Guys-I just ordered front and rear Raybestos PG Plus Premium Semi-Metallic pads from Rock-Auto for $19.99 a set. Shipping was $9. It's a close-out sale, if you're looking for pads, these are great and an awesome price. I was going to pay $55 for a set locally.:woot:

That is a pretty good price. I'm keeping an eye out for a reasonable set of ceramics to eventually do mine. It'll be awhile before mine are due, but always gotta watch for the deals.

Good find

Went to put my new pads on the other day and the ones that were on it were still about 65%. I couldn't believe it since we had a low pedal on the truck I thought they'd be down quite a bit. It turns out when I went to have the rotors turned, they were below the minumum thickness. Whoever had the truck before me had someone turn them too low. So I had to put on new rotors also.
Stopped great after that. BUT. The next day I had to make a hard emergency stop and then smelled hot brake after that. I pulled into the gas station and the passenger side caliper was sticking.:hissy: Not hard, but dragging. I think since the rotors were so thin, the pistons/seals in the caliper were used to being too far out. I have new ones on order, also from Rock Auto. $50 ea. for reman Raybestos. Hope to have them tomorrow. I also will have to sand down the glaze on that passenger side rotor/pads.

Anyone else ever had caliper issues on these trucks? Seems soon since it's an '04 and only has 46k on it.

I just got the Premium ceramic pads they had on "special" about 2 weeks ago, plus there was a rebate...the pads ran me $30 a set for the fronts, minus a Raybestos $8.50 rebate = $21.50.

Always click the "Promotions & Rebates" button at the top right of their web pages....save some $$. :yes:

(but stay away from the Fram one....junk oil filters :nono:)
