which brake rotors to get

After market? or who makes em for ford? I heard the OEM rear drum in rotor is shot peened for Ebrake's better grip? I need to get new rotors soon, but dont trust the imported stuff. Or is it all from china now? I see nice looking rotors on Ebay, but looks dont mean squat, if the casting has impurities. I do have new OEM pads, for when I do the job.

Re: which brake rotors to get

Everyone else in my family loves warping rotors. Each of them have gotten powerslot rotors as they came due and none of them have warped one since.

They're not unreasonably priced either. I got them at Summit although you can find them most anywhere.

That's my suggestion.

Cryoe'd Powerslot's are definitely the way to go.
