Brakes - 2015 SRT

Guys,

My truck is in getting the recall so it doesn't pin me against a fence (poor guy) and they say it needs new front pads & rotors.

It's got approx 14,000 miles on the odometer and I mostly city drive.

1. I find it really hard to believe my rotors need changing
2. What pads would you suggest to reduce the dust but maintain performance?

I have yet to change my brake pads and can't believe that I need to change my rotors every time I change my pads!!!

Thanks for your feedback and advice.

The shifter recall is ready for '14/15s? Does it engage park if any door opens? At any speed?

Re: Brakes - 2015 SRT

Unless you have driven the car like a mad man, there is NO WAY you need new pads and rotors already. I would call SRT hotline and bitch. 14K miles is just outside of 12K. Hell, inspect the hardware yourself. I changed the pads and rotors on mine at 20K just because I was tired of the dust and wanted more aggressive rotors, and they were no worse than 50% gone.

At any rate, please do the rotors/pads yourself if you need to. It is incredibly easy. I have never touched brakes on a vehicle other than this and my SRT 392 Charger (same braking system). It shocked me how simple it is... it can be tedious though if brake dust has caked into the hardware though.

A lot of people recommend StopTech pads. I've never used them. Personally I've used PowerStop Z23 pads with good success, and they're cheap and essentially dust free. Hellcat/392 owners love them. But they may not be that great for several hard braking sessions with this much weight. I haven't tested it on purpose, but a few times when I drove like a bat out of hell, I felt like the pads weren't going to keep up - I could've been totally wrong though. Sorry I don't have more info there.

I bought BrakePerformance rotors for about $450~, F/R. Black zinc coated to prevent rust, and dimpled and slotted for aggressiveness. Can't complain there.

Re: Brakes - 2015 SRT

I have used these before on other vehicles and like the pads. very good stopping power, much better than stop tech and little dust. https://www.napaonline.com/napa/en/p...13M_0230286892

Re: Brakes - 2015 SRT

I inspected the rotors after picking my truck up from the dealer and there is a significant lip on the edge of the front rotors - much more so than the rears.

I'll take it to a local indy to get some honest advice.

Yes, had the shifter recall performed. Didn't test opening the door while driving!
