Brakes

I guess I should post this in the other thread area but there is a lot more traffic here. So, I will probably need to do brakes at the end of summer. Who makes a good sloted or drilled rotor for our trucks? Looking for actual feedback from those who have ran after market.


Or is OE better for our trucks?

I like ART rotors! I ran them on my 7.3L and they took a TON of abuse (heat and abrasion) and did not warp. If you have an 05 and up, the stock rotors are pretty good though!

Look for the ones on ebay that are drilled, slotted, and cryo-treated.
Make sure you buy the right ones. Tell them details about your truck, if its 4x4, ect

I tried aftermarket (dimple drilled and slotted) and just recently went back to stock rotors. The stockers lasted almost 90k miles and the aftermarket about 30k miles.

Did you try the cryogenic treated ones? They say they last longer.

Nope, I figured that since the stockers held up for that long with towing my trailer that they should last about the same amount of time.

Quality does count. Which is why I'd go with those drilled and slotted rotors that receive a cryo treatment.
The company offering them machines rotors for just about every type of vehicle out there.

powerslot rotors and motorcraft pads, drilled is not nessicary and they tend to crack inbetween drills easier, and hawk pads dusted to much for my liking.

Ran the Power slots on my Ram 2500, drilled and slotted. Worked great until the caliber seized up and wiped out the rotor. You can't turn down drilled,dimple,or slotted rotors, it makes the cut interrupted and destroys carbide bits when turning them down.
