i would go regular unless you do a lot of hauling. i had a set of ceramic pads glaze over on me and they were not worth a shi# if you ask me

If he had to do both bearings, that can get quite expensive. I just had mine done.. Was a little over $1000.. Over $800 in the bearings themselves if I remember right..

Mind if I ask what the cost was on the bearings? Roughly.. Cause I had mine done, and I'm a 4x4 as well.. And well, as mentioned above, it wasn't cheap..
