My brake pads are signaling so I’m considering Duralast ceramic pads and rotors from Autozone.

I don’t like the dust of OE that I have on now.

Any recommendations? Only fronts are needed.

My driving style is almost all highway so stops are from high speeds.
Thank you.

Duralast gold is what i have on mine. stops good and lower dust. Plus when pads wear down i just go get another pair for free with lifetime warranty.

I've used Duralast Gold and Motorcraft pads on my 2000. The Duralast seems to stop more quickly, the Motorcraft stops smoother and last longer.

I installed Power Stop rotors and brakes on my 2000 and was extremely happy with the results.

I tried those years ago. The rotors warped in 12,000 miles. The first time I hit the brakes I almost went through the windshield but they didn’t last for me.

Just got them on. Feel silky smooth so far. The OE pads I had we’re almost down to bare metal and the rotors were rusted.
Hopefully these Golds will fare better.
