Default Brake Recomendations

I performed a search and found some recommendations, but none from the last 2 years. I'm about to do my front and rear pads and rotors. I priced at Sewell's and got approx 500 for the rotors, pads, shims, installation kit. Any good non-oem recommendations based on experience? I'm not looking to go the ebay route and want a good setup for the truck for less than OEM. Thanks!

I went with tirerack.com ...

For about $440 shipped, i got everything for front and rear.

Front:
Brembo Blank Rotors
Hawk LTS Pads (great pads)

Rear:
Brembo Blank Rotors
Centric Posi Quiet Pads


Very happy with these brakes and the performance of the brake system. It sure feels better than any OEM pads i had on before. And the Brembo rotors are pretty high quality. Had them on many cars.

my 2 cents...

When the time comes, my truck is getting Akebono pads. They're about $45 on amazon. Unless your rotors are below minimum thickness, you can have a NAPA or CarQuest machine them. I think they do them for about $20/ea.

Thanks Dan! I was on tirerack myself earlier and saw mixed reviews. I'll probably go for a similar setup then. It could have been pads that lead to this conclusion. Did you just reuse the shims?

I ended up trying cryo rotors in the front since they are supposed to help with warping, which my current ones are.

Thanks Blackcat, that's good to know in the future. I currently actually need new rotors based on the current condition from the previous owner. In the future though, I will be going that route.
