I have had no pulsing or warped rotor problems with my '99 SCAB 2WD. This week I did fry one of my front rotors due to a pad hanging up from rusty slide pins on a very busy street. I had to limp almost 2 miles until I found a safe place to pull over. While slide pins have been known to hang up pads, Mine was because my truck sat almost all winter with very limited use. My truck has just over 100K miles and is over 13 years old. I won't hold this latest problem against it.

I have 430 gears in my truck and I celebrate when I get 12 MPG!

My E99 F350 PSD has 190K miles and while I had to recently rebuild the fron brakes due to the pads worn out (turned the rotors and replaced the pads) I have never had trouble stopping or experienced any pulsing.

When I replaced the pad I had to take the old ones in to help the counter guy find the right replacements. Turned out to be the same as model 2000 truck.

The idea of heavier brakes appeals to me. I see lots of aftermarket brakes in magazines and on ebay.

I will watch this thread to see how it comes. out.
