this weekend i'm planning to replace the rotors and pads on my dad's 02 overland 4.7. I'm in NH and he lives in RI so i can't look at the calipers.
Wondering if anyone knows off-hand whether they are Teves or Akebono calipers. I know the teves had issues and i thought they discontinued using them by 02, but i want to check before i order all the pads and rotors. Getting all EBC. Love that stuff.
Next question: is the e-brake incorportated in the rear caliper or does this jeep still use a drum e-brake like my 98zj? If it is incorported in the rear caliper, i'll need to find a caliper compression tool.
If i were to guess i would say the teves. the change from teves to akebono was on May 11, 2002 (per wjjeeps.com), so if your jeep is a model year 2002, it was probably built in '01. I have a 2002 wj and it was built in, i think apr 2001, just check the tag on the inside of the door
Yep, those are teves. They only switched the fronts to akebono. If they aren't warping rotors right now, it's up to you if you want to switch. I would recommend switching to akebono's after I had to pay ~$800 to get everything done right (~$300 for stillen rotors/pads which warped and then $500 for new rotors, pads, and calipers).
