I need brakes on my 02 Supercrew. Any suggestions? I'd like something better than stock without breaking the bank. It has 4 wheel disc and gives way to much feedback to the steering wheel when stopping.

Ford Excursions have terrible rotors because they warp easily. They are such a common problem, there are many, many threads on the different diesel forums regarding them.

My Excursion also suffers from warped rotors.

The most common brake upgrade Excursion owners are doing, is replacing the POS OEM rotors with cryo treated Powerslot rotors, and Hawk LTS brake pads.

There have been quite a few testimonials, by those who tow very heavy loads, who have upgraded to the cryo treated rotors, and are swearing by their performance.

Others have chimed in on the threads that their Powerslots haven't produced the same as the purported claims, but invariably, it's discovered they have the "standard" Powerslots, and not the cryo treated rotors.

My cryo treated Powerslots and Hawk LTS pads arrived just a few days ago. As soon as my buddy gets some time, I plan on swapping out the OEM rotors for these new Powerslots.

If the cryo treated rotors work well for the PSD boys, I'm sure you'd be happy with them on your '02 SCrew.

Thanks Stewart. Where can I get them? Do parts stores stock them or will I have to order?

The best price I could find was at AutoAnything.com because of the free shipping.

But Mark at DPPI http://www.dieselperformanceparts.com came close to the price, but his shipping made him more expensive. But he guarantees the best price (he's a supporting vendor on the diesel forums) so he price matched my deal from AutoAnything.

Being as DPPI is in Nashville, you might wanna check with them after you get a price from the AutoAnything site.

DPPI is a PSD vendor though, so I'm not sure they'd carry rotors for your application. But it can't hurt to check.
