I've been running the Hawk performance LTS pads for a few years now and they've been amazing. My Jeep's lifted with oversized tires so there's a bit more weight, these pads have held up great. I've got about 35k miles on the set so far and there's still around 65% material remaining. When I did my brakes, I replaced front and rear with the Hawks and Raybestos performance rotors at the same time. I suggest upgrading your rotors from an OEM quality, the Grand Cherokee's brake system is now and always has been undersized and underpowered for it's weight and size, which results in the overheating and warping of the brake components and causes the pulsation in your brake pedal and steering wheel when braking.

Here's a link to the company's website if you'd like to check em out.

http://www.hawkperformance.com/perfo...ight-truck-suv.

Here's a link to tire rack where you can get them for about $80/axle and free shipping.

Not sure, never heard of em so I have no experience from which to form an opinion... My instinct would be not so good tho. Best I can tell they're just gonna be cheap, less than oem equivalent pads and likely low quality rotors cast with inferior materials. All 4 corners for around $200 pads and rotors is a great price, I'd say too good... I'd expect them to have problems within the first year or less depending on driving habits and frequency, pads will probly be noisy and put off significant dust, rotors will undoubtedly warp quickly (especially with the Jeep), likely rust, and develop cracks between the cross drilled holes. I've encountered these issues countless times with lower quality "performance" drilled and slotted rotors, the material is just too low quality to withstand the heat and abuse, especially the type that our WK's inflict. It's ultimately your call, I'm just giving my opinion and recommendations to help you avoid problems in the future and ultimately wasting your $. If you're desperate and just need to buy some time til you can do em right, or aren't too concerned with the issues, then these may be a viable option, just know what to expect going into it is all. Good luck, happy to answer questions or help where I can.

Re: What did you do to your WK today?

Airbag light comes on for a few seconds and turns off. This is serious... Probably scariest light to have on your dash
