Okay...
So ever since I bought my truck I have heard people complain about the factory brakes on the Xrunners....
I always said that I had no concerns with them at all....
That was until this morning...

On the way to work, I was driving pretty hard.
0-110 about 5 times in a row.
After the 5th time, I noticed a dramatic difference in my brakes.
at 110 trying to brake is like pulling teeth....
I understand now....

Anyone wanna lend me 2K for a BBK?

I just got mine a month ago....I have on 2 occasions had to slam on my brakes - both times I was going about 30mph...but when i did I heard loud clicking noise coming from the brakes (both times)- almost thought i wasn't going to stop - if I would have been in my last truck I would have stopped on a dime. Does everyone elses do this or do I need to make a trip to the dealership?

If you are thinking of a StopTech brake kit, you should act fast. They may not be available for much longer...

Gadget, I've noticed urd doesnt carry the xr 332 anymore on the webiste. Will you guys just stop selling them or will StopTech stop production all together?

well the complaints i have heard was that the brakes lots a natural feel and it became very detached feeling. as in there was no real feedback in the pedal.

Why is that? Will they stop making the kit for the X-runner?

Yeah I was kind of hoping to wait a year or two and wear out the stock ones before looking for an upgrade. $2k for a pair of rotors and calipers seems excessive to me so I was hoping for a cheaper alternative to surface over time.

the only complaint i have is the HUGE amount of Squicking that i get in everyday driving, and it can get loud, if it was once in a while, i wouldnt mind it that much, but it gets on your nurves.
