Need new/upgraded brakes..which ones??

Im in desperate need for new front and rear brakes, my brakes are about as bad as it gets, so since im getting new ones anyways i might as well get the best ones i can... i need new everything, pads, rotors, and whatever else i can upgrade... will these fit my 03

Wait, yours is an 03, so you have bigger rotors...so no those won't fit.

I'll do some searching.

I just ordered the Power Slot Premium rotors and Hawk Pads today from Jusnes Modified. I'm not sure if they will be a direct swap since you have 12" rotors and 98-02 have 11.28"

yeah as far as i can tell the best thing you can get are some ceramic pads and nice rotors from someone like napa. no one makes upgrades for the 12" rotors yet.

what month was your truck made in 03?

i just got mine at napa and got some stainless steel brake lines made, that made some difference.

i spent 200 at napa and 130 at the brake line shop. the pedal was much better and no more warped rotors.

i have the rotors and pads over a year with over 20k miles on them and they were no wore much at all

Like I said I'm installing them next week so I hope they fit.

i emailed http://www.rotorpros.com/ for an estimate, and they are 258 for the drilled/slotted rotors from www.ebcbrakes.com, i will probly end up buying from one of those places and then pick up some of the hawk pads....

now that i know what i need for the front, what do i do about the rear brakes? just new pads or what?

thats all you can do unless you want to drop the cash for a rear disc conversion.

http://www.ssbrakes.com/products/sea...rd/Ranger/2003

I tried looking but i didnt try too hard. U might be stuck with stock or maybe something slightly better because they are drum type brakes.
