Unhappy Time for brakes. Recommendations?

So it's almost time for the ranger to get some new brakes on the front again. I think I'm gunna get EBC greenstuff 6000 pads, but I'm undecided on rotors. The stockers have a little bit of a wobble to them so I'm thinking they are a little bit warped. I tow a bit with the truck and want to try some slotted (not drilled and slotted) rotors. I'm looking at something like this: http://www.autopartsway.ca/acp/index...SC80~PT1974670

I think they might be a tad pricey though. Anyone have any other suggestions. I haven't bothered phoning my local lordco, I know their prices are going to be ridiculous. Any suggestions/comments on rotors or pads welcome.

Thanks guys.

Get some quality OEM front brakes and do the swap to rear disc brakes. IMO it would be better money spent and it would help a lot in the towing dep't. Any time you go with slotted or drilled rotors it tends to eat your pads faster. 'ploder brakes will bolt right on to your 8.8 btw. LR

I have OEM brakes on the front. They suck. And jeepers the dust. I've considered a rear disc swap but don't really want to go through it. Also FYI exploder brakes won't bolt up to my 28 spline 8.8 . They will however bolt up to your 31 spline 8.8 . Plus I'm still under partial warranty, I dunno I just don't really want the hassle of a rear disc swap right now.

I have been using power slot rotors from www.frozenrotors.com for the last couple of years along with Hawk hps pads the difference is like night and day from OEM

What about that cryo treating I keep seeing? Worth a look or a waste of money

Definitely yes if it's in your budget they are a little more costly but you do pay for what you get
