Need Brake Advice

My brakes on my truck just started to squeak a little. I was wondering what should i get to replace them, I've heard good about the Cyro Powerslot with Hawk pads. Should I get a set of those or should I go to my local parts store and get a set.

yea just turn the rotars and get the medium cost pads and make sure you re-grease the little sliding rods inside the boots that the caliper bolts to those make a huge idfference on how long your brakes will last

I've already had the rotors turned before and there pretty worn down. So i probably should replace them this time. I was also wondering how long would the Powerslot Cyro rotors last?

Power slots and the Hawk pads are awesome! The cyro are supposed to last longer so if you tow a lot and don't have a engine brake I would recommend them.
