Been running stillens on my Jeep purchased from Kolak 6-7 years ago atleast... still no warpage, no rust. On the 2nd pair of brake pads and they still have ALOT of life left in them.

Get cheap ROTORS they are a wear part. The more expensive rotors are just paying for the manpower to create and the look, it will not aid your stopping power at all. In fact having less surface area will actually reduce your breaking ability (ever so slightly).

Break pads should be were you through a bulk of your money if you want to invest more I would go with Wagner ThermoQuiet - Brake Pad front and backs

Caliper - Don't replace your caliper. If you really are just looking for a change take them out and paint them with some caliper paint and reinstall. New calipers are only useful if they are replacing a broken caliper.

DE, If we erase an old thread (history), we are destine to repeat it.

Mine look "City slick" with the tires off. Oems shuddered when hitting the pedal and had a really deep groove / lip. Slotted and drilled. Completely uncalled for on a heep. Don't forget new fluid, people.

I see your in Raleigh. I'm here in Cary.
