Recommended Brakes and Rotors??

My brakes are on their way out and I have no idea what would go well with it.

I bought it about 4 months ago...

you cant go wrong with motorcraft pads and rotors, stay away from duralast and pep boys and other auto stores that sell you junk parts. Besides motorcraft id use maybe EBC, SSBC, or Hawk Brake Pads. For Rotors besides motorcraft again, you could use the others listed, raybestos is also very good as well

If you have the money I recommend SSBC all the way around.

^ SSBC is a awsome brake system but its kinda expensive tho as stated. I would love to have the quick change calipers but its kind of unnecessary for me bc i dont tow huge loads on occasion and need the extra braking power. i usually tow once in a while @4-9K at most, as a matter of fact when it comes time to do my brakes i might get the SSBC Rotors and Big Bite Pads for the front and rear, but even that will be kind of expensive. i think the choices you choose are good enough, Hawk is Great and Centric is the maker of powerslot and stop tech. So you should be good.

I am in a bit of a quandary.

I'm working way too much lately to have enough energy to do the job myself.

Taking it to the dealership would probably result in a large bill. Anyone know of a good shop in Cincinnati that I could take it? Or will the dealer not kill me with a big bill?

I personnally can't justify paying someone to do an easy job. I understand you might be busy, but that is just throwing money away. I was in the same boat, working crazy hours when I did mine. I broke it up, did the front pads and rotors one week and the rear the following week. I have no idea what a dealership would charge for this. I guess the easiest way is to call the dealership and get a rough quote from them. I have Hawk LTS and power slot rotors and love the combination.

Good luck which ever route you go. Each evolution took a couple of hours tops, and that was with a couple of cold ones.
