    Had them on my last truck. Unless you need new rotors, its not something worth upgrading to.

    Yes , I do need new rotors. I have almost 82,000 miles on the stock brakes, both pads and rotors. 4wheelparts has a good sale on the powerstop brake set , pads and rotors heavy duty ones for $225.00

    I've used power stop on another vehicle and liked them. Btw from what I've been told at the track, rotors are rotors. What pads are you thinking about getting?
