Looking to replace my front rotors and brake pads this fall (and do the rear in the spring). Thoughts on this set?

Never heard of them. Back in the day when I worked as an alignment and brakes apprentice, we used Wagner, Raybestos, Bendix or OEM. We always had good reviews from customers.

I did get a quote from a stealership on OEM front pads and rotors (just under $500) and will call a couple other dealers tomorrow for quotes. My front pads/rotors have nearly 80k on them so I'm pleased with that, and am confident they'll be fine a while longer. I may make it to 100k. But they are pricey compared to other sets like the eBay listing I posted.

I've also heard NAPA sells a good pad/rotor, so I found the part numbers on their website and will call their local store tomorrow and see what the set would cost.

I have a set of EBC slotted rotors on my black truck with Hawk pads. Way better than stock with less brake dust.

I work at Ford dealer in Edmonton and full retail after taxes is only $380.00 so needless to say you are getting hosed! other then going to OE pads and rotors...do something with Stoptech or Hawk...but you still be looking at close to the same price!

Anyone in Calgary need some XLT take off mirrors? I put the tow mirrors on mine forever ago and these are collecting dust.

Wondering if anyone can help me. Im thinking about upgrading my 2012 to a 2014 with nav, tow mirrors and back up camera. Im sick of getting out of my truck half a dozen times to connect a trailer.

what are the best dealers to deal with in Edmonton. Im on cold lake, so dont want to waste too much time. I ended up buying my last one in St Paul, but im sure i could get a better deal down in edmonton.

First off, I'd tell you don't do it lol. I upgraded 2 years after and the extra payments suck. But if you don't mind then all the power to you.
I had Sherwood Ford and Kentwood Ford compete for my business and I did the same for my friend. Both times, Kentwood gave us deals we couldn't refuse. Our trucks MSRP'd for 58k and 57k respectively. I got my 12' for 41500 and he got his 13' for 40500...send me a PM and I can introduce you to the salesman that sold us our trucks. He will work hard to get you a solid deal.

Sherwood beat everyone... including Kentwood on 2 trucks I dealt on this year. My xlt was an unbelievable deal and my mom's 14 fx4 wasn't getting beaten either. That said.... never go back after buying as its a waste of time lol. I wouldn't take my wheelbarrow to the idiots at Zarowny. ... and Douche bag motors in Bonnyville along with Cold Lake Ford are too out of touch to even be bothered with. My xlts sticker was 47500 and I paid 29950 before tax or 32k out the door. 14 FX4 was 61300 and it came down to 43300 before tax... or 46k out the door. The xlt is 38% off sticker and the fx4 is just under 30% off.

I could refer you to my sales guy too.... not that it matters as I have yet to get the $750 referral I was promised for my mother's truck... so I really don't care.
