rotor suggestions - 01 350 CC

Hey Folks,

Looks like it's time for rotors on the rig...

What's a good rotor for my 01 F350 CC 7.3?

I've noticed (when the brakes were good) it had decent braking but, stopping power would fade when I had to get on them hard. They'd slow down good at first but the longer I had to stay on the pedal, the more they would stopping power would fade.

I was thinking of putting vented disks on the front and replacing the rears with stock comparable units.

What are your suggestions to get better/reduced fade action out of these things?

I don't want to break the bank but, will open the wallet for the right thing.

thanks!

-dave

If you tow heavy go with cryo rotors, if you tow just every blue moon get you some brembo oem rotors off ebay. I just got my brembos off ebay for 100 shipped. I think the cryo powerslots are like 150 a piece.

Cryo'd Powerslots (not drilled!) with Hawk LT pads (not HD). They are great. You will not be disappointed.

Please let me know where to find the Brembo's off of Ebay. I just bought a 2003 7.3 F250 CC and the brakes are warped...

you just have to check ebay from time to time. I just ordered mine a couple weeks ago but right now they don't have any on there. I paid 110 shipped or something around there for front brembo rotors and some ceramic pads. I may tow once a year so I am not worried about having some serious pads and rotors.

Powerslot Cyro rotors with LTS pads is the way to go... and if you really want to make an even better improvement get some SS braided brake lines as well...

ss lines do make a noticeable difference especially if your lines are old and worn like mine. I put some on my mustang cobra about 5 years ago and it was a nict firm feel. No more room for those brake lines to expand. If you have the dough get em!
