Anyone have suggestions on good brakes to go back with on my 2002 F150? I need rotors and pads, my rotors are done, they've been turned all they can.

Anyone have hook ups at a local parts house?

It will be tough to find good used rotors but it can be done. If the truck is solid visit oreilys and bite the bullet for new rotors. I avoid ceramic pads as they wear the rotors. I use softer pads that won't kill my rotors.

Use chocks and jack stands. Be careful.

Best place for parts is RockAuto.com. Even with shipping, they are lower price than the shoebox auto supplies.

Also check Amazon.com

If it is a 4x4 and you are not familiar with replacing rotors then google lower ball joint repair for F150. There is a guy that did an excellent write up. I printed it all out when I did ball joints on my 2001. I did rotors on my 1997 F150 2wd and it seemed to be a lot easier than the 4x4 but maybe my memory is playing tricks on me.

To the OP: If you want the factory stuff I can hook up with a deal. I work parts at a Ford dealership just let me know.

Its all relative to what you are looking for. Ceramic pads are fine if you're braking habits are fine. All depends on the type of driving you do and your driving habits.
