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.

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.

    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.

    • So I'm finally getting ready to get the boat wet for the first time this year.   I noticed last night the steering wheel is very tough to turn.  I did done research on some older threads on this site containing to my problem.   One tip I read was to check the big nut next to the motor on the steering arm.  Its printed on the nut -caution**tighten.  Some one said that nut should be loose.  Mine was wrenched tight apparently.  Does the warning on the nut mean , make sure its tight or do not wrench tight???  Btw it's a 05' mercury 115 if that makes any difference.   I will also re lube and clean the components also to see if it makes a difference.   Thanks for any input!!

    • I will admit to this :   there are a couple of crystal clear, cold lakes in Yukon,  within a mile or so of my cabin, where you COULD actually eat and enjoy pike. They did not compare to some nice Grayling but  you COULD eat them. I'm not a fish eater unless it is fresh king salmon or kind crab but quite a few folks would eat the pike. And I will admit to enjoying a chunk of walleye now and then so long as it is slathered in hot sauce and I have had 13 double Makers Marks. But hey!.....you fellas enjoy them!
