    so ive had warped rotors since i got my truck used back in may, and after dealing with the stealership to try to get them replaced, and with a whole bunch of BS from them, i was tired of the damn brakes and wheel shaking all the time, so i just got back from advance auto parts with 2 wearever rotors and a set of ceramic wagner quiet brake pads, all totaling about $190, and tomorrow i will have them installed by a local shop for about 90 bucks, FINALLY my brakes will be good!

    You can easily replace them yourself with a good ratchet set and a mallet.

    The jack that came with your truck should work just fine.
