Default Brake Recommendation

Hi, I'm getting pretty violent vibration on a new (to me) 2002 Dodge Ram 1500 sport 4x4.

I tow a boat on occasion and would like something that would give me better braking than stock.

What is the best bang for my buck and where should I buy? I'm thinking new front and rear rotors pads and stainless steel lines.

Is that overkill? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I'd check Rockauto.com, that is where I buy most of my brake stuff. I've never had to change brakes on my Ram yet, but in the past, I normally go with standard rotors and ceramic pads; slotted and drilled rotors aren't worth the money to the average driver, even if towing a boat. Try to stick with American brands, you will be good!

Power Stop Rotors
Hawk HPS Pads
Crown brake lines

Bleed your system with new fluid and be happy with better braking for the next 60k without breaking the bank.

Depending on the boat weight and the boat trailer, you might look at a different or better braking system for the boat trailer also.

Default How about these?

I've looked on the internet, but keep on coming back to eBay. Anyone purchased from this seller before?
