Stock Brembo rotors and pads alternative.....

I called the dealership today to have my rotors and pads replaced and was told that the components are backordered without a definitive date of arrival.

Does anyone have any suggestions as far as an alternative choice/brand?

Thanks in advance......

Re: Stock Brembo rotors and pads alternative.....

I just installed the Brembo sport slotted rotors, Tire rack had them in stock. Ordered and installed Hawk HPS front pads and Stoptech rear pads. Got the pads from Blackops. Both vendors got the parts to me very quickly. I was beyond frustrated with the dealer's explanation that they had no ETA on parts. I used to have to call in advance to see if they had the correct oil before any oil change, now I have to bring my own parts!

Thanks, any reasons why Stoptech pads in the rear as opposed to Hawk HPS?

Re: Stock Brembo rotors and pads alternative.....

Our rear brakes are the same as what was run on all 4 corners for the WK1 SRT, very good feedback on the stoptechs from what I read. Stoptech doesn't make a pad that I could find that fit our front brakes, some other users had success with this combo so I figured I would give it a try. Happy with it so far....
