Subed. I am looking to upgrade the brakes on mine. EBC stuff looks really good but damn is it expensive.

Anybody have opinions on this kit? Power Stop Part K1906-36 - Heavy Duty Truck and Tow Brake Kit - - 4 Wheel Parts

Define "best brakes"

Brakes that last longer with low dust don't do as good a job of braking, especially when towing

Brakes that wear and dust will generally do a much better job at braking.

I've been liking napa's severe duty lately. Low noise and dust while still stopping ok.

I guess I'll define best as good performance and long life. Not really worried about dust. I don't really tow anything but a dual ATV trailer and a bass boat and generally I'm light on the breaks, I drive like an old lady for the most part.
