Ford Excursion : Brake Eater

Just put front brakes on our 200 Ford Excursion for what I think is the 5th time in 140k miles.

That’s 28k per set.   I know it’s had all (4) wheels done twice, just the fronts twice, (now 3x).

That heavy behemoth just eats brakes.  Best part was, it went pretty smooth, I don’t think I cussed once.

We’ll see how the $77 NAPA Ceramic pads do.  We’ve had issues with non-Ford pads in the past…  The brakes just get bound up every now and then and will pull hard (generally to the left, but not always) under hard braking.   Usually falling back to Ford brakes took care of this.

We’ll see.
