Pardon my noobie ignorance, but why swap the Brambos? Is there some kind of "they actually bad" thing, or is it a "for when you burn up the stock pads" kinda thing?
Good stuffGreat write-up..I always took off the calipers. Not anymore..
After 30,000km I am fitting EBC Yellow Stuff pads to my 2012 SRT Super Bee now and the dealer said they do not machine the rotors/discs (because they are slotted). I suspect this is not correct, can anyone clarify please?
Actually, slotted and drilled rotors CAN be machined but most operators don't want to do it because it puts more wear and introduces greater risk to the blades on their machines. If you replace the pads and don't notice any vibration, you're probably fine.Slotted, and/or cross-drilled rotors are non-serviceable. The R1 Concepts Eline Cross Drilled rotors are still holding up just fine, with absolutely no warping, since installed them around 3/26/2012, along with the Hawk HPS pads. I am going to pull my wheels when is starts warming up, but from what I saw in fall, the pads had plenty of wear left in them to last me until this summer. My car is a daily driver with 129,000 miles on it.
Come on now, you've been here long enough to know about the "How do I do everything" thread :biggrinjester:this is a great post. Now, would anyone know where there is a post like this to show replacing rotors and pads on a srt8 (2006)? My rotors and pads are due to arrive today and I want to change them tomorrow. Thanks guys!
Haha! It's all good, I figured you haven't been on in some time, just had to give you a hard time :alfdance:Thanks Stumblin Steve! To be honest I don't come on here very often anymore and completely forgot about that thread. I guess I need to get back on here and read the threads more often!! Thanks again!
