View Full Version : I need to stop!
05-27-2007, 08:51 AM
Ok so I lifted the truck and am running some big meats and my stock brakes arn't cutting it. I have damn near run up on a couple peoples trunks when traffic stoped quickly. What do I need to do? I have been told I need to upgrade my rotors. I have no idea on what to order for my truck. I am going to buy online and have a budy help me install. Give me some hints on what to do as far as pads, rotors, and maybe even new calipers. I would like to keep it in the $300-$500 range. I think I better fix this before I regear and make everything even worse. Help me out guys.

I use powerslot rotors and ceramic pads on the front, with my drums in the rear I use ceramic pads. It stops WAYYY better than stock. 4.56 gears and 315/75/16's and 6inch lift on mine
Change the rotors and new pads. You might even get away with resurfacing the old ones and putting new ceramic pads on all 4 wheels
I think NAPA sells lifetime ceramic pads and resurfaces rotors for like 20 bucks. I don't think you need to replace the calipers- that could get expensive

big rotor kit. New oversized rotors, uses stock calipers but supplies new caliper bracket to accomodate larger rotors.

I've got stock diameter rotors but there cross drilled & slotted. They're Aimco brand, picked them up at carquest last year.
