need brake pads...autozone ok?

i need to replace my brake pads on all four corners. i've called autozone and if i get there top of the line pads, it will run me about $130 +/- for the entire job and they come with a lifetime warranty. are their pads good or do most of you use something else?

After getting 88k out of my OEM pads on my X, I am going to replace them only with Motorcraft. I've never gotten anywhere near that kind of mileage out of aftermarket pads. I am sure there are vendors on here that sell OEM pads cheaper than you can find at the dealer. Just my 2 cents. Good luck.

Just get a good ceramic or severe service pad and you should be fine. I believe that I payed about 50 a set for mine at my cost. As long as they are around 40 or more a set they should be fairly good. You definitely get what you pay for.

I put the duralast golds on my neighbors 01 F250 and they've been great. I use them on all my vehicles as well, no issues.

If you are going to use truck for DD only and basically a car go for the Autozone cheap stuff , but if you do any towing or haulling us ethe OEM Motorcraft that was designed for your truck.. There is a difference!!

On my 04 I burnt through the duralast gold pads about 3-4 times faster than the factory pads. And they made the wheels look like crap all the time. I went all motocraft parts this time around. Like posted above. If you just drive it as a car, It wont matter. If you tow, get the motocraft parts.

thanx for the input and explanations. that's what i was looking for! at this point, the truck will be used primarily as DD with the occasional tow duty. and the tow duty is pretty light. my boat/trailer only weigh about 6,000 lbs. thanx again!

I never get the lifetime pads the damn things will squeek forever. I'd rather replace the pads once a year as to have them squeek. I usually go with Napa medium grade pads.
