March 21, 2007Hi Folks,
Already had my front pads done at Budget Brake and Muffler about 1 1/2 years ago now and machined the rotors.
I'm now due (according to Ford) for brand new all 4 pads/rotors. I'll be honest, my truck shakes quite "nicely" when braking right now and has for at least 2-3 weeks now.
So here are my current measurements from this morning:
Front: Pads=5mm, Rotors=25mm
Rear: Pads 3mm, Rotors 13.5mm
Ford's minimum rotor thickness is 24.5mm in the front and 12mm in the rear.
Price for the pads: $360 for front pads/rotors, $360 for rear pads/rotors plus good old labor. Total about $1175 (this is a quote).
Anyone know a better deal around...obviously I will be getting a second opinion. They also have "better" Ford Part - not MasterCraft part - Pads which are like $60 more for the pair or each...not sure which one.
