Smile Brake Pads

Getting ready to prep for spring time, and that means pulling the boat with a 8' truck camper in the bed. Nothing like what some of you guys pull, but it is still a heavy load going over the Rocky mountains.


I want to replace the brake pads as I now have about 74k on the truck and I do not trust the OEM stuff to last much longer than this.

We put so much into the suspension and tuners etc on our trucks, what have you guys done for stopping power?

OEM pads is what I went with. Did mine around 74K on the fronts. rears are still good.

You can't beat the OEM pad lasting that long with all the towing.

Check your rotors over good. I actually had one cracked.

Have to agree with Scott here. I changed my factory Excursion pads, which are identical to the Super Duty pads, with 113,000 miles on the odometer and dubious maintenance by the PO. I went with Wagner Severe Duty pads, and have been disappointed at the brake feel and stopping power. It's not that they're bad or anything, but I liked the feel of the stock pads better.

If I had it to do over again I would have installed genuine Motorcraft pads and called it a day.

OEM is fine. If you need more stopping power Go with the EBC Greenstuff.

OEM is what I went with last summer. When I pulled the pads, there were still about half of the pad left at 75k or so. I do want to say, be aware that there are 2 different weights of brake pads for our trucks. There is a BR and then there is a SDBR on the part number. I ordered the SDBR and they sent BR, It had way less meat than what was on my trucks old pads, so I called and they sent me the SDBR. Wow, heavier, meatier and just all around looked to be for a Super Duty.
I called Dieselfiltersonline.com and they had the best prices on OEM pads. Since I buy my filters there, I knew they had fast shipping and easy to work with if there is a problem.

I had 100K on mine. I wouldn't have needed brakework then had my caliper slides not frozen up on my right front corner.

I changed mine at 72000, not because they were worn out, but for a common reason: frozen caliper slider pins. Had one on the right rear. I used factory pads and am glad I did. I almost went through the windshield the first time I used them after doing so. What a difference new pads all around made in stopping power. Had forgotten that feel from brand new.
