Brake Pads and rotors

Its time to replace my front and rear pads. I also want to do the job right and replace the rotors as well. What brand of ceramic pads and rotors are the best for my 3.5L?

I'm looking through Amazon and there are many different types of hawk brake pads. According to the fitment it said it would fit the SRT 8. Does the 3.5Ls have the same brake pad fit as the Srts?

I would say no. The SRT's brakes are much larger than the V6's.

Personally, I'm a fan of the OEM. No premature wear, brakes great, no complaints

I know I'm about to get chased into the windmill with pitchforks and torches...but in all honesty, I replaced my stock pads 4 years ago with off-the-shelf Auto-Zone brand....and haven't had a days issue out of them, she still stops great, no noise, no shimmy, low dust. I'm also still running the stock rotors.

I just replaced mine with another set of EBCs.

Get in, sit down, shut up and hold on!!!

You can't buy happiness, but you can buy a HEMI and that's kind of the same thing.
