'05-07 Wagner TQ Brake Pad Review

Finally swapped in the rear '05 axle in my truck and needed to do front pads, so I opted for Wagner Thermo Quiet pads front and rear on stock rotors. I'm really impressed with the brake feel and stopping performance considering it's an 8400lb truck on 37" tires. I'm not feeling so technical as to measure stopping distances, but they are an improvement over the stock pads. Feel is very linear, with no surprise grab or lack of initial bite. I've driven them in the extreme wet and snow/ice and they remain nice and predictable. So overall I'm pretty impressed, for a guy who has only previously run OE Motorcraft or Performance Friction in the past because those prove very reliable options.

The Current Truck (Oct-2013 to Present):
1999 (Early) F-350 Lariat, CCLB, SRW, Black/Tan

7.3L Powerstroke, 4R100, 4x4, 3.73, 37x13.50-18s, '05 Axle Swap, 6" Fabtech lift, GTP38 "D66" turbo upgrade, SCT 4-position chip with custom tuning by me, Straight Piped 4" down pipe through 5" dual stacks, N-Fab full length triple steps, Pro-Tech cab guard and tool box, louvered 5th wheel gate, Hella 500 Fog and Driving lamps, much more to come...
The one I'll miss, (Mar-2009 to Jan-2014):
2000 Excursion XLT 4x4

6.8L V-10, 4R100, 4.30, 285/75-18, 271whp / 388wtq
The one I won't, (Jul-2005 to Sep-2012):
2005 F-350 XLT, CCLB, SRW, 4x4 FX4
