    I say no, just go to local parts house and buy off the shelf, I paid 35 or 40 bucks for the front pads, from CARQUEST, but NAPPA or O'rileys can get you out the door for less money than 140 and they stop fine on my truck, easy to do as well. Good luck

    140 isn't to bad for pads and shoes, I think I paid around 120 when I did mine.

    I changed mine to wagner thermoquiets after the factory pads were done. I can't tell any difference in performance (which is a good thing) but there is virtually no brake dust now. My factory pads were horrible for brake dust. BTW the thermoquiets are made in the USA and I think they have a rebate going on.

    I recommend Brembo Blanks and Hawk pads or Performance Friction. Been seeing some good reviews of PFC (performance Friction) on CT.

    I'm running the Carquest blue labels ( BCD ) they are great, had them for over two years and still have a lot of meat on them and they haven't ate up the rotor.

    I went with ceramic front pads (no clue what brand they were) and new rotors (I never turn them) and after 20k the rotors still have the factory surfacing marks on them. They are great. Super quiet.

    +1 on Brembo blanks and Hawk pads. My OEM rotors were toast so I bought the Brembos and some Hawk LTS pads from Tirerack. HUGE difference in braking ability and distance. Way cheaper than OEM and arguably better.
