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.

    •   Well Friday, Saturday, and Sunday have all come and gone. And nothing came, because your link is Zero Hedge.     I just took that straight from Wikipedia. It's amazing home much those last few words just keep showing up.
    • http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/trumpometer/   This is what you are looking for.
    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
    • Nonetheless there are some forums here which actually have active informative discussions without all of the bafflegab found in this one.
