John,
I thought there was only one type. I don't remember having this
choice a few months ago. Try the EBC web page, I got mine from EBC
through a local dealer and their web page has lots of info. on,
including a sketch of all the pads.
Regards, Clive.

As far as I am aware there is only really one set of 100 series pads.
Not sure of the part numbers, but ask for front pads for a year 2000
LandCruiser Amazon - the dealer might not realise/appreciate what a 100
series is - I have come across parts guys that don't know these
designations.

Hi guys
Thanks for the replies. The cruiser was left in to toyota to have the
bushing fitted and while there I asked for 100 series pads for the front
which they said they would fit. When I collected it I was told that they
could not fit the 100 pads as they were just a little too big so they put on
80 pads. Is it possible that the 92 cruiser will not take the 100 pads. I
told him if I can get a part number I would go back to him.
Thanks

Jon, I would be amazed if any garage, particularly a Toyota agent, were
to fit what amounts to the "wrong" brake pads to any vehicle. In todays
highly litigous society if they were to deliberatly fit a non standard
safety critical part to a vehicle in their care and an accident happened
then they have left themselves wide open to be sued. It makes no
difference if you have asked them to do it. I suspect they made their
excuses to prevent any arguement. If you want the job done - DIY !

John,
They would only NOT fit (not sure regd 92 model) in your rotors are quite
new and very little wear on them. With brand new 100 pads (as little thicker
than 80 pad) they may not fit. I've heard of a few guys that just took off
the squel/shim pad on the back and that squeezed it in and another that
'wore' down the pad itself (not a great idea as abestos based I believe).
I've gone back to the 80 pads myself as the 100 didn't seem worth the price.
They made some difference but didn't notice a huge deal. Didn;t do an
exhaustive testing one against the other (60mph stop in x secs/feet, ditto
for 85mpg, braking coming down long hills, same for hauling a trailer
etc...)
