R1 Concepts D/S rotors, pads and New E brake lever. 56K warning!
 
After my rear brakes locked up i ordered up new parts for the WK. Everything finally showed up and i finished my WK today. This evening was the first time driving my WK in almost 2 weeks. I am so happy to drive it again.

R1 Concepts Drilled and Slotted rotors, Posi Quiet Ceramic pads, G2 Silver Caliper paint kit, plenty of CRC Red Disc brake quiet, bled the whole system out and installed a Dark Slate gray Leather and Chrome E brake handle. (the e brake handle install is a bitch)

Thanks buddy, could not have done it w/o your help too!

If you look at my Dash you can see my not so finished custom nav bezel too! LOL.

The color of the E brake handle actually blends really well with the rest of the center console and dark parts. I think i might eventually get the SRT8 steering wheel and Dark Charcoal leather arm rest too to tie it all together.

How much work was it to swap out the brakes? rotors dont take much to pop off do they?

Its easy if your not painting the calipers, Thats very time consuming.

Yea, well i took it for a ride and did some standard break in steps. They should be fine.

What is the "proper" procedure? I have read so many i dont know whats right any more.

Which pads did you get? The R1 Rotors seem to eat pads for dinner. Had mine done about 3k miles ago with the Hawk Ceramic pads, and they're squeaking again when going backwards. And I thought 15k out of the stockers was bad. :x

Tell us more about the ebrake install. I've been contemplating this for a while but I have yet to find information on the install.
