Anyone know why bendix stopped making metal kings?

They use to work almost as good as the ford breaks.

The titanium strip breaks are a POS. They are the apprent replacements for metal kings.
The supercheap auto brand of breaks work better and cost half the price.

Anyone know of a decent 3rd party brand of break that doesn't cost the world and works almost as good as the genuine ford breaks?

Brakes.

EBC will meet your expectations when it comes to pad replacement.

I have QFM HPX pads on both my XR6s, and they perform extremely well at reasonable cost. I switched from EBC Redstuff (front) and Greenstuff (rear) on my EF, and won't be going back. The QFMs work far better on my cars and are much cheaper. I buy them here:
