Time for new brakes.....

So I have 93,000 on my oem front pads, but they are starting to squeak. So I got a set of the EBC 7000 Green stuff brake pads. I have done a few sets of brakes in the past but this is the first on this truck. Its an 06' F250, with obviously the Dana 60 front axle. My friend thinks i need to get the hub socket in order to take off the disc for turning. Is this correct or do the discs float on the lugs. Thanks for the help, I will let you know what I think of these pads.

In an ideal world I would have all ten fingers on my left hand, leaving my right hand a permanent fist for punching...

They are easy to do just like any other front wheel drive car. I had mine off and they were to thin to machine, hardly have any metal left to remove so be prepared to shop for new ones

Please let us know results of how those pads work. I think I am about due for brakes this next few months. Are the green stuffs supposed to perform better? How much were they/where did you get them?

EDIT: Nevermind, looks like about $105 from summit. Here is what the site says about them:

"For a small price premium over the 6000 series, these pads are THE ULTIMATE SUV/4x4 FRONT END PAD. They will stop faster and last longer with almost zero brake dust and are EBC's premium offering for heavy 4x4s. These pads are GUARANTEED noise free. Average friction coefficient 0.45mm. Features and benefits include chamfers and slots, shimmed, and coated with EBC's own Brake-In friction accelerator for fast bed-in"

Might have to keep them in mind.

2005 F350 SRW, Crew cab short bed Lariat FX4. 85k. BPD HD oil cooler setup, BPD EGR cooler, Scanguage monitor.

I got mine on Auto Parts & Auto Accessories - Over 6 Million Auto Parts, Aftermarket Parts, Truck Accessories & Car Accessories they where $87.00, and there was a sale of 20% off when you purchased over $90.00 so I got an oil filter that was marked down from $30.00 to $15.00 already, so with tax I rolled out the door with free shipping, the pads and performance filter for $94 bucks flat. Summits prices are to high on most stuff.
