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!

hawk or EBC seem to be the way to go if you really want the truck to stop!

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.
