I'm going with wilwood($$$expensive), But wagners will be good in your case.($65) a pair

I put brakebest select on the Harley and they did fine($35) a pair

Just remember the cheaper you go the more brakedust you'll have with less rotor wear(longer rotor life) and less stopping power.

The more you spend the better the stopping power with more rotor wear(due to more metals in the pad)

We offer new brake pad and rotor kits for your truck. The pads are semi metallic to cut down on brake dust and the rotors are brand new not remanufactured.

Here's a link to them on our site, if you have any questions I'd be happy to answer them for you.

Whatever you do don't go cheap! I thought I'd get some low grade pads cause I was low on cash at the time and I wish I had waited.. Every time I hit the brakes they squeal and they never did with the old ones.. I'm thinking about ceramic pads... anybody use them before?
