Rotors and pads came from Brake Performance. Awesome company to work with. OEM sized, so I had no issues.

Thanks

Thanks for taking time to do this with the pics and write up. Excellent job of explaining how to use the disc brake be quiet stuff. All my years of working on cars and I have never known how to use this stuff properly! Thanks, gary.

Wow. Nice write-up.

A girl who can work on her own truck, well that's just awesome.

Ok. i followed your instructions on your page since it was my first time. I thought you can install the same rotors on yours, but my front rotors are not as simple as yours. Do certain trim f150's use different rotors? Plus it has a bolt in the middle of the assembly. I think it might be a ABS sensor or something.
