Brake Rotor ?

I have to put new front rotors on my 99 F250. I checked my build date at Ford and found out it was built on the cutoff day for the different rotors(03/22/99). They couldn't tell me which ones I should have. It has rear wheel abs only. Does that meen it has the early rotors? I don't even know if it has the right rotors on it now. The last time I replaced them they didn't ask for the build date and just sold me whatever I guess. I don't want to order rotors and have to pay a restocking fee if they are wrong.

I'd venture to say get the early 99's because I believe the difference was the abs...
Go somewhere else if they want to charge you a restocking fee.

My '99 was built after mid-year and I checked on rotors when I did all 4 brakes and the early '99's from what Ford said were rear abs only vs later 99's. Fortunately I had mine re-surfaced and put on Motorcraft pads (the heavy duty ones they refer to as Super Duty pads) and all is well. The Motorcraft come with all new brake hardware also. Don't use the lifetime pads they sell at the chain stores; use Motorcraft or NAPA pads.

It is not the concern of the pad going bad as much as it is the composition of the pad and the performance aspect. Alot of the lifetime pads will wear considerably more on your rotors than others not to mention the sometimes noise/squeal potential. From my years doing brakes with "lifetime" pads and others and also from dealing with machine shops that resurface rotors I will use a good quality pad versus a "get what you paid for" pad. Not all pads are created equal and when you are stopping a 7000 lb +/- truck with more lb when towing I am not willing to sacrifice on brake performance just to save maybe $20 to $30 and the opportunity to get new ones every few years on a free exchange. Again just my 2 cents worth..........
