Finally replaced brakes

The brakes on my truck lasted 42000 miles! Thats pretty darn good. I had put 3 sets on my 99 Dodge by 40000 miles. I'll probably reget saying this but that is the first thing I've had to do other than normal maintenance. People talk about Cummins being trouble free my butt. By now with that Dodge I had replaced 3 lift pumps and 2 VP-44's.

At 30k mine did too but the last half went alot faster than the first. I kept wondering why it was squeeking because the pads were good turned out the "squeeler" was rubbing.

I have 126k on my stock pads and rotors. I just turn the rotors every 40k. I do alot of highway driving though.

I turn them to ensure that they wear properly. I should say its more of a rotating them front to back. Ive done it on every truck ive ever owned and it makes the brakes last along time. They are getting pretty close to needing replaced now though. Its on the list for the next month or so as well as tie rods.

My truck had 101,000 before new pads. The Motorcraft pads are the best out there.
