Thanks for elaborating on your post. I appreciate you taking your time and helping the community out. Some of your posts were pretty confusing which is why there were so many questions. I can't wait for a company to finally offer SS brake lines without having to send a new set in for them to steal the fittings off of. Thanks.

Re: Stop Tech Brake pads review

Anymore word on the SS brake lines? I just checked Stoptech's website and still nothing for the GCSRT8.

Re: Stop Tech Brake pads review

Due to forum rules we're not able to respond to PM's

Our products are only available through distribution. Group buys are against company policy.

The lines are in process. These are not as simple as most lines that we produce. We make our lines to the best engineering standards. There's a custom block that need to be supplied. We often see the alternative available from other companies which is a lines with end-fittings, and zip ties to hold the line in place, which isn't the proper way to do things. The brake line isn't something you want failing.

The lines and big brake kits are being developed at the same time. We make products available as soon as we can.

Sorry if we sound impatient. I had your TRD/Stoptech 332mm BBK for my lexis IS300 and the quality was top notch. Thanks for stepping up and make some products for the Grand Cherokee SRT8.

Re: Stop Tech Brake pads review

I've been away from the forums for awhile but I'm happy I saw this post. I installed R1's and Stoptech pads on all 4 corners about 1K miles ago and just got the chance to bed them in this past weekend. These pads are really solid and offer, imo, better bite than oem with less dust. I can even tell an strong improvement after proper bedding. They are easy to install, so thanks Dr. Z!

I'll be jumping up to DOT4 when I replace the fluid (should of done it earlier...) but I am really stoked to hear we will be getting stainless lines soon... So add me to the list of impatient forum guys.

Re: Stop Tech Brake pads review

I drove cmn1's Jeep last night and since I know how he drives it and he gave me the green light to be hard on it I tested out the Stoptechs that he has on.

IMO, they are very nice pads and his combo (slotted rotors) definitely stops better than oem rotor and pad setup that I have on my Jeep.

I will definitely be getting Stoptechs when I upgrade/replace my OEMs.

Look up proper bedding procedures, that should point you in the right direction. The biggest part is giving your rotors ample time to cool between beddings, that will keep them from warping.

What Phil said. 60-10 without stopping 5-6 times and a 10 minute cool down. You must be very firm when doing this to the point just before the abs kicks in. You do not do this like you would be coming to a normal stop.

You should have done it before you even got to 50 miles. Should have been the first thing you did when you put them on. What kind of car did you buy? It doesn't say Yugo anywhere? Do what you want but you asked how to bed brakes and that's how you do it. If you think that is beating on it you should watch one of my videos. When your brakes start squealing and you ask what to do, remember you chose not to do this.
