Aftermarket Brakes?

I am looking into getting some better brakes on my truck. Just seeing if anyone was running something better than stock, if so what?

Went to your site, but couldn't find any brakes.

You've got to PM him, they don't have anything on their site. Very weird, I know... it's more of an informational thing. I really don't get it. But Cary sells some crazy stuff. He's got the absolute baddest brakes you can get for our truck.

IMO, the cryogenic rotors with Hawk pads (like most members on here get) don't really perform any different than stock. It's when you start adding pistons to the calipers that you really start increasing the stopping power. However, it DEFINITELY ain't cheap to upgrade to that kind of system. Cross drilled and slotted rotors look cool, but without actual stronger calipers to bite down on them, you're not really getting anything different - if anything, I think you're losing surface space for the pads to grip on.

That's just my understanding anyway. Not knocking anyone's stuff. I'm looking around for buying new brakes, but it's hard for me to justify spending the big $$$ for the kit that I really want, especially when I don't tow anything. In the end, I may go with the cryogenic rotors with Hawk pads - but I honestly don't think it's gonna perform any different than stock. It might last a little longer, but it ain't gonna stop you faster.

For the absolute best I've found for our trucks, check out Cary's post here - God, I want those so bad. haha!

So if I can help please PM or email me.

I put the Ford/Motorcraft Super Duty brake pads on mine. I didn't need rotors yet but the ford pads feel good and stop good.
