Default Brake Motive

I was very skeptical buying from an eBay store at 1st.. But, after installing these slotted/drilled rotors, I was amazed. 100% better in over all handling and braking.

I started off with the company's ultimate set.. which included; all 4 rotors, their best pads, and the clips. Shipping only took 2 days to my house and it was free. So, let the pics tell the story.


From the pic, you can see a hint of red from the front sway bar end link. Went ahead and upgraded to Energy Suspension's red bushings for the sway bar. When I started the whole brake install, I noticed my upper ball joints look pretty bad. So, it was off to buy all new A arms... since Chrysler thought it was funny to have the ball joint as part of the whole assy.

All that was left at this point, was to follow the break in process. Once again, I highly recommend spending the money and picking up this kit.

I agree, put them on my Ram and my 2005 RT Magnum. Stop great, no squealing, no warping. Resist rust pretty well, too. All you need now, rear Helwig sway bar and Rancho 9000 shocks!

I put those on my last Ram (2012 Crew Cab Express-1500) and I loved them.
I'll be doing the same when my current truck (2015 Big Horn CC-1500) needs them.

Rancho 9000 shocks? My experience with Rancho parts has been bad. The Rancho 9000's I put on my last truck lasted about 25k miles before they failed. The stock shocks I replaced preformed better at 130K miles than the Ranchos did from day one. The first Rancho product I used was 30 years ago and the last was the 9000's. I would never use Rancho anything again.I replaced the Ranchos with Bilsteins and I've been a fan of there shocks every since.

The sway bar sounds like a good idea that I would like to do also.

Update; Truck has already gone 2k miles and still no issues... nor any brake dust. I'm very pleased with the product. Oh yeah, and no signs of rust either! big major plus.

Nice to see a positive review.

I picked a full set up as well and should be getting around to fitting them later this week.

Yeah I got a buddy who put Ranchos on his Titan and when I mentioned I was getting Bilsteins he said he regretted not doing the same.

Just finished installing mine and have to say first impressions are very good. Quiet, smooth and much better stopping power than the OEM rotors and pads.
