It's about time for me to put new brakes on my truck. What is a good quality brand that I can use?
I went to napa and bought their premium brakes. You have to specify that you want their "white box" They came with life time warranty. I also replaced my rotors etc. I haven't had any problems with them. I wouldn't get their lower end brakes though. My b/f used to work there so he knew what to get.
I use Raybestos Brute Stop (BS52M) and have had good luck with them. On my s10 the almost work too good (the front lock up befor the rear w/ no load in the bed).
Last time I had my brakes done, the front pads wore out pretty quick, so my mechanic warrantied them, and got them upgraded to "Fleet Grade" pads. I am pretty sure he got them at Napa.
NAPA pads have always worked well for me, but so have the AC Delco from the chevy dealer, there a little more expensive, but they are worth it
Bendix Fleet Duty is what I'm using; i think they're pretty expensive but I got a wicked deal on em.
All the cops and taxi's use these pads up here.
my sky jackers have held up to some serious stops in my suburban, and i haven't had any problems with them. i think a suburban could be harder on lines in a sudden stop than a blazer/jimmy.
