I am going to change my front disc pads this weekend because I need
better stopping power and these have almost 70k on them (original I
I was going to go to NAPA and get their ceramic ones. Are these the best
for stoppping performance?
I also want to keep the stock rotors and not go too wild (read too

If I can use mobile 1, do I need anything specific for the Eaton POS?

Truck is a 2000 Silverado Z71, 5.3l, extended cab and tires are
285/75/R16 if that makes any difference with pads.
Ceramic pads wont help until they are hot, once they are heated up then
they will really grip the rotor.
I don't recommend these for the street unless you're pulling a trailer
down steep grades and need brakes that wont fade. Standard replacement
pads will serve you well.
