I used the Posi Quiet Ones with Drilled slotted rotors from Disc Brake Rotors & Pads | R1Concepts.com.
Seemed like a very good upgrade from stock. Willie (mrmanners) is a dealer through them.

anyone ever tried the EBC pads either the green or the yellow pads? the green pads are supposed to eliminate 90% of brake dust on the rims. Their rotors are warrantied against warping for life.

Quick question. I have a '05 I bought in '07 with 44,000 miles. I currently have 88,000 miles and was wondering how long the brake pads last. I don't tow anything except on very rare occassions. I do drive in the city everyday. I have no squeals and the last time the truck was on a rack the pads looked like they still had lots of life left. I don't know if the previous owner or dealership changed the brakes so I am trying to gauge how long a stock set will last.
