Brembo on back order around country??

Recently, I had to replace my front breaks on my 2012 Cherokee SRT8 and had to wait about two weeks for the Brembo pads..... Is there a problem with these breaks on the srt8 that they're on back order around the country? I think this is ridiculous.

The SRT is a low production vehicle that is very popular right now. All oem parts are going to production. Having said that...There are aftermarket alternatives that are as good or better than the oem pads and 1/4 the cost. Some of the high performance pads are a little more costly...like my hawk hps sports. They are about $130-140 for the front pads...but that's still about half the cost of the oem brembos.

Re: Brembo on back order around country??

Yes, I've heard about those after markets. I did have the pads replaced as well as the rotors and no sooner after leaving the shop I made it maybe a half mile before it felt like the breaks were failing again. I seem to have no pressure whatsoever. As I stepped on the breaks they were getting lower and lower. I immediately drove it back to the dealer and it's been there since Wednesday. They are looking into why this is happening now as it's a mystery to me and my husband. I feel we should have had an answer by now but I don't think this particular service department knows much about srt8's
I was wondering does anyone know where I can find out information about rentals/loaners if my truck is being repaired? I purchased the extended warranty plus the top of the line mopar warranty as well as the tire and rim warranty. The loaner they gave me was a 2012 Toyota which is a little matchbox. Aren't they supposed to give either jeep, Chrysler, or dodge loaners?

Sounds like they just need to bleed the brakes.
