    i use duralast (autozone) on all the vehicles i work on. pads are usually about $20 with a lifetime warranty and rotors should have a 2 year. kinda nice not having to pay for pads more than once per vehicle

    Brakes are the most vital part of your truck. Personally I don't know why people get the bargain parts. Yes I spent a little more but I've got over 10,000 miles on this STOPTECH rotors and 2000 of those miles are towing. I can still see the cross hatching from when there new, and the pads barley worn at all. Not to mention my rims dont get dirty!!!! Check the pics in my profile to see the parts.
