no, I don't ride brakes, however, the engine/gerabox only goes so far in some of the very steep hills we have here in SW Montana, so need to use braking, but I don't ride them, I slow down a fair bit then let the engine/gearbox take over again until the speed builds up too much, then brake again, and so onDo you ride the brakes going down mountains or do you use a lower gear and let the engine slow the speed? Normal driving should not cause any sort of overheating.
I am open to suggestions as to why then my steering wheel and truck starts vibrating after I have used the brakes a few times on steep hills, I am assuming it has to do with the brakes. As I indicated in my post, once I am back on flat roads, this vibration very quickly goes away.stock brakes are pretty amazing on these late model trucks.
i have a hard time thinking youre heating them up that much
no towing these days, although when we had an RV, it behaved the same back then.How are they getting this hot? Are you towing heavy in the mountains?
what do you mean by factory performance brakes.....Factory performance brakes.
