New Rotors Brake Shoes

Once we got the truck up on jackstands, we noticed deep grooves in the front rotors, and almost no brake pad left through the side window. We wanted to upgrade the braking to better bring the trailer to a stop, but didn't want to live with any squealing day-to-day. So we went with Hawk Performance High Performance Street pads for a 20-to 40-percent increase in stopping and increased resistance to brake fade. The rotors were way under-spec, so we went with higher-end Centric brake rotors from Napa with a lifetime warranty.
