Powerslot cryo rotor with Hawk LTS pads is the best choice you can get before you get to very expensive upgrades...

also highly recommend switching to SS braided lines over the stock lines....

here is a link for you: Brakes

im sorry but im not a big fan of drilled rotors on our trucks... it is well known that high heat will produce cracks on drilled rotors at the point that their drilled... and trust me.. our trucks are def. heavy enough to create a good amount of heat....

slotted rotors are the only thing i would ever put on a SD
