Questions regarding new Rotors/Pads/Brakes

Hey there,

I am changing all my rotors and pads, my 2006 Grand Cherokee Jeep has 125,000 miles on it, I have some questions:

1). Am I better off buying:

Power Stop Extreme Performance Drilled and Slotted Rotor (Front+Rear) ($240)+ WAGNER ThermoQuiet OE Replacement Ceramic Pads Front + Rear ($70)

or

Centric / Stop Tech SportStop XDrilled and Slotted Rotor (Front+Rear) ($285)+ WAGNER ThermoQuiet OE Replacement Ceramic Pads Front + Rear ($70)

or some other type of Rotors or Pads in a similar -/+ 30$ range?

2). What else would you change at the same time around the wheelbase? Hubs? Drums? Wheel Covers, Calipers, Caliper Wires?

3). Do I need to change the brake fluid or buy anything else to perform these changes? Any special lubes, etc?

Thank you!

Personally I would look at R1 Concepts or Stillens. Well worth the money.

Re: Questions regarding new Rotors/Pads/Brakes

I just want to mention that I use this Jeep as a daily driver, and am looking for something just a bit better than stock but not anything more expensive than the ones I listed though. Thx.

You mentioned $285 +/- $30. A set of Stillens will run you about $325. I have them on my DD and they are awesome. Worth the few extra bucks IMO.

Hey, that's not bad, do you know where I can get them from? I will try and find a place that ships to Canada, thx.

Re: Questions regarding new Rotors/Pads/Brakes

Guys, I've made up my mind to buy these:

Centric Parts 120.58001 and 120.58002 Premium Brake Rotor with Black E-Coating

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...=ATVPDKIKX0DER

Now my problem is Amazon.com does not ship them to Canada, Rock Auto wants 185$ for shipping to Canada, and Summit Racing does not have them??????

What a dilemna!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Help!

I chose these because people say drilled and slotted are no point for a jeep and can crack sometimes around the drilled areas..........They are also double the price.
