Brakes

Is there an upgrade on brakes for the super duty. Bigger rotors and pads. Or is there just replacement parts

Lots of people swear by the OEM pads and rotors from the threads I've read. When I had to get new pads, I went with Motocraft. I didn't need new rotors at the time since they could be turned down but if I did, I'd still go with OEM spec.

I did a ton of research on this as well when I thought I was going to need new pads. Based on what I read I would go back with OEM. Seems like all the guys that went aftermarket found out that they made a bunch of noise, dust and wore faster with no big improvement in performance.
