I don't know what kind of break pads were put on because I didn't do them myself (the shop did). But the mechanic there told me that they were a little bigger than the original ones (and that's supposedly why they were making a rubbing squealing noise right after they were installed). I'm starting to think that he didn't use the correct pads because my truck is a 2WD PreRunner and the parts for the brake system are the same as the 4WD but not the non-PreRunner 2WD. He mentioned that if I needed new rotors they would be more expensive than if it were a 4WD but I just looked them up and they are the same rotors used on a 4WD. So maybe he didn't notice that it was a PreRunner?
BTW, I have drums on the back.
