    Default Brake Upgrades

    Alright guys, I want to get some opinions on some brakes pads/rotors. Im looking at getting some nicer aftermarket ones so that maybe I can get by without having to change them out from stopping my truck, plus I am just not happy with the stopping power. Any suggestions?

    There are some really Good Aftermarket Rotor's/Pads, as mentioned above EBC's, I have SSBC's Slotted Rotor's W/Hawk H.P. Brake Pads.......Beyond going with a New Rotor/Pad setup, I would also mentioned, depending on your Budget and that is take a Look at going with a Set of Stainless Steel Braided Brake lines......once again which is what I've Done, with the SSBC's and SS Brake Lines, this Brake setup is and has been a Huge Improvement over the Factory Brake setup.
