Reason being is the KK is RWD and when the tires slip ESP applies the brakes to the slipping tires (the rear).

Hello everyone,

Did we ever come to general consensus as to replacing/repairing the rotors along with the pads? Our 08 KK has 27,000 miles on it and I am sure its ready for pads.

Well,

Our 08 has 65K on it, I've already replaced the pads all around once but I did not turn the rotors. I need to do them again now and I'll probably replace the rotors as well. I've heard good things about the NAPA premiums so I'll go with that all around.

The rears definitely need to be replaced by 30K but the fronts were ok. I replaced all since I was in there at the time, the rotors should have been turned but there isn't much meat on them so I left them figuring I would need to replace soon. They've held in there but I'm overdue at this point.

I notice that since the pads have worn that the jeep has a wobble with heavy braking. I can feel it in the steering wheel. Will the new pads solve that or would turning or replacing the rotors be necessary to eliminate that? I don't want to put new pads on it if the old rotors will cause premature and or uneven wear.

I also notice pads and rotors from Mopar and Napa are not much different in price.

BTW: Great website,,!!!

The wobble is probably your front brakes and yes they would either need to be turned or replaced the rotors, attached is the min. thickness.

I'm going with the Napa Premiums hoping to get better than the stock performed, maybe with the Napa combination of premium pads & rotors they will last longer than the stock did especially the rears.

Good Luck.

Cool, that makes up my mind for me. New rotors and pads and Napa. I believe Napa was the cheaper of the two.

Yes, but I'm not sure why. I posted a thread when I changed-out my rears. My biggest problem was with rust. I'm in Roc NY and we have to deal with road salt. Now I'm looking for front brake information. I still have lots of pad, but they bound up on my wife once. As I take them apart, I'm finding tight tolerances and when there is rust, the swelling of the metal causes binding. My problem I'm trying to resolve now is: I popped off the old stainless clips, and I did not notice which way they came off.

I'll post later the results of my front brake job as we can all learn from each other.
