Time for Brakes

Well its time to put new brakes on the '00 and was curious as to what brake pads everyone on here uses. Should i put factory ford pads on, or can i use some pads from schucks or napa. what kind of material should i use, ceramic, metallic, or whatever they are? my rotors do not feel to be warped, so should i still turn them or just do the pads? thanks!

I'm in that period of time also (need new pads). One thing I don't do is to turn rotors at the brake pad replace time. If you can put a dial indicator on the rotor to see what the run out is (warpage). I would recommend flushing out the old brake fluid.

I have Hawk pads, they work great. But I don't think there is anything wrong with factory pads or cheaper pads. Most of the time, one probably couldn't tell the difference.

Spend the $20 and get your rotors turned, and throw some Wagner pads on there.

On my 06 I recently had to do brakes. Rear pads were gone and rotors were deeply scored. Fronts were more glazed than a doughnut.

Tossed the stock pads, rotors, and brake lines into the garbage and went with Hawk LTS pads, Powerslot Cryo Rotors, and Crown SS Braided Lines. Also flushed the Dot 3 fluid and switched to Dot 4. Huge difference - especially when hauling the camper to and from the Sierras.

I would turn the rotors, worth the extra cash and will prolong the life of the new pads!
I had a lease truck and it was close to turn in time so I went with cheap pads. yeah, couldn't even make it 2 month they were squealing so bad I had to take them back and get better pads!

Now you tell me!!! There's two or three grades/prices of pads at a.z. Which one did you install? I just installed the best A.Z.s pads. I guess time will tell. If they squeel/squeek.
