brake pads on 1/4 ton truck

the 1500 brake pads are dusting like the desert. i can wash the truck and drive it a few miles, come home and write my name in all the dust.

any idea on what to do to get rid of this problem?

i thought about ceramics - but was told that they would destrot the rotors
the autozone lady told me about "semi metallics" when she pulled up nothing for '06 trucks. i asked her what made them different from regular pads - she said they were semi-mettalic

anyway - any idea what to replace the OEM's with?

First don't put anything Autozone sells on your brake system. Raybestos are decent, Wagner used to be (have not used any lately) Bendix is OK. Avoid ANY house branded sh##

Autozone sells Raybestos sheeply. They also sell my cage fluid of choice, Valvoline Syn-whateva.

Yep but that is the premium brand. Not a Autozone brand

Re: brake pads on 1/4 ton truck

Yeah, I agree with you on house branded stuff.

You also have to be careful with the "branded" stuff. Some parts houses sell reman Raybestos and they're garbage.

Re: brake pads on 1/4 ton truck

We're talking about brake pads .

If you want on topic, you shouldn't have bought a Dodge. Dumb ass.

Re: brake pads on 1/4 ton truck

OK, on the topic of materials.

Organic pads always dust more than the metallic ones. So look into some metallics, and see if you can get info on if they tear up rotors in your specific app or not. If they're dusting that much, they will wear quick too. Organics typically have a smooth progression of power, metallics have "bite".

The S2000 gets tons of dust, but I've always figured it was a small price to pay for the brakes on that car. So, unless they're outrageously expensive, I'll be replacing them with OEM when the time comes.

Only if you want your brakes overheating when you need them most. Dust is better than that IMHO.

Many OEM's (especially Ford ... in the past anyway) are using soft pad materials to minimize brake squeel and other noises. Upgrading materials should help stopping and the dust issue.

Re: brake pads on 1/4 ton truck

OEM's should be semi-metallic on most new trucks. Always replace with the same type. Excessive dust might also mean you have a piston hanging so check movement when you have the caliper loose. Oh and this is probably not necessary but don't push the caliper out

And all posts were on the topic of brakes

Don't know about the Dodge, but the dust thing is well known with the F150...so it's not the piston hanging.

Re: brake pads on 1/4 ton truck

I've never owned a truck/car with front discs that didn't dust the hell out of the wheels. Quit whining and drive the thing
