Any thoughts on this brand/seller?

Time for a full replacement and I saw this listed and wanted to know if this is a good deal or if I should stay away (https://www.amazon.com/SPEC-Brake-Ro...grand+cherokee).

Thanks.

Re: Any thoughts on this brand/seller?

no opinion on the rotors...but I would never use ceramic pads. Youll lose performamce and they are noisy

Aren't the factory pads ceramic? They have almost no dust and last a long time, so I assumed they were.

Re: Any thoughts on this brand/seller?

PowerStop has a decent kit at a very reasonable price. I've been running the larger rotors (HD brakes equivalent) on my 3.6 and it is pretty good.

Re: Any thoughts on this brand/seller?

Wagner has released a series of brake pads that are considered to be 'revolutionary' with better wear and shorter stop times than traditional semi-metallics. OEx Brake Pads | Vehicle Brake Parts | Wagner Brake These are what I plan to purchase when I need pads. I replaced the brake pads on the wife's Mazda 6 with ceramic, and I love them. No dust, no noise and wear very well. The key is to ensure that the rotors are completely clean before install because if they do get pad material / dust from the semi-metallic pads embedded into them, they will make noise.

The nice thing with Wagner is they offer free lifetime replacement on all pads and rotors.
