    Hey guys i've never replaced pads on my truck before so i'm clueless as to what type of break pad would provide me with better breaking and less break dust than the stock pads.. any input is appreciated. Thank you in advance. :)

    I had 100k on the originals and just changed the pads. I used OEM why argue? they stop fine and wear good. I only changed to originals because 100k was a long way to go but I still had %25 left. I am hoping for another 100k out of this set.

    I agree, the original brake pads are usually the way to go. I've changed lots of pad / rotors, and the difference between aftermarket, and factory pads can be quite drastic. This has some effect on the electronic brakeforce distribution, as it will not know that the pads are different, and might not operate as efficiently.

    Bought my truck used with 37k on it and don't know if the pads were replaced prior to my purchase. One thing for sure, my rotors have some vibration to them.

    Also, has anyone notice the clatter from their pads? Very noticable when you come to your first "forward" stop after applying the brakes when backing up. It's funny, my friend's '07 Taco does the exact same thing.
