EBC Orange Towing Pads are AWESOME. Be sure to lube calipers and turn rotors.

You will thank me.

Thought I did by joining the B&W club! LOL

As always folks, Thank you very much for the suggestions. Tire rotation due in 1k miles, so will ask shop to let me see pads. For the 1 reply, looking at just pads/rotors.. I agree I don't think they should be worn down a whole lot, but if for whatever reason they were, trying to get ducks lined up.

What ducks? Is there a shortage of f350 brakes that you’re anticipating?
If you somehow managed to kill your brakes in 30k miles, I’d be very surprised and your ducks would need to include not riding the brakes.
Or spend less time fabricating solutions to problems that likely don’t exist.
However if you’re that curios, pop a wheel off and have a look. May help you sleep better…

I did them all at around 70,000 miles. Pads only as its a waste of money for any of the rest of that stuff unless you ruin a rotor or a caliper sticks. These F-350s have a bad history of seizing up Calipers but mine has 167,000mi on it and just had one seize about a month ago. I use the best pads at Auto Zone because of lifetime warranty. I do my own work and my 1994 Blazer has had free Auto Zone brakes several times over the years.


Well Likely why you see caliper lock ups. Good brake job is replace pads, turn rotors, rebuild calipers, and flush fluid.

No that is a total brake job. A good brake job is to change pads, check and if necessary turn the rotors,inspect and calipers,lubricate sliders,inspect hoses lines and master cylinder.

I betcha your mechanic opens up his new boat catalog every time you call.

I think if you asked for the calipers to be rebuilt you would get the deer in the headlights look.

Are you related to Les Schwabs?
Now I know how they can oversell their brake jobs so handily. People actually believe this stuff…
Pads, 10-4.
Rotors, if needed.
Calipers, when needed.
