My Toyota Tacoma has proven to be a hard worker ever since I gave it a minor overhaul a while back. However, there are a few mechanical issues that I failed to address the first time around. Most Tacoma owners would probably grow used to them and say “that’s just how it is.” But I had to fix them.

Some claim that when it comes to stopping disc brakes are where it's at. Sure a set of multi-pot Brembos look extra tough, but the real reason for many is their fear of ever having to tackle the maintenance on those diabolical mechanisms known as drum brakes.
