  1. Help with Brake pads and rotors

    Hello, Is it normal to need to change my brakes and rotors after 4 years doing 7500-10000 miles a year?

    I had bought thermosqueak brake pads and centric rotors and these heads i dont really trust told me its time for new ones. But they only looked at the back ones.

    Should I just order new ones from rockauto and be done with it? It's for a 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.7 Laredo. What type would you order for snow heavy conditions as well as I'm up here in Canada. Thanks.

    changing that stuff is totally dependent on your style of driving. some people go through brakes fast, and some slow.
    no more jeeps at this time. next time it will be a cj with a v8

    It's weird I don't brake too much. What kind of brands do you like for pads and rotors? Thanks

    Style as in highway driving, off road rock crawling, hauling.

    I've purchased rotors and pads from Brake Performance and have been happy.

    I buy my pads/shoes from Autozone with a lifetime warranty. I generally get a long time out of rotors but my wife who has a heavy foot needs her rotors replaced every other time. Heavy braking generates a lot more heat.

    I get mine from orielly's, similar to autozone.

    So I don't know if we answered this question. As mentioned driving habits like speed up and stop fast.. Riding the brake down hills. Speed up slow down...

    If you have a stuck caliper, ti will kill a set of pads quickly. Anything keeping the pads from gliding or the caliper from opening. Will eat pads quickly.

    They look decent. You can have them turned. The shop will let you know if they are warped or too much needs to be removed - which would mean replacement.

    They don't look to bad as far as the brakes your around 40,000 miles sounds like you got a good run in them. I know my wife burns threw hers in about 25,000 miles but she brakes hard and at the last second.

    Riding with my wife feels like she's trying to choke me out with the seat belt she brakes so hard.

    I've learned not to say anything...

    I too have learned not to say anything. Buy new ones with lifetime warranty keep receipt in glove box and just replace them every 2 years.

    My wife is also a hard braker and often waits until the last minute to apply the brakes. I've learned not to say anything but I still get fussed at when my right leg instinctively goes up to hit the non existent brake pedal on the passenger side

    Hi which brake pads and rotors have lifetime warranty? I have the receipts. I barely press the brakes when I'm driving. Thanks

    I think all the big box store offer them. I have felt with Auto Zone and Advance auto. They both offer lifetime brakes and they don't cost that much more

    We can't get lifetime on rockauto pads and rotors? I'm about to order this Powerstop brake pad & rotor kit:

    There is a decent warranty on those.

    Perf brake is lifetime mine wire nicely and are ready to change. 10yrs is good


    Be sure if you get any parts there is a core charge there is a limited time to return cores for credit.

    Many of the parts that we buy require you to return the old part - they will charge you a deposit (core charge) when you buy it, and when you bring back the old part you get your money back.

    They rebuild the old parts as sell them to the next guy.
