Im in need of getting new brakes and rotors for my 2wd. Im wondering if its to much for these rotors and brake pads. Also how hard is it to change out the rotors some say its a pain on 4wd but what about 2wd?

heres the rotors and brake pads Im lookin at. I want to get the premium semi metallic brake pads for 40 dollars.

I just did this on my 4wd last week and it was easy but I used a press to get the hub and rotors apart. Dont know how the 2wd trucks are though.

My buddy has a big 50 ton press in his shop. You can use a hammer and bolt or socket too but a press is just easier.

I used to run through the Semi-metalic pads in about a year and then I found a set of Performance Friction Carbon Metalic pads with a vent and i will say I can tell a big difference I have been running them for about a year now and they are only about a mm thinner. They cost me about $65 at Oreilly with my dealer dicount. I think they are about $90 without it.
