Re: Stock brake pad replacement options

Thanks for all the great info. The dealer said they need to inspect my rotors and measure them to see if they can be resurfaced. They are not the slotted rotors on my 2015. If it's deemed a quality control issue they will replace the rotors for free because I have less than 18000 miles and also it's not even one year old yet.

This is my dd and other than a few blasts here and there I'm not sure why the brakes have started squeaking. The fronts are squeaking like the indicator is touching but the pads themselves still look beefy. There is a slight groove in the front rotors about 1/16 " in depth maybe less, so under a quick glance the service manager said they should take a look at it on my next oil change. That is in 600 miles( I change every 3k ). They want an arm and a leg to do the brakes especially if rotors not covered. So I intend to get their opinion then decide on my next move.

To drop 1500-2000k on brakes and another 1500-2000 on tires in a few thousand miles(have 16600 to date), there is a sweet hellcat chally on their lot. Plus they always drool over the gt haus lol, though that'd be coming off prior to trade in lol.

Re: Stock brake pad replacement options

Dealer replace both front rotors. Factory bulletin was out on them so they were free. I also got the updated slotted rotors instead of the normal rotors my 2015 came with. They also did 4 software updates one of which eliminated that annoyed first cold start 1-2 gear shift. A that is pretty much gone now. Truck shifts crisper now too.

Re: Stock brake pad replacement options

Highly recommend the Power Stop Z23 Evolution pads (1405 for front, 1053 for rear). They're really popular on the new SRT 392 & Hellcat Chargers and Challengers. I had them on my Charger and loved them so much I put them on the Jeep too (albeit changing the factory pads at 18,000 miles on the Jeep was horrible - the brake dust was baked on like carbon from a dirty gun. It took hours to do the job versus <1 hour like it should have).

The biggest seller here is lack of dust. They practically do not dust at all. Some report slightly less initial bite, but I didn't feel that at all. They feel like they stop just as well to me, but they're probably not great for track use. But for DD, I will buy them over and over especially since they only cost about $100 combined.

Re: Stock brake pad replacement options

I have the z23's on my Jeep since about 200 miles and the initial bite is horrible and they fade very easily, at 900 miles now looking to replace them with something else. I even tried to bed them in twice. I also have a 2005 Subaru WRX STi with DBA rotors and stop tech pads and they are great.

No issues here as I said. And a lot of the people with Hellcats and 392's love them as well. Sorry your experience was poor.

EDIT:

So I found a '13 post of yours with these part numbers but can only find them on Carid and they only show fitment for "ALL 2015 JGC" without any SRT reference...so if these part #'s are on yours then they are good for mine...

crossdrilled
33S50217
33S50218

slotted
33S60217
33S60218

I will never track mine and am concerned about the aluminum hats on the 2 pc rotors for salt corrosion. Plus the weight savings is really a handling thing (ie track) not really so much drag/ET benefiting so the extra coin is not adding up for me for 2 pc rotors....

I followed your recommendation and got slotted brembos and the hawks/stoptechs and AAAAARRRRRRGGGGGHHHHHH!!!!!

I have the most awful brake squeal ever....I mean it is fawking bad!

I literally went to the highway and tried to bed them twice and the squeal comes back. They were fine for the first couple weeks but bad now.

What the hell do I do? I am ready to go back to the factory pads and deal with the dust.

I cannot deal with this. I can actually make a consistent squeal for more than 60 seconds by slowly moving forward with my foot lightly on the brake.

Re: Stock brake pad replacement options

What hawk pads did u get? Did u bed them in right after installing? I wouldn't recommend slotted...but that shouldn't matter here. There's too many variables to blame it on the pads....hundreds of owners have them.

Hawk Performance HB649F.605 HPS Performance Ceramic Brake Pad

I bedded them immediately after install but then realized that brembo suggests doing it after the gold color has been removed.

I bedded twice after that. The highway bedding was like 20 brake applications from 65mph. I looked like a maniac on the shoulder of the highway that day. I then drove like 20 miles to let the rotors cool without applying the brakes at all.

I dont know what the hell is the problem.

Oh and Yes I used the brake grease too.
