Us 5 lug Tacoma owners really get the short end of the stick. The 6 lug 4WD trucks all got a decent 4 piston brake setup, whereas ours is almost the same size as the Camry. This issue is compounded for X-Runner guys, especially with boost on top!
From the success of our brake kits for the RWD Lexus cars (GS, SC, LS, etc), we have adapted and implemented a similar complete bolt on kit for the 2005-2015 Tacoma 2WD trucks, including X-Runner, excluding PreRunner. All 5 lug trucks.
The XAT Racing Lexus Brake Upgrade Kit comes with everything you need to bolt on this new brake setup, short of your favorite brake fluid. That includes calipers (optionally, also can be powdercoated as pictured), rotors, pads, pins, anti-rattle springs, mounting hardware, brackets, and stainless braided lines.
Calipers are sourced from a 2007-2020 LS460, LS460L, LS600h, and even the new LS500 4 piston fronts, RWD non-sport package K17 style. We typically source a used set and rebuild them, though we can also get brand new OEM Lexus/Advics ones if you prefer. These calipers are unique in that they use phenolic pistons, which is more heat resistant, instead of traditional metal. Top of the line space age stuff, meant for $100k+ cars! PLEASE NOTE THE BASE KIT DOES NOT INCLUDE CALIPERS.
We typically prefer the Posi-Quiet Centric/Stoptech pads, as they have excellent street performance and are not unnecessarily loud/squeaky once properly bedded in. Other options are available as well, if you prefer.
For discs, we use off-the-shelf preferred Centric/StopTech 2008-2014 IS-F 360mm (14.1 inch) rotors, not the C-TEK ones. They come cross drilled from the factory (just like the IS-F rotors are), though we have other bolt on options as well if you're going for a different style or preference. We've not heard of any issues with rotor cracking like some other aftermarket applications have reported.
Please note that calipers are supplied bare natural dark grey, but we can optionally rebuild them for you with new seals, and even powdercoat them as pictured above. Let us know what you'd like and we can work with you to make it happen!
Although this kit uses DOT approved components, please note it is meant for off road use only. Proper installation is required, and all safety precautions should be heeded.
