Plugs, and brakes

Looking to new plugs and wires, plus brake pads and rotors on my 2011 laramie, anyone have suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Cool

When it comes to brake pads, don't go with Ceramic Pads on a street truck, they are good only for race applications. I use the brand and type spark plugs that come with the truck from Dodge. My application, 5.7 Hemi, doesn't have spark plug wires.

I have ceramic pads on mine. They work just fine. Your truck doesn't have plug wires. NGK 5306 plugs are in both my Hemis.

I just put in NGK 5306 plugs in my truck the other day, made a noticeable difference with only 83,000 miles on the originals. I had to put rear brakes in too, went with whatever carquest had for "premium" semi-metallics. I would recommend staying with factory material semi-metallic pads if you aren't also changing the rotors to a performance aftermarket. Ceramics will tend to make undesirable noises with the factory rotors but not on every truck. Very few I've talked to like the ceramics.

Thank you all for the replies! When I did the plugs in my 04, there were 16, is that still the case?

how hard is to change out the plugs on the rams now? My 07 Durango wasn't to bad and my Commander took me 2 hours but looking under the hood of this 2011 ram I don't think that I am going to like doing this all that much.

I used these brakes, they work great. Cermanic Pads work great, no noise.

These are much better than stock. No Dust, No Noise, stopping power is vastly improved.
