Has anyone installed a set of cross-drilled rotors in place of the factory rotors? Im going to order a set for the front and just want to hear any input anyone has to offer... :

i had gotten a brand new set off ebay a while back for $50 delivered. hell even a std. rotor from pepboys was $65 for one. but i havent put them on yet. in the next couple of weeks ill be tearing apart the truck suspension to paint it and the frame cobalt blue metallic and will install them after painting is done. ive had to replace my back brakes(they were down to the rivet @ 20k miles, fronts are still like new). hey Jason, since you've had to replace a caliper, what size is the allen bolt that holds it on?
Pads & Shoes
Special Carbon Kevlar integrally molded Disc Pads and Segmented Brake Shoes. The latest technology now allows us to provide segmented Pads and Shoes! Heat cured to remove air pockets from the compressed friction material to eliminate brake noise and provide unsurpassed heat transfer. Utilizing Carbon Kevlar technology, the fiber strands in conjunction with metal particles combine to absorb vibration, a leading cause of brake noise. Allowing faster heat dissipation, a major cause of warped and stress cracked rotors. Quicker heat dissipation means less fade and less pedal pressure, which in turns results in less pad and rotor wear. The dynamic coefficient actually grips better as the temperature goes up. Our Carbon Kevlar pads and shoes provide unequaled stopping distances for heavy loads and high heat applications. And are the ultimate for heavy towing and load requirements. Available for most all vehicles and trailers as well.

Hawk, Performance Friction.
Hawk are amazing, if you can get them. Performance Friction's Z-Rated are next, then the normal Carbon Metallic.
I'm running the Carbon Metallic and they stop the truck MUCH better than the stock pads or the Raybestos PGPlus pads I previously had.
They take getting used to, though. They brake hard and fast, so you end up jerking the truck until you get a softer foot for putting them on. But if you need to stop NOW, just keep digging into the pedal, and they'll bring you down to a stop FAST.
