the brakes squeak and leave tons if dust on the wheels.
