My truck (92 Ford Ranger, rwd) has suffered from brake dust on the front wheels over the past few brake pad replacements. I don't remember it being this bad with the brake pads which were on the front wheels when I bought the truck (rear wheels have drum brakes).
Some time before the end of the year, I am going to replace the front rotors and pads. I want to try an experiment: install 2 different brands of brake pads to see if one performs better than the other, in terms of brake dust. I would probably install 1 "high quality" aftermarket pad, and 1 OEM pad. The rotors would be the same brand.
- Has anyone tried this before?
- Would this cause any problems?
