I've still got the factory pads and rotors at 250k. I rarely tow much more than 5k pounds and drive almost strictly highway, about 100 miles a day. Definitely interested in this thread since I am close to being due for replacements...and who buys brakes at the dealer??

I am watching this thread also. My all up weight hovers around 17,000 lbs. on my daily driver. not much towing, but a major service body, loaded, with mountain and city roads to commute. 147k miles on th' clock, with original rotors & pads.
God Speed to you and yours on your trips. Keep them brakes sharp and COOL!

i have to do mine this week. I would suggest to stay away from duralast gold. and from what i have been reading is ceramic brake pads are great but not for towing, since towing increases the temps once ceramic brake pads are over the max temp they are shot.

i am looking at these two. (from local supplier)

#1 Bendix Brakes MKD1068FM - Bendix Brakes Fleet MetLok Brake Pads - Overview - SummitRacing.com

#2 RAYBESTOS 397-PGD1069M - Raybestos PG Plus Professional Grade Brake Pads - Overview - SummitRacing.com

going back to motorcraft isn't a problem at the #2 spot.


kinda feeling like the bendix brand has set standards with the heavy diesel world and is onto something in the medium diesel world....worse case is the Pads are really badAzz and they start to out last the rotors

My truck has a daily weight of 12,000 lbs and it tows a 10,000 dump trailer often.
When I needed brakes last year I did a lot of research and found ART's
Applied Rotor Technology
They have been GREAT and well worth the money.
The other thing you should do is flush the brake and hydro boost systems.

+1 for ART.

Been using them for years on my 7.3L. Great product, great company!

ART is great for rotors. For pads I would go with Hawk Super Duty pads based on your towing. That's all I run on my trucks.

Since the Motorcraft OEM pads seem to be holding up for a long time, would there be any problems just going with them again? Also, I was told by my local dealership that Motorcraft now offers a "super duty" brake pad that are supposed to last longer and only cost $8 more per axle set. I'm thinking of just going with those. I'm at 107k miles and I still have some pad left on the fronts, but I'm just ready to get some new pads for peace of mind.
