    I sold a bunch of the ceramic in my shops and still agree with Doubeleive that they are the best for all around braking and longevity.

    So I went with the OEM(AC Delco) PPV semi-metallics instead of the PPV ceramics.......

    They're noisy, produce a sh!t ton of dust.....but stop like a MOFO

    On the rear I used the ceramics

    Of all the vehicles ever owned, this one with its metallic pads puts out the least amount of dust. It's akin to ceramic pads; maybe it's the wheel design or that we keep it washed regularly, IDK. I just know they last a long time and it stops great.

    Coincidentally, saw some posts over at GM-Trucks this morning about Hawks pads, they work great once warmed up, feel normal when colder, great for towing a fella said.

    You look long enough and hard enough and you find that as long as the politicians and government stay out of it, someone always builds a better mouse trap.

    Power stop z37 pads and their vented rotors
    Stops better than anything I have used before.

    I’ll second the Hawk brake pads! They have been the only brand I’ve been using for a few years now.

    NOTE: strongly recommend Bedding in the new pads. Look it up, both with new pads and rotors & new pads and used (still serviceable) rotors.

    Any pad that’s just stuck on the vehicle and then driven without bedding in ruins the contact patch between rotor and pad in my opinion.
