Brake Pads...2 trucks..help please
The trucks are a 2006 F250 6.0 4x4 and a 2001 F350 DRW V10 4x4
I have searched multiple forums looking for a straight (overwhelming) answer for brake pad recommendations, but have not come up with much. I apologize if this has been tackled a million times.
Basically its been narrowed to Hawk, Performance Friction Z, OEM, and motorcraft. Is there such thing as a "super heavy duty" pad sold by the dealer?
Will not be changing (OEM) rotors as both trucks are fine and there is no surging.
I like the idea of getting the OE pads because they have served me well (approaching 100k on the set), but am open to a "better" pad.
Do dealerships sell OE pads or Motorcraft pads--or are they one in the same? I am just more confused after all the reading.
Will I have to purchase additional parts with aftermarket pads?
Apparently Hawk's "SD" pads are not recommended for stock trucks?
Any and all advice is greatly appreciated. We use these trucks to tow horse trailers, hay trailers, and campers pretty regularly. We prefer no to low dust and no noise, but obviously as good as OEM performance or better.
