Replacement brake pads

6 posts in this topic

Time to replace the pads on my supercrew after 85000 miles. I've always thought this vehicle was a little "soft" in the braking department, especially when towing so nows the time to make a change. I was thinking of EBC 6000 street pads and good rotors. Does anyone have any experience with these? How about Hawk or Performance Friction?

No, I don't buy cheap brake pads anymore, they cost to much.

I just stuck pads in my truck, I went with HD OE pads.

They are really nice as far as performance goes, stopping will be greatly improved. They do kick out lots of dust and dont last as long though. With performance brakes plan on doing pads and rotors in about half the time of the OE stuff. They are much more agressive so they bite harder and wear faster. You will beable to stop on a dime though. If just depends on if the performance is worth the tradeoff to you or not.

They make like 8 different compounds from stock replacement to high wear ultimate grip racing pads. So you can have anything you want and take the tradeoffs asociated with each. Their HSOforum is pretty good and I got alot of information, just looking for personal experience of these on a Ford pickup. I would go with he 6000 series 4 X 4 pads.

The nice thing about a company like this is you have a choice on what you want, instead of going to your local parts store and just getting what they sell.
