Hey guys I need your opinion. I have an 05 lade and when I need brakes do all of you guys have the dealer do them or another some well known brake shop. I'm asking because I would like to get the lifetime warranty, but not if the brake shop can not due an great job.

my understanding is that you will have a gm warranty as long as gm parts are used..

and it will depend on how lazy the dealership is, if they want to research records

The new stock ceramic pads last a long time, I used to get 12k to 15k out of a set of pads on my Suburbans, I drive hard, I have 25k on my Escalade and the pads are about 1/2 way gone, I am very pleased. I usually do my own work, and replacing the pads is not that bad a job. :)

I had my fronts done at 47k (got it at 43) and the dealer said they were the original factory pads. That's pretty good wear. :coolgleam
