Some may find this excessive, but every 15k is how often I would adjust those rear drums. I found that the later 01-02 drum setup require less frequent adjusting.

Wow! that's dedication!

Not sure if applying the handbrake while the car is moving backwards trick really works (won't work if your rear brake mechanism is frozen/rusted stuck) but I do that all the time.

I don't think that trick works. Never heard of anyone using it with success. Wanna hear dedication? The original owner of one my 4Runners gave me the records. Adjusted brakes at very oil change!

Will the tundra rotors (43512-0C011) work w/ the oem 4runner calipers?

just looking for a more robust rotor. also seems the PowerStop rotors get very mixed reviews.

Nope. the Tundra rotors are thicker.

Quite happy with how it turned out, and can recommend the 199mm upgrade.
This is all great info! Out of interest, which calipers did you go with in the end? Also, have you found any squealing out of the tundra brakes, like others have mentioned?

just throwing in a mention: i went with Power Stop KC2324 Z23 and they are doing great. no complaints. i installed them a year and seven months ago (9,000 miles) and no issues after proper bedding.
