Which brakes?

Hey guys. Going to be putting brakes on the truck this Spring. Just wanting to know what brakes and rotors are a good replacement. Don't want to spend a ton of money but want better than stock. I would like slotted rotors and good pads that don't make much noise. Just wanting to get some input and advice. Thanks for the help.

i recommend Powerslot rotors and hawk LTS pads.... Cryo rotors are better. F-250/F-350 Superduty 4x4 - Front Rotors (Pair) SRW/DRW Cryo Frozen

I would recommend Powerslot as well with either the Super Duty Pads the dealer has or Hawk, works for me at least

On some of the automotive shows I've been watching lately, they have been talking about EBC brake pads.
Here's a link:
EBC Brakes

Supposedly, they help you stop faster and are supposed to be very low dust generated from them. I did go to their website and they have rotors too.

Just a suggestion - Haven't used them.

EBC does make good pads. Never ran them on any of my vehicles, but I've have on several dirt bikes. The best part I found about them was they didn't fade like the stockers did.

ART rotors are fantastic. I have put them through some abuse and they held up perfectly.
