    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.

    I'd love to spend the money and get disc in the rear I've just heard different things about problems with the brake booster and all that.
