    EBC brake pads....worth it?

    I'm looking at getting a set of EBC greenstuff brake pads. I'm just wondering if they are worth it. I don't think I need the yellowstuff pads.

    They will be going on my 2005 Dodge 3500 4x4. Its on 35's and I tow my jeep quite a bit in the summer time with it.

    I'm wondering if anyone has used them, what your impressions of them is and if you think they are worth the $$$$.

    We've put them on a few WJ's with the slotted EBC rotors and it's huge inprovement over the stock WJ crap brakes. I'll probably use these on my XJ when it's due for brakes.

    I run the green stuff front and rear on my TJ. On my 05 Durango, I have yellow stuff front and green stuff on the rear. Are they worth it? Heck yes! The greenstuff pads are quiet (after the initial bedding is done) and are a large improvement in stopping ability over the stock pads. I wish I would have went with the yellowstuff on the front of the TJ, but oh well.

    The stock brakes on my durango were so-so. After the upgrade, they grab and stop so much better now. I'm a firm believer in EBC pads and think they're a great product. If you go with EBC's, follow the bedding procedure to a "T", or they'll squeal. In addition, EBC does not recommend putting yellowstuff on the rear, unless you use yellowstuff on the front too.

    Since you tow and have a heavy vehicle, my recommendation is yellow on the front and green on the rear. You won't be disappointed.

    ive never heard of them, but as goeff and others know dodge brakes suck, and third gen dodges where way better than the 2nds, i would like to see how good they work on a 3/4 or 1 ton dodge because they always could use more braking power
