They have been on the truck for about 10k right now and still look brand new. They stop the truck pretty good, alot better then the Ford pads for sure. No squeaks or noises either.

I run the Wagner brake pads from oreillys. They are the best ones I ran so far within a reasonable price.

I ran Ceramics From Big wheel Rossi. I wouldn't personally run motorcraft pads on my truck because they made the wheels black. Every car I have bought from Ford I ended up doind front pads in less than 10K becasue I HATE brake dust. The Expedition got so bad from the Previous owner that the rims are pitted and beyond saving.

powerslot rotors and hawk performance ferro-carbon pads. they ROCK, but they sometimes feel a little gritty after theyve gotten very very hot.
