brake upgrade, whats the best

looking to upgrade the brakes on my 02 F350 psd long bed.
right now i have a bit of warped rotor wobble in the stering wheel when i press on the brakes.
has anyone installed performance brakes on their one ton?
i read about power slots but they dont make one ton rotors? well they dont show any on the web page.

Good question. Might consider moving this to the Super Duty Forum for a better response. Just an idea.

It seems every discussion on the Superduty forum relating to brake upgrades rave about the ART rotors. If you do a search I'm sure you will find the info you need.

well in the future, next year or two i plan on purchasing a cab over camper, then some day a boat and maybe even a trailer to haul around a couple of sleds or even some wheelers. just preping up right now for future purchases.

i have purchased a set of power slots and hawk pads, read a lot of posts and it seems that they were a good up grade.

if you all did not know this allready, Alaska is not part of the continental United States, the free shipping does not apply to Alaska.

wellin that case i would get some cross drilled or slotted rotors that way the gas from the heat generated will escape easier and not case any fade i would also look into get some bigger rotors and calipers more force and rotor wont heat up as much.

the ones i ordered are slotted,
they are supposed to disapate heat better and prevent warping.
