Stock brake pad replacement options

What are guys replacing their stock pads with if they decide to try something aftermarket? I don't reqiure anything superior to the stock brake performance and if I could cut down on brake dust a bit that'd be great. My front rotors need to be resurfaced as well. Currently have 15,700 miles. No tracking only DD use.

The stock four seasons look fairly good still. Hoping to get 20-22k out of them before deciding what path I'll take there.

Anyway. Thanks for the help. Jim

Re: Stock brake pad replacement options

Brembo don't resurface their rotors. No dealer I've talked to will do it. I would grab a set of R1 Concept slotted or drilled rotors.

Re: Stock brake pad replacement options

The rear brakes are the same as the 06-10 jeep SRT8 and the stoptechs were great on them. I just went with that experience and blackops liked them too. I think theyve sold hundreds of these sets and not one problem from anyone.

Re: Stock brake pad replacement options

Thanks Scott, couldn't find a clear "winner" in my research other than a few "stoptechs are slightly cheaper and fade less", mostly just degrees of excellence between the two.

Re: Stock brake pad replacement options

this combo produced less or no squeal on the wk1 and Ive run them on 2 wk2 SRts with great success. Very little dust and great stopping power.

Re: Stock brake pad replacement options

Scott,

How about the front-end brake squeal; did the Hawk pads reduce that from stock? I have had squeal for a while, just learned of the TSB relating to this for new rotors, so once they are in at the dealership, I was planning to get the new rotors and put on Hawk HPS pads to hopefully get rid of the dust and squeal. I don't track the truck (forgive me, it is my 'winter beater'), so I don't need exceptional performance. Would just like it quieter and cleaner, if possible.

Mike

Re: Stock brake pad replacement options

0 squeal...but I added the brembo sport rotors as well. But with this beast...you need to go out and spank it ever so often...the brakes are made.to be pushed hard. My guess is your squeal is from all the easy braking. Let them.replace the rotors and add the hawk hp sports...not the hawk 5.0..hps sports. And youll be fine.

Re: Stock brake pad replacement options

Scott,

Roger that. I got the Hawk HB649F605 Ferro-Carbon pads, HPS series, so sounds like I should be good. Gonna also do the rears at the same time, but already got the Hawk HB194F.570 HPS Performance Ceramic pads, otherwise would have gone with the StopTechs y'all are recommending.

Much appreciated on the advise.

Mike
