I am about ready to change my break pads for the first time. I do alot of towing of trailers, ie: toy hauler, horse trailer and hay trailer. Is there a difference in break pads or will any type do from the auto parts store.

I like Hawk pads, but have heard good things about SSBC, and Akebono.

i pretty much always run wagner extreme stopping duty break pads, never had a issue with them, on this truck my old dodge, or when i was drivin half tons
best part is when you wear them out they give you a new set no charge.

How do you know when you need new brake pads? is there a light that comes on in the dash? Or do you hear scaping noise? What?

TIA

There's a metal rub strip installed on brake pads that will emit a screeching noise when it wears through. You can also check on them anytime you have the wheel off by looking at it through the rotor

I run the Posi Quiets as well....They do very good for little to no brake dust build up.
