Spent some time in the garage working on the brakes this week. The old pads didn't have much life left and I wanted to change them before winter hit. I chose the 7000 pads to help when plowing. I like blank rotors better than slotted or drilled.

I cleaned everything well, painted the calipers with VHT caliper spray paint, and lubed everything with Permatex ceramic extreme lube (purple). Talk about colors! I flushed and blead the lines with freash fluid. It was looking nasty after a few years. I swapped out the wheels for fall. LOL

Now I have to brake easy for 200 miles before they are fully bedded. I went for a long drive today. So far so good.

How have the upgraded brake pads been working out for you? Did it help with the soft pedal feel these trucks have?

My pedal has never been soft. Under normal driving I notice more bite than the old setup. I have yet to slam on the brakes or fully bed them as per EBC's instructions.

Bedding in the pads properly will change how they stop by a good margin. I would recommend following their procedure when you get a chance.
