    personally i hated the green stuff ebc pads. I dished out the extra money for good stopping power and "almost zero" brake dust to have my wheels black within two days. try summit racing pads, good pad for a better price.

    There are three series of EBC Green Stuff pads. Which did you get? I believe the 7000 series Green Stuffs are the creme de la creme for 4x4/SUV owners ... however they aren't the EBC pads one would normally tow with. For that, it should be the EBC Yellow Stuff pads for trucks & SUVs (http://www.ebcbrakes.com/automotive/...ds_index.shtml). I've never used them, but it's what I'd pick up if I were going with EBC's and towing. I'm more partial to Hawks, though, as evidenced by those being what's on my truck...
