i had a feeling i was gonna hear that but this is the thing guys...i would much rather pay someone who knows what they are doing to do it for me rather than take the chance i would mess something up (esp with BRAKES!) spineyes so again...what are some of your thoughts on how much that would cost me?

thanks! thumbsup

TRD brake pads would be very nice! If I had to guess a dealer might charge $200 or more to do this for you. I would call around and ask.

TRD Pads are not as good as you may think, they produce a lot of brake dust and wear down very quickly. Trust me i used to work for toyota.

I've had good experiences with both Hawk and EBC pads for my car. Don't get the racing brake pads unless you actually intend on racing your car full time.

Installing them should be less than $100 idunno
