Toyota Tacoma Hawk Brake Pad & Rotor Upgrade Kit

Yesterday I installed a Hawk brake pad and rotor kit on a 2013 Toyota Tacoma.  Hawk pads are the only thing that stands up to some of the roads we have here on the big island of Hawaii that could pass for cliffs.

One particular road here is so steep, it killed the rotors on this truck with only 10,000 miles on it.  The dealer wanted to machine the rotors. I suggested how about we upgrade and fix the problem once and for all. The customer agreed. So I ordered Hawk Sector 27 high-performance brake kit that comes with drilled and slotted rotors with Hawk pads all in one kit.

There is a break-in procedure after installation, and I was expecting these rotors to be noisy, and to my surprise, they weren’t. This is going to be my shop’s new brake upgrade package from now on.
