2014 brake upgrade help

I've searched, but did not really find what I eas looking for.
If you are better at searching, please feel free to post link/s.

I have a 2014 Overland Hemi. The rotors are in the inital stages of warping. Not bad yet, but it will soon be time to replace rotors, so, regardless of pad wear I will snap those in too.
I'd like to get quality rotors pads... notably North American.
Once upon a time, Raybestos carried a line called power stop that were absolutely fantastic. Rotors were cast in Canada, they were true and lasted forever without warping. Regrettably, I can no longer find them.

Looking for advice/options on quality rotors/pads.

Re: 2014 brake upgrade help

Our 2014 JGC, with Tow Package, had warped rotors and they were replaced under warranty. I believe there may have been a bad batch.

If you are still under warranty, take them in to the dealer and get them replaced. If you are NOT, then still go back to the dealer and complain bitterly and have it shoved back to FCA.

ROTORPROS - Performance Brakes - Brake Pads, Brake Rotors and Brake Kits

Email them for a quote. Rich is my man there. Tell him Denny sent you.

Get the Centric Pro rotors. You can get them coated custom colors, and slotted and/or drilled if you like for a small fee.

He also does combo deals for rotor/pad assembly.

Also, it'll be a good time to flush your brake fluid too. DOT3 synthetic is nice - and you can go to DOT4 for a higher boiling point (race car stuff).

Dont use DOT5 - it's not compatible with existing DOT3 fluid.

You got lucky to have yours replaced under warranty. Brakes (particularly pads and rotors) are rarely covered under warranty, because they can be affected by driving habits. If you're someone who rides with one foot on the brake and the other on the gas, you'll overheat the brakes and cause the to warp prematurely. If your tracking the vehicle, you're going to heat them up more than someone who is just driving it around town. There are many things that affect brake wear and as a result it's rare that warping is considered to be manufacturer defect.
Most likely your dealership replaced yours to maintain good customer service, not because they had to. I certainly agree that asking the dealer to replace them is a good idea, just in case there was a "bad batch. However, it's highly unlikely that complaining bitterly will have them "shoved back to FCA". All you'll probably accomplish is getting mad over something you can/should fix yourself.
Just my $.02 though.

Centric Pro's?

Usually the pads cause the brakes the squeal - but you nailed it down to the rotors?

Centric Plain 120 Series.
I have Hawk Premium Performance pads on the front and never heard anyone have squealing issues with them. I tried bedding them in more than once and they still get loud especially on initially braking after they get wet.
