My new R1 Concept Premium Rotors and new brake pads
 
Well the infamous rear brake squeak we normally get with these jeep SRT8s was driving me nuts.
I needed front brakes already so I went ahead and ordered new R1 Premium Rotors (drilled and slotted). I also went with the rear pads that have been reported to work the best to fix the rear brake squeak, those pads are for a '06 CTS-V which also use similar Brembo rear set up, the pads are a direct fit for our jeeps. For the front pads I stayed with the OEM Brembos as I didn't have any squeaking from the front and I didn't want to loose the stopping power I currently had.

Here's a few pictures from today's install... (6/25/09).

These are the pads I used: Front OEM Pads and rear Akebono '06 CTS-V pads.

I'm sure you remember how bad they squeaked that day we met at Houlihans, that night they were squeaking pretty bad.

Thanks Scott!
Now all I have to do next is to swap the calipers for the '08 - '09 red ones, I got to find someone in my neck of the woods that would like to swap for my black ones. And I also want to get the steel braided brake lines.

Thanks Rob!
I'm sure they do, they have the same style premium drilled and slotted rotors for the WJ also, so I'm guessing they have for the WKs as well.
My dad was just here and he loved the way they look, now he want me to order him a set for his 4Runner lol.
I'm surprised none of you guys have asked Steven from R1 to be a member here. Give him a call, he's a nice guy to talk to.

I went to their website. For the WK, they only show 05-6. So i sent an email asking about other MY. I also mentioned to him that we have a NICE NEW Website with many Jeeps. And asked if they were interested in becoming a vendor. For FREE!

We'll see what he says.....

I'm thinking of ordering some now for my WJ! Thanks Mario for the site and info. Do they work good on your WJ? Any squeaks or any kind of noise?
