2012 Overland Brakes

I posted this in another forum not realizing there was a brake forum. Maybe I can get more help here. What is a good aftermarket replacement for front and rear rotors and pads?
Why do Grand Cherokee brakes shudder when they get hot. This is my second Grand and they both do it. I know the rotors warp when they get hot but thats only when they are thin but my Overland only has 36,000 miles. I'm sure if I have them turned it will still happen. What can I do?

Re: 2012 Overland Brakes

I can't help you with your question, but I'm at 42K miles and my brakes are barely worn. If you are consistently going through brakes you may want to try and figure out the "why" since it's an expensive maintenance thing.

Re: 2012 Overland Brakes

interesting...I'm at 47k on my '11 overland and mine still feel like the day I picked it up when new. There doesn't seem to be too many issues relating to brakes with the wk2 but you may want to search.

My 2012 overland with 35k does the same so I went to the dealer and told me the rotors need to be ported and the pads must be changed so it is gonna be done this Wednesday hopefully this will fix this shuddering problem

Re: 2012 Overland Brakes

Wish mine did that before the warranty ran out.

Re: 2012 Overland Brakes

Rotors can warp at anytime... whether due to poor material, riding the brakes a lot or applying aggressive braking.

Since rotors and pads are considered normal wear maintenance items they most likely won't be covered under warranty. Just ask any owner of a 93-02 Grand Cherokee and find out what kind of success they've had with that.

Re: 2012 Overland Brakes

Plain and simple...the brakes suck on Grand Cherokees... and so do the shocks... you can't even buy aftermarket shocks for the quadra lift... and they are back ordered more than 700 ... 36,900 miles and I have to put all this money into it...not to mention the oil leak... Not happy...

Re: 2012 Overland Brakes

I heard it suggested that holding the brake pedal down after getting the brakes particularly hot can result in warping due to "hot spotting"?

Once I have braked to a rest, I try to avoid clamping the rotors any harder than necessary to stop the car moving... and use the park (emergency) brake to hold the car after high load braking such as when towing, long declines and high speed stops. This is another reason to hate the foot operated park (emergency) brake.

Cheers,
Steve

Re: 2012 Overland Brakes

I've noticed that a lot of people ride their brakes all the way to a complete stop. That's something I avoid doing. I pump my brakes and don't fully apply them until I actually need to stop. And after stopping I allow the vehicle to creep ahead a foot or so to avoid the hot spotting you describe.

I've only had issues with warped rotors on 2 vehicles... a 69 Charger that had leaky o-rings in the calipers that allowed brake fluid to spill onto the rotors and a 93 JGC that had defective rotors right from the factory.

Re: 2012 Overland Brakes

I have owned many different vehicles and drive them all the same. Never had rotors warp...

Re: 2012 Overland Brakes

Well, you do now.

You stated you have 36K on them. So tell me, what kind of life do you think you should be getting out of them?

Re: 2012 Overland Brakes

Fact of the matter is, a "warped" rotor is quite rare. Usually it is uneven material transfer from pad to rotor. Stop n go traffic is a big contributor. What Barboots is referring to (I believe) is where pad material is unevenly deposited onto the rotor due to the heat after a brisk stop. Best bet is to perform a re bedding process of the pads and you should be good.
It's easier to just post some links than go on and explain the warp/ transfer stuff
