Re: Best place to Purchase Brakes

I just hate how they warp and you have to have then turned.

Re: Best place to Purchase Brakes

carwashes are the #1 warper of rotors... not sure if thats your issue or not, but I've know alot of people who keep warping rotors and it generally ends up being carwashes as the culprit.

Re: Best place to Purchase Brakes

If you're talking about the carwashes you drive into then no no no......I don't do those.

....interesting. I've never heard that assertion before. Wonder what mechanism causes that?

I've felt my rotors after a long drive (to check for a dragging brake). They were slightly over warm; never hot.

Re: Best place to Purchase Brakes

well b/c 90% of the time people drive to the carwash under stop and go driving conditions and instead of waiting a few minutes for their brakes to cool back down they immediately start the carwash, meaning your hot brakes are instantly hit by cold water... on a long highway drive you don't really use your brakes and the air flow keeps them cool.

Re: Best place to Purchase Brakes

Yeah and some cross drilled rotors would keep even cooler.

Thank you. I didn't think of it that way. Most of my driving is town/rural; the car wash is ~1.5 miles from home and 2 stop signs.

Thank you bud. I'll email Nick and see what he comes back with. Did you go ahead and order? I'm going to get them all around. I have 90k miles on my WK and I know the fronts are warped slightly now. Makes me nuts when I feel it.

Have at it guys! Just found. Overstock clearance. I'm buying now. Can't beat it.

Found on Ebay originally.

Nick just emailed me back too. Was very quick. He's hooking me up with everything including their Metal Matrix Pads also on sale.

Re: Best place to Purchase Brakes

I ended up going through Stillen direct. James was very helpfu land cut me a good deal.

The clearance/overstock rotors are the DBA 4000 series just reboxed. I confirmed. That's one heck of a deal. They are normally $298.67.

They have a special going ona nd the rear Metal Matrix Pads are free.

So I got:

Front Rotors - $161.19
Rear Rotors - $389.67
Front Pads - $72.54
Discounted Shipping to NJ - $39.00
Total - $662.40

I know I could have probably gotten a better price on the front pads and rear rotors if I dug but since I was already getting a good deal on front rotors and rear pads for free I didn't bother.
