Front Brake Rotors

I'm looking to redo my entire front brakes and bearings. I know I want the Hawk pads, my buddy recommended the ebc rotors but I don't think any are made for the ranger. So I'm looking for something else that will work well without breaking the bank.

I ran power slot rotors on my old 01 and have EBC slotted rotors on my 03 currently. All have been great, ran both rotors with hawk HPS pads on both the 01 and 03.

There's no EBC rotors for the 96 2wd model as far as I can find. Seem pretty pricey for what I want anyways.

I saw ACDelco makes Durastop rotors for my truck, are those any good?

Hawk pads are alright from everything I read, but just to ad my .02 I have always recommended thermo quiets, wonderful pads, I've run wagner rotors for years without priblems.

I noticed you were in orlando..not to be a creep but how far are you from ucf?

My mechanic has the Hawk green something or other (can't remember the name even though I just ordered them) in his truck with the ebc rotors and it stops better than anything else I've been in.

I'll check out those bendix rotors. EDIT - They're only $37 on amazon compared to $62 on Summit, andddd free shipping but they're out of stock. So I think i'm going to get the Centric C-tek or Delco Durastop rotors.

Rangerrunner - I'm out the back door of UCF, like across the street. Do you go there?
