When i did my brakes i went to autozone and got everything there. Came out to be around $130 for everything with my discount. They're not the best quality, my only complaint is the rotors have some rust. Other then that they stop me, are quiet, and come with a 3yr warranty for the rotors and lifetime warranty for the pads.

I have rust on my OEM ones from normal use. I guess it is what it is on that account. I tow often too. Need the extra breaks... I guess that is good and bad.

How does a life time warranty work? They wear out and you get a new set free?

My buddy in college uses their rotors for his truck and sisters car. She goes through rotors and pads atleast once a month. He told me they exchange them no questions asked. I asked them about the warranty and they told me they cover everything so yeah...they wear out you get replacements. Look up their warranty online. Plus i dont have the a-word calipers so mine are prone to warping and uneven pad wear and i know for sure they cover that.

Yeah you have the 99 WJ... Well that is pretty good deal then if they just replace them like that. I am not so sure that it would give me the piece of mind I am looking for though... Brakes are something I still feel like I need to blow some cash on... LOL. How the hell does she go through rotors/pads that fast! That is insane! (women... lol)

Mini rant time (this is not biased toward women, this is the too the people who do this...) "Oh look, derp, red light ahead. Keep going 55 mph, slam on brakes at the last second." "Green light, floorrrrrr, red light, slam brakes" WTH ARE YOU DOING?!?!?!

Thank you! I love that mirror finish!

UPDATE on the OME COIL SPRINGS

Well dad managed to find about the springs because my friend had talked to my dad about them. My friend had though that I had already told him, which I did not. So when I was cleaning the Jeep in the garage, he asks, "So what are you going to do with those coil springs that you bought" I said, "Oh, I am going to take them back to Tech with me and put them on one weekend with the guys and see how they ride." After I had said that, I was like ohhhhhh waaaiiiiiiittttttttttt a minute. I just got tricked, I do not remember telling dad about those. He said back to me, "Well I am not really upset that you bought them, I was a kid once too, I remember doing all kinds of stuff to my car." (at that point I knew it was going to be okay and wasn't gonna get mad! haha) But, he also said, "You need to worry more about school and class then screwing around with the Jeep, so if you wait on them until summer and do really well in at Tech, I will help you get the Bilsteins for the Jeep" SO, with all of that, looks like I am going to be waiting some more, but they WILL being going on. EVENTUALLY! But that is sweet about the Bilsteins, and he is right too, because I would spend so much time on it!

HAHAHA That is why you need to have a CB in the car at all times! That is so epic! Coming home from VT on I-81 there are soooo many trucks that are flying on the highway. If you are not moving, they will run your *** down!!
