I'm just running PowerStop Z36 pads on all four corners. Stock rotors, stock calipers. The "Ol' Guy" definitetly stops better than w/stock pads. It's come in handy a few times. I can't speak to the quality of their rotors/calipers - I just didn't want to spend the $$.

Iíd heard that, but wasnít sure. They seemed similar, but I wasnít too worried either way - sprayed them black and slapped them on.

The brake pads are meaty as hell. Rotors were nice looking too.

Fair enough, I am still working on finding the right F150 to add to the mix as a DD. Since I rarely go anywhere (hooray working from home), I hate to drive the big girl when I don't really need her lol.

So far, I like the crispness of the stop. It helped a lot with unloading the round bale this morning too LOL.

I was wanting to do those, but needed calipers and rotors as well - the comprehensive kit made my life easier than piecing things together - but I have heard really good things about the EBC yellow pads - and EBC in general.

BRUUUHHHH I almost did this morning on my weekly hay run. BUT, I behaved and decided not to. I feel as though it would be too easy to find the crazy woman in the pink and white Super Duty, with a mangled round bale in the bed.

It is too expensive to muck up - the drive-thru remains intact as a result hahaha.

Edit: I really need to brush up on my .org emojis...

Calipers are actually pretty easy to service if they have not been cooked. Remove the pistons, remove all rubber seals thoroughly clean the seal grooves,polish metal piston with fine Emery cloth, brass brush for plastic. Personally if the seals are nice and pliable I clean them and reuse them. Obviously if you find piston or bore wear/damage, it is time to replace. The reason they "stick" is the gunk in the seal grooves forces the seal so tightly against the piston that it doesn't release

I was feeling lazy and really didn't want to fool with them to be honest LOL. The boots were iffy, and they didn't compress very well in general. It was a solid investment, especially considering I have been hauling the boys (Ace and Jack) more often these days.

i cleaned mine up after getting a ton of md and sand and gunk in them wheelin out in the woods here one started to drag when i was in reno so i pulled it cleeaned it up and slapped it back in in a gas station parking lot...
so far so good been probably 10k since then but at some point i wa going to want to replae the rotors and pads at least and maybe calipers...
i have heard good things about the power stops and one ther brand available on ebay for FAR cheaper ...but ony heard from one member about them but
the discount is hard to ignore so i may try them out too
if i feel particularly fat and sassy i will likely grab the power stops though just because i have heard MORE people using them with good results

I like mead
