DRW 05-2010 good rotors?

Local auto parts stores have all the usual cheap enonomy or what they consider the "better" rotor.

I'm not looking for more cheap rotors... we've put powerslots or stop techs on almost all of the trucks now and i'm in need of finding REAR rotors for a dually F350 2006 and a 2007 F550... these are BIG rotors, 14" i believe or somewhere in that range and not the same as what all the websites list for SRW rear rotors.

I don't need the slots or drilled, but has to be a premium rotor and coated, so they last longer like the vanes and hat of it are black versus just straight iron.

I know powerslot makes them but a lot of sites don't list anything for DRW f350s... anyone have part numbers or any online places to order? thanks

I am about to run a set of performance 360 rotors, they have cuved vent vanes, curved slots and the ones I am going to run are cross drilled. 3 year warranty heavier than stock (thicker pad surfaces) and come silver or black zinc coated.
Understand that any coating will eventually fade/wear off. but anything is better than nothing. I am paying 540 shipped for all 4 rotors and heavy duty non ceramic pads. rotordepot. they also sell a non S&D oem type set but I don't recall if they were coated.
I will be posting my review on them after install.

2006 KR F350 Fat Back
boost tubes and intercooler air intake
4" exhaust complete with Catalytic and muffler, blue spring.
OIL bypass and DIY "full flow" coolant filter
STC, Dummy plugs, stand pipe update

If it were not for FORDitude I would not have a 6.0.

performance 360 drilled and slotted rotors installed

Finally got around to installing these rotors with new calipers, pads, brake lines and shocks. I will explain my process for those wondering about performing this job.
fairly easy and straight forward under 4 hours for complete job in driveway.

Use jackstands...shortcuts are accidents waiting to happen. I learned this the hard way a looonnngg time ago.

Only special tool needed is for removing the rear wheel hub bearings.

Front Brakes, remove wheel then remove 2 bolts that hold the caliper bracket on and pull caliper and bracket as one unit, if you are replacing caliper you are best off (normally) replacing the bracket as that is normally where a sticking rotor problem comes from.


You will not need to separate the two. otherwise simply remove the 2 caliper to bracket mount bolts if you intend on cleaning and re lubing bracket. That is the cheaper route but not always correct route.
removing rear calipers is the same process. Remember to remove brake lines. do not hang calipers by the lines as they are heavy and WILL damage your lines.
Remove dually hub adapter by putting an extension through the holes and a short socket on the bolts, socket will have to be removed from extension for each bolt.

Tap on the side of extension around the adapter and it will come off. Spray a bit of penetrant on the rotor to hub union and continue to remove remaining wheels, calipers, hub extensions allowing penetrant to soak in while removing other wheels etc and applying penetrant as you go.
Use a hammer and tap on rotor center circle until it starts to move on hub then simply wiggle and pull until it comes off.
Clean new rotors with brake cleaner to remove any manufacturing oils that you do not want to remain on the rotor surfaces.
slide rotors on hub, replace hub extensions, install new calipers and pads, and new brake lines.
Rear brakes are similar to front except you need the hub tool to remove bearings and the hub adapter is removed after the rotor is off and is accessed from the inside of the rotor a 12 point socket will work but a 6 lobed, not a 6 point, is better and will not be prone to being damaged.

Replace inner seal (and bearing if need be) then prelube bearing surfaces and seal contact area before CAREFULLY replacing hub/rotor assembly. An extra hand is a good idea as these are heavy assemblies.
brake lines are simple remove mount bolt on caliper, one support bracket bolt and separate flex line from hard lines.
Shocks are also simple, spray mounting bolts with penetrant at same time as initially removing wheels.

The performance 360 rotors are advertised as being made heavier than stock with thicker material. You will see that they are within a few millimeters of being identical and if you take into account that the originals have some wear and some rust I doubt there is a difference in thickness of the braking surface. the weight is also identical, checked with my scientific bathroom scale..
Are drilled and slotted needed on these trucks? NO.
Are they effective? YES. This thing will almost give you reverse whiplash.
Woth the money? I think so. So far I like them and I have over 500 miles of no more than 35 miles each trip on them and the black is still on the bracking surface with some light wear showing. I have pulled my 32 foot gooseneck with about 14000 lbs of hay and these brakes were very comfortable especially when I lost my trailer brakes on the 2nd load.

Here are the photos of the process and comparisons of old/new
