Looks pretty straight forward. Some boards are saying change the rotors at the same time as pads? One person said his rotors were undersized from the factory? any Particular brand of pads to use?

Any other gotchas?

Thanks

Jesse,

I can't speak about any gotcha's but I have yet to hear anything bad about the Mopar pads that come on the truck. I know of alot guys that are getting about 100K out of the first pair. When it's time for me to replace mine I think I'm going to go right back with the Mopar pads.

Good luck!

my 04 2500 just had it's rotors worked on. Pads were still over 80%. I have 55K on them, not much towing. My dad as an 04 as well and his are just fine. But I think that's due to the air brakes he installed.

On my GMC I use Raybestos pads, I put new rotors on at 130k only after warping the factory ones. Last time I upgraded my rotors to the high performance(better metal) after warping a brand new set of std rotors. Going down hill at Tejon can heat up your rotors and warp them quite quickly.
