My ex has an 04 xl and has had similar issues. Good news is I can change the pads in 15 extra minutes on top of a rotation. Easiest pad change I've ever dealt with.
Brakes have come a long way for ease of replacement in both GM and Ford trucks (not sure about the rest of the guys). If you haven't previously, I would consider some better than stock brake pads......sounds like your driving requirements call for it.

well, now that I "hit it"....
I wanna add iPhone/iPod/mp3 capability to the factory 5 cd disc changer Bose head unit.
There's an AUX button on the unit, but I figure it's for an external CD changer

Need some feedback
I'd be happy with wiring a stereo aux plug and mounting it in dash
similar to this, http://modmyi.com/forums/accessory-r...hone-cool.htmlexcept I'd go with the 3.5 mm mini-pin stereo female jack on the front panel, and (swap to RCA jacks behind the panel if needed) like this http://www.installer.com/item/display_item.php?it=PDM35


seems like it could be done without going to RCA jacks

or perhaps.....

Bluetooth Module for use with the PXAMG or uPAC Interface
http://www.installer.com/item/displa....php?it=ISBT21

or
http://www.installer.com/item/displa...php?it=ISGM575

any ideas?

An idea.....

New Deck with built-in BlueTooth

http://www.crutchfield.com/p_500W235...4#overview-tab

Some bluetooths are good, others are not. I think the sound quality is a gamble. I have an Alpine in my Suburban with Bluetooth and I'd say the quality is better than my wife's Lexus bluetooth. But mine is a little older now so don't know how the newer stuff compares.

If the head unit can accept a CD changer and has input RCA jacks, why not just plug in a cable like this?

Well, my 05 Expedition with only ~83,000 miles is giving me problems again. If I found a deal like Milk got I would "hit it" without hesitation.
