    My truck needs all new brakes. I got some money to do this with now. And i need them badly. anyone know of factory strength rotors, with increased stopping power, and high performance brake pads? Also, I'm on a budget.

    Thanks.

    I went with the Summit Racing package. The rotors seem to be of high quality, but the pads aren't the best. Don't get me wrong, they're better than stock and I've had worse, but I've also had better. I personally like the Hawk HP pads (I've only had them on my sports cars though, never on my truck). The Summit package might be a good compromise for performance/budget.

    For rotors, I have had the best luck with NAPA Heavy Duty. For pads, I think I like the performance of less expensive pads better. I have never done brakes with anything other typical autostore replacement style parts, so I cannot comment on the others.

    EBC is my main source of braking stuff, they also have slotted rotors but I usually stick with the regular rotors. I use the "Greenstuff" brake pads and they have hardly any brake dust, so your fancy new wheels stay cleaner longer. They also have "yellowstuff" pads, those are high performance pads that create a little more dust but they will make you stop in an even shorter distance.

    I forgot to mention that the rotors the came from Summit are slotted and dimpled.

    Mhmm, put my truck in the shop today. And damn, $110 an hour for check engine light diagnosis. I didn't want them to change my rotors and pads! That would would cost a fortune! Now, I'll be ordering my brakes and stuff after i get my truck out of the shop, to see how much money i have left from my paycheck.

    For the money I am really happy with the NAPA Ultra Premiums rotors and gold pads.

    Powerslot Rotors, Hawk LTS Pads and Russell Stainless Brake Lines. That's the setup I have on my 2500 and it's a day and night difference from the OEM stuff. Reasonably priced as well.
