    Hello Everyone,

    I'am looking for suggestions on what the best brake pads and rotors I should purchase on my 2002 Eddie Baur Expedition. I do use my truck to pull a 6000 lb. boat w/ brake system on trailer. I hate the original brakes that seem to produce alot of brake dust all over the rims especially the fronts. Thanks for the help!

    if your getting brake dust then you don't have the original pads... as they were ceramic and don't produce dust...

    i use power stop drilled and slotted rotors with evolution ceramic pads on all four corners and i can stop extremely fast.. and everything was $200 shipped to my door...

    i also pull a boat with surge brakes as well as a 4 place sled trailer in the winter and have had no issues with warping or cracking and no brake fade what so ever, i have to watch those stupid tail gaters cause i can stop faster than most other cars..
