Thanks Tony.

So far I like them on the front. I will be doing the rear brakes soon.

Did you ever have that TSB done to replace the faulty calipers on the front of your '03?

Evidently they're made with some material around the piston that swells with heat and won't let the pistor retract fully when you let up on the brake pedal. That causes the pads to drag overheating the rotors and causing them to warp. I had the TSB done way back when I first got my truck because my rotors warped bad at about 12K miles. The damage was done and no amount of turning them could fix, so I threw on a set of Powerslots and Hawk HPS pads.

Yes I had the TSB done.

My buddy claims it's because I'm 320lbs and it makes the truck harder to stop on the drivers side. There might be some weird truth to that.

I doubt its because of your weight. I mean, it is a truck, its supposed to haul like trailers and other heavy stuff right? I know a trailer is put on the back but would that then mean the back brakes wear out fast? I think you just had some bad luck with sticky calipers.
