    I am looking at replacing the front rotors on my 09 F350 SD DRW. I saw some vented, cross drilled rotors that sparked my fancy, but the description calls out only fitting SRW. Really? front rotors are different between SRW and DRW? I have searched threads but didn't see this question.

    Thanks.

    Stay away from anything cross drilled. Brakes work by dissipating heat. Drilling removes material which makes it harder to dissipate the heat. And leads to cracking. My Cobra had cross drilled/slotted rotors when I bought it. I cracked both rotors. If you want blingy get the slotted and zinc washed. But blanks would be the best set up.

    i get the art brake pads and the frozen rotors. never get brake pulsation . and the stopping power is unbelievable. i got my truck brand new and change the brakes out when the truck was new because of brake rotors warping and pulsation
