Does anyone know or have ceramic brake pads for their 07 and up yet? I am getting an 07 Expedition next week and it will be one of the first things I want to do. I have had F150's and an Expedition before and swear by the ceramic pad!! Eliminates the brake dust problem Ford is plagued by. Or maybe someone knows if the brake pads on the 07 and up are the same as the newer F150's or 06 and down Expy's.
Now I just found a package deal on Ebay that has brand new slotted and drilled rotors and ceramic pads for Expedition, Navigators and F150's. Just go to Ebay Motors and search for "Expedition Rotor Pads" Seems like a really good deal and the seller has great feedback. I hated the rotors on my 04 F150 they seemed to warp out alot and I was never one to hammer on the brakes or wash after driving a long ways. Maybe this package is the answer.
You don't need Drilled and Slotted. That's only too cool your brakes faster to prevent warpage, and you don't need that going 70mph with an Expedition. The only thing you'll do is eat pads faster with those. Get ceramic pads, but standard rotors if you're after new rotors.
FWIW, the drilled/slotted rotor is not to prevent so-called warping. It is to help dissapate heat faster so that it doesn't transfer to the caliper and therefore the fluid. Hot fluid causes brake fade.
They are indeed overkill for the Expy and only serve as eye candy. Plus, they cannot be resurfaced with a normal machine.
