The brakes took a lot of effort to get the truck to stop even at slower speeds. In thinking about it now, I believe that if the rotors had been turned before then that must have also reduced the stopping capability.

Rotors will get changed next month. Not enough funds at the moment and unable to turn the rotors was unexpected.

so your going to wear the new pads into the old grooves in the old rotors? Thus ruining the new pads?

The old rotors have no grooves in them. These pads will be fine for a couple of weeks until I can spend the dough on new rotors.

Have you torn into the rear brakes yet ?
When (not IF) the adjusters freeze up , you lose a lot of braking capacity.
Pull the rears apart , free up everything , and adjust them up .
You'll notice a big difference in the pedal .

Thanks for the tip. I didn't tear into the rears, yet. I will soon, though. I actually want to replace the brake shoes whether the need to be or not (I'm picky like that).
