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.
