Thinking about new brake pads and rotors

I was thinking about some new front brake pads and rotors and saw these on amazon and did not know how they rate. i will be towing a 32 ft fifth wheel. The truck is a 2000 f250 powerstroke. These are the deal.

Take a look at the Nakamoto pads and rotors (available in drilled/slotted) from 1A Auto, the ones I put on my '04 have been treating me well

If you're going with Power Stop consider this:

From their website:
"Differences between Power Stop Z23 vs Power Stop Z36:
Power Stop Z36 is basically for the truck tow vehicle which demands the heavy brakes, whereas Power stop Z23 for the less heavier vehicles.
Dimension of both brake pads are different, Power Stop Z23: 14x14x10 inches whereas Power stop Z36: 14x14x12 Inches.
Weight of the both power stop pad is different. Weight of Z23 is 60 pounds and Z36 is 70 pounds, Which means toughness of Z36 is higher as compare to Z23."

I put Z36 pads on my truck. Stayed with the stock rotors. They work well. When I tow, I tow a 12k 5th wheel.

I've had real good luck with Motorcraft severe duty pads. BRSD756 is the part number. I got 49k out of the last set and regularly pull a 40ft gooseneck with 8-15k on it. The most important part of that setup is the trailer brake controller.

I second Supercruty on this. I ended up getting a complete rotor/pad kit though because the oem rotors were shot but way over used too. 23k miles so far and absolutely no issues. My truck rarely drives empty anymore. It either sits or it tows (5th wheels, skid steers, side by sides) and has been a big improvement for me. I have also put the powerstop brand pads on my wifes Subaru and my commuter car and both had a feel-able difference improvement wise over whatever pads were on them before.

Very little/no dust, no brake fade even when brakes failed on a 35ft 5th wheel in Reno. I have been very impressed for price/quality.

I've also been using the Powerstop complete caliper/rotor/pads on both of our shop trucks and I've been fairly pleased with them considering the price.

Don't just put performance rotors/pads on the front. Do all 4, you need the system balanced for proper stopping.

Thinking about new brake pads and rotors

Ive used the Z36 Powerstop Kit (pricey at the time) with core return was also costly. Take into account buying with taxes and return core charges. After a year and northern weather snow/salt riddled roads had a rear caliper fail (poorly rebuilt, defective boots) also with front caliper had seized caliper pins. The whole Ford systems have been this way for years as we all know but I had to go for replacement parts so went to dealer and powerstop rotors were still good but replaced both calipers with Ford OEM, they also only make New now not rebuilt and come with all parts and pads. Were not bad price wise. If had to do all over again Id probably not use powerstop again, and now only use neverseize instead of grease for pins.
The powerstop kits look nice all pretty red and all but for the price theyre just rebuilt Ford calipers in the kit pretty shoddy work. Just went new from Ford instead last time.

Power Stop's Z36 for me. about 65,000 miles on them. Look like I've got another 65K before I replace them.

I really like the EBC drilled/slotted rotors, wearing very nicely and quiet. Can't speak for pads since I have a custom bigger aftermarket caliper setup.
