Default New to me '07 GX470

It's been a while since I've been part of the lexus group but I decided to pick up an '07 GX470. I'm aware of some of the gremlins associated with this truck. Timing belt, air suspension, drive shaft, dash board, etc. Overall the car is in really good shape for being 12 years old and having 180K on the odo. 2 owners with most service records going back a few years. Timing belt will need to be done soon and the it needs tires and brakes. The blower fan is making a ticking noise so that will need some attention soon.

Anyway, back to the question. Are there any "recommended" pads/rotors for the GX? I'm just looking for oem replacement at this point, this is just an A-B truck for now.

Thanks in for any help and feedback.

I've used Hawk LTS and was very happy with them, I'm currently using Akebono Ceramic and they've been good as well.

Another of the common failure points on these trucks in seized front calipers. If you're planning on doing pads & rotors anyways, think about getting some '10 GX460 front calipers and rotors instead (pads are the same), and enjoy not worrying about doing a caliper per year going forward.
