Brake pad replacement

753 5
I have just at 79,000 miles on my truck and was wondering is it ok to just replace the brake pads or do I need to get new rotors too? my brakes dont squeak just a little difficult to come to a stop sometimes

Rotors are so cheap and easy to replace might as well replace them while the caliper is off.
:lol: I wouldn't say cheap...

At 80,000 miles, if you haven't replaced the rotors, it's time...especially with big rims. Buy a brake micrometer, they are cheap, and it will tell you if you do or don't need to replace the rotors.

It depends on what brand you go with...for the NBS...

...for the front...cheap rotors = $30, most quality stuff = $50+
...for the rear...cheap rotors = $70, most quality stuff = $100+

Cheap being, the cheapest you can get from your local napa, aap, o'reileys, etc.. Quality being trusted name brand stuff. The "performance" stuff is $$$ for the NBS.
