    Ok, I really have searched....a lot....and I just can't find what I'm looking for. My truck is very much a "city" truck. No offroading...no towing...I drive like a grandpa. It's one of those drive back and forth to work and haul the occasional furniture or load of mulch. You know the type. I don't need "performance" brake pads. I simply want standard OEM pads that will not wear out my existing rotors (as they are in GREAT shape) but I don't want to pay the exorbitant dealer prices for parts. Suggestions?

    Well...I've not priced them yet (will in the morning) at the dealer. I was just basing that opinion for everything else that I've ever priced at the dealer. So, I guess that was some "pre-judging" on my part. I'll give the dealer a chance for my business, but I wasn't hopeful. I was hoping to have a good base of what else is out there (in local parts stores) before I asked them. I mean, I see the prices on the stuff at places like O'Reilly's, Autozone, Advance, etc. but I don't know who even makes them and what quality they are.
