    Hi Forum,
    I'm a newbie here so please forgive my total naivety. There is a 88 tacoma that is available for cheap near where i live and id love to buy it however the advert describes that though its mechanically still good, "there are issues with the grabbing brakes and these components are no longer available"

    Given the price id be happy to spend a few grand fixing the issue. But is this something that can be done or am i entering into a world of pain?

    Would really appreciate your guy's expertise on this.

    Do some research and see if there are any after market parts available. Check Rockauto.com. also keep in mind that the Tacoma name wasn't used until 1995.
