I'm thinking of upgrading to drilled slotted rotors. If I do what are the pros and cons to doing this, and are they a certain brake pad I need to install to get the use out of my rotors??? Discuss please!!! Sorry if this has already been brought up.

EBC yellow stuff pads.

Great cold and hot, never experienced fade of any sort.

Only downfall, they throw off some dust.......but I wash my truck often enough

I have Wagner Thermoquiet's and love them I had EBC's on my last car and went from them to the Wagner's and absolutely love them. Got a lifetime warranty at my local parts store so for 60 bucks I'll never buy pads again and can put news ones on anytime I want to.

Yep also a good brand. I use to have them on mine before I upgraded to 09 calipers. The wagners carry a lifetime warranty for the time you own the truck so you can't really beat them.

Another option is dimpled rotors instead of drilled. They will also remove the gasses that build up from heavy braking like drilled but won't develop stress cracks liked drilled do sometimes. I got mine from here Brake Rotors Brake Discs Drilled Slotted Rotors as for pads there are a lot of choices and opinions. There is brand and material differences. I'm sure some one will come back and say I'm wrong but most everybody has one. I used semi metallic pads. Ceramic will produce less brake dust but semi metallic will stop better. So research it yourself and make your own choice.

Drilled rotors tend to crack, I won't buy em.
Slotted rotors I've had a couple different sets now... skip the ATE (star like pattern)
I've had both semi metallic and ceramics... the ceramics will out perform the metallics but take more force during the first couple stops to warm them up.

I have "HAWK" carbon break pads and I give them a :thumbup:
I have about 50,000 miles on my "BEAR" slotted and cross drilled rotors. No issues at all. :shrug: They came with a 50,000 mile warranty. I bought them at www.stylintrucks.com
