    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.
