I agree. Iíve locked up and had some fun tire noise a few times by accident.

+1 for being scared under hard braking.

It is, i shit you not, if you read through the forum you'll get similar stories on OEM pads. I don't do much modding so I keep everything OEM, except my oils and tires. My original shocks lasted 160k, I replaced with OEM for a fraction of the cost of the 5100's I considered.

Am I just crazy or it's just the way the 4runner stops? It would be great to see how some other 18 4runner stops compares to mine.

I've been driving my runner since new in 2012. The only times I have had nose dive is when I wasn't paying attention to traffic or something ran out in front of me, maybe 5 or 6 times in 180k miles. You really have to hit the brakes quick and hard to get the nose dive. Otherwise, normal attentive driving only requires easy braking which it does very well. The runner always stopped perfectly and the ABS worked great. Only issue is all the crap laying on the inside ends up in the floorboards. Not the trucks fault for stopping like it is supposed to.

That will help a ton. I put 5100ís on mine set at .85 and it made a huge difference, no more nose dive.
