'00 Upgrade

Well -- this is probably minor stuff for most of you but I have an '00 Excursion with a 7.3 PSD -- I bought it new -- now has about 70K miles. I tow a 10,000 pound Airstream travel trailer. I always had brake rotor warp problems and bounce after a dip in the road. Finally put PowerSlot rotors, Hawk pads and Edlebrock shocks on it. Took a trip towing the trailer through the mountains -- what a difference! Stops better and doesn't move over a lane after one of those dips in the interstate.

yup the Powerslot/ Hawk combo works great.... esp if you buy Cryo Frozen rotors... they are way harder than the regular Powerslot rotors so they wont warp as easily if any....

Power slot and Edlebrock

Great -- even after a while -- without towing -- the truck rides much better with the Edlebrocks and stopping is soooo smooth and better. Well worth the money. Should have done it a long time ago.
