    hey mashburn..
    how did the sunroof fix go??

    about the brakes.. calipers. When mine went bad I bought new Toyota ones instead of the re-manufactured ones. So I can only speak to what I saw, the new ones were much better looking than the re-man Toyota ones, they looked bad! Maybe they have a better company reman them now but 4 years ago wasn't good at all. you could check out metro toyots's website https://www.toyotaparts.metro-toyota.com/ or just call them.. I bet sparks toyota would also have the new ones too. https://www.sparksparts.com/

    you know another one I keep forgetting is McGeorge toyota, they have some awesome prices too! https://toyotaparts.mcgeorgetoyota.com/

    I would stay away from anything Dorman or Cardone remanufactures. They are horrible. Centric might be a possibility, but what I did was give up the guessing and just buy it new.

    Now about the brake pads, that's easy.. porterfield carbon/kevlar r4-s (Street) pads. Not cheap but they are awesome with the ability to stop. they make them in their shop in california. www.porterfield-brakes.com and yes they're good in winter too! I've driven them in -10 degree weather and they stopped great. Sure, they were better when it was hotter, but it's not like the compound had to warm up to have friction to stop. price for front is $89.95 and the price for rears is $89.95.

    yup.. here's the link.. front

    you want the r4-s pad it's a street pad, the others are race track pads. that's if you get the porterfield brand.

    rears

    Thanks Mitch in regards to the sunroof I just pulled the tracks and closed it and just bit the bullet and decided to just not have a functioning sunroof which sucks but it is all right. Regarding the brakes thank you so much for the information. Once I make decision I'll make sure to write a review on them here to help others make their decisions.

    hey you're welcome. Ahh so you just have the sunroof closed, but that's it. Hey makes sense for now. Glad I could give you the info about the brakes. Once you get the porterfield r4-s brake pads, if you do, you'll thank me! They really are that great. and definitely a review would be awesome
