    So I've been researching brakes on here and just need a straight up answer for replacing:
    Rotors, pads, drums, and shoes. I just want to stop. My two setups for the front i was looking into are the powerstop kit not the drilled and slotted, just the blanks and brakebest selects from oreilly. As far as the rear goes I'm not sure other then the brake best drums from oreilly also.

    Thanks.

    So those will just replace the OEMs right? Because they have good reviews and aren't pricey at all

    OE quality has been great to me. 50K and still some good life left in them. My next set of brake pads will be EBC yellow kevlar material brake pads. :thumbsup:

    MY original OEM pads lasted 5 years...... so I put OEM pads back in. Had my rotors turned also.

    Haven't done anything with the rear - plenty of life left after 8 years.

    This is my usual go to for brakes on a normal vehicle. However I've been noticing more and more Brembo rotors with Made in China printed on the box. A good alternative if you want a Japanese disc is to buy Mountain rotors. They are sold through many parts stores as well as World Pac, so most auto parts stores will stock them, or have them available.

    Akebono makes great pads in my experience. Nissin also makes great brake pads. I've used them on a lot of Hondas and that's what I buy for my motorcycle.

    I try to avoid Chinese components as much as possible, even though many items on my truck came from the factory with them.

    subbed.

    I have gotten 70k miles and counting on my front pads, still at half wear. I think Ill go OEM again but the pads last time I checked were 80bucks or some ridiculous amount.

    Raybestos makes good stuff. I bought a master cylinder from them for my other car and 50k miles later, not one issue :thumbsup:

    I've always used Raybestos. But my local parts store doesn't have Raybestos any more they just switched to Perfect Stop. Never heard of them...

    A few OE parts from fancy trucks
    In the Spec Miata world (track racing, but with OE style parts) running NAPA rotors is quite common. ~$20 and made by Brembro. Pad choice (composition) is up to the driver, but still OE size of course. Many folks who don't run Spec Miatas, but participate in HPDEs on the same tracks, use the NAPA rotors and just change pads for the event, replacing them with street pads after their lapping sessions/driving school.

    No track pad is appropriate for a street vehicle, much less a street truck. If your OE pads have worn well and met your stopping needs, go with them.

    www.stoptech.com has some good reading on braking myths and concepts if you want to hone up a bit. Not suggesting you want or need their products, but the tech articles are good...........
