Interesting. I went with Mopar Premium pads and still have original rotors at 195,000 miles on my 05. Certainly be interested if they stop well and don't leave a black mess. They do look nice! Do you have a tool to collapse the pistons? If the pads don't have an antisqueal coating on the back , get some CRC Disc Brake Quiet.

just did mine the other day. ebc front sport rotors with green 7000 pads. still braking them in but they are awesome.
get yourself a c clamp to compress the pistons. keep your anti vibration taps that fit on the ends of the pads, other then that very easy job to do.

If the rear rotors are hard to get off be sure to back off the drum brake pads.
And be sure to have extra amount of hight temp brake greese. Squeels come from ultrasonic vibrations usually from the rear. Greese the brake slides and as well as coat the backs where the pistons touch.
Easy job all the same.

The drum brakes are for the E-Brake, in case anyone wonders about them

I suggest that you do NOT let the calipers just hang by the brake line hose, use a coat hanger or a short bungee cord, it likely won't hurt the hose, by why take the chance ?









I had my rotors turned at 100,000 miles
Posi-Quiet pads were used, almost every shop, online or local carries them

So install went well. I have absolutely no noise and the stopping is sharp. Minimal brake dust as well!!!!! My wheel covers a lot of the job but if you look you can see the good stuff.
