Re: getting new brake pads

I did not know that the link doesnt go straight to them but they are HAWK Ferro Carbon Disc Brake Pads.

1. What do you think of these?

2.Do I need to replace the rotors?

3. Where can I get rear rotors for a F550? ( I found front rotors already)

thanks,
Andrew

Re: getting new brake pads

I had/have them on my truck. I ended up getting the wrong pads(my fault).
I got the heavy duty pads and wore out the front ones in about 15,000 miles.
Front ones now are Raybestos and back are still Hawks. I also put the power slot rotors on.
The truck would stop on a dime with the Hawks but with them being the heavy duty ones they squealed, sounded like a bus stopping.

I would think you should have no problem with the weight of your truck and you do alot of towing with it right?? Besides your truck isnt fast enough to have to worry about stopping with the Hawk pads Just kiddin with ya

Re: getting new brake pads

I have the hawk lts on ft and rear of my truck with stock rotors. So far I'm extremely happy with them no noise and low dust.

the truck has 85k miles

So you think I would be good with the HAWK pads?

Should I replace the rotors also?

How many miles do you have on the rear hawk pads?

I found power slots for the front but couldn't find any for the rears. Where can I get some rotors for the rears?

thanks,
Andrew
