Most companies only sell OEM reman'd calipers.

Where it differs between companies is the quality of the aftermarket seals and components installed in them.

I'm going on 4 years with my Powerstop calipers with no issue.

@4Runner4Leon try re-bedding your brakes. When I installed my rotors, I went on some "spirited" drives and heated up my brakes big time. I thought I had warped them but realize that the pad material wasn't evenly distributed on the rotor, I could see it. I did another brake bedding proceduce and the wobble went away.

If that doesn't do it, just have them turned at a machine shop for cheap.

Thanks, I'll give that a shot. I bedded them in per the instructions, and they were fine for a while. Just recently I noticed the chatter again. I'll try the procedure again.

Pedal Feel?

This is a little off-topic, but with the 199 upgrade does it change the pedal feel at all? I keep getting inconsistent info. If you go with the 199 and bleed your brakes properly or have a shop bleed them does the pedal travel or feel change (and is it noticeably obvious) with the 199 upgrade?

It didn't change te pedal feel for me at all... That's why I stayed away from the 231mm upgrade. My '98 brakes great now.

I just installed the 199 Centric Posi-Quiet calipers and Centric premium rotors yesterday
https://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/...b,caliper,1704


I've been pleased with Centric stuff on my other cars, so I expect I'll be happy with them on the 4Runner. I like the coated hub & edge on the rotors, and they've run straight. Unfortunately I broke a corroded hard brake line, so my rig is still on stands. Hopefully, get to that tomorrow. It's probably drained the master cylinder while it's been sitting, that will add to the fun.

I just did the 199 brake upgrade on my 2002 4runner,. Got all the parts from O-Reillys auto parts.

The 199 upgrade was not too bad to do myself, bleed them as normal.
I really like them on truck, took boat for tow for last time for the season and could tell the bigger brakes where on. Very happy, had to do no mods to truck or rims, just out of the boxes and bolt on.

I just bought my 2002 4runner v6 4x4 used. Needed a tow vehicle for my boat and other toys, ice fishing, and hunting.

Been very happy with it. My first Toyota, for 270000 miles on it. Cant believe how nice driving truck it still is with all the miles on it!

Just makes me wonder what a new one must drive like...

Last owner did take very good care of it.

It drives circle around my old ford f150 that died at about 170000 went thru 3 engines and 2 rear ends, what a piece of crap that was. I bought it new and nothing but failures and dealership trying to avoid every warranty issue.. made me give up on owning American cars and trucks.

since for last 10 years had 2 Subaru cars first one went 289000 timing belt took it out, second one is at 240000 and still going strong.
My tow vehicle was a 99 AWD chevy astro van that made it till 179000 and rusted frame took it out in June.

Really happy with my Toyota 4runner!!!

What is the rotor size and brake pad size difference between the factory 3gen and the smaller 199 braking system?

Also what is the caliper piston diameter of the OEM 3rd gen, the 199 (45mm I think), and the 231mm?

Tonight I just confirmed by measuring, the 199mm and the 231mm calipers have the same size pistons, 45.36mm diameter.
