Going to Summit Racing tom. need opinions!

Nothing crazy exciting, but I need some rotors and pads. I have searched the forum, but still have a couple questions. A couple people are running these Power Stop AR-8554SL - Power Stop Brake Rotors - Overview - SummitRacing.com I'm leaning towards these. I have 1 question though, what is the deal with the ABS ring? Is it easy to swap to the new rotor? Or does it already have them on the rotors?

The pads I'm thinking of using are these Power Stop Z36-652 - Power Stop Z36 Series Extreme Truck and Towing Brake Pads - Overview - SummitRacing.com
I tow a landscaping trailer about 6 days a week and thought these would work for my situation, but I don't want a whole lot of brake dust, and it says nothing about that. Anybody know if these are good pads?

Let me know what you'd recommend!


Thanks,
Clay

also, your truck is a 4x4, no need to worry about the ABS ring. your abs sensor is built into the bearing/ hub assembly.

I'd buy both! After the dunes I might have to pick those up.

Well the Power stop slotted rotors were out of stock... I was pretty bummed, but I need my brakes replaced badly so I got these Summit Racing SUM-DSEP-54035R - Summit Racing® Extreme Performance Cross-Drilled and Slotted Brake Rotors - Overview - SummitRacing.com They only had 3 different rotors in stock and these were the least expensive ones, so I got them. I've heard good things and bad things about the drilled rotors, so we'll see.
