Default Powerslot brakes and pads...

Are they worth the $20 extra each rotor to get the cryo-treated Powerslot slotted rotors?

And what pads are good ceramics? I've got Midas ceramic pads now, and they've got plenty of meat, but my rotors are warped... so new pads come to.

No complaints about the Raybestos quiet-stops here. I'll probably be replacing them this time next year. I think I'm on year 3 now?

Where'd you get them? Do they come in packs of 2 or 4?

I like the Bendix Ceramics.. CT'* I think.

Seems that once you spend the money for good brakes..it'* all irrelevant as to exactly which brand...they are premium with a premium tag and that'* the basics.

If you were asking Wren.....he only buys things that come in 6 packs.

CT is Ceramic Technology I think.... Bendix.. free replacement pads.. check it out.

If they last as long as the original pads on my truck..they'll never need to replace them. Those babies got changed out at 105,000 miles and still had 1/3 of the pad on them.
