Wk2 diesel HD Brakes time for replacement.

Good Morning All.

For those with the Ecodiesel, and hd brakes, what are you using to replace the rotors and pads. I was thinking about the stoptech kit on autoanything.com, but not sure if the drilled and slotted with solid rear rotor is what I have.

Thanks in advance.

HD brakes have vented rotor in the rear. A solid rear rotor is SD. The vented rotors are quit a bit thicker than solid. In 2015, there is no difference between the Diesel HD brakes and the Gas HD brakes.

If you are towing heavy in hilly terrain or racing, the drilled/slotted rotor on the WK2 HD brake may or may not be of some benefit in reducing fade. There are disadvantages on a WK2, but its your coin. They are stylish, however.

My brake guy, who likes happy customers, uses mid range Autozone rotors and pads and never has had a complaint.... well... they do have a tendency to provide the wrong rotors, their parts book was wrong at one time .

Cool so we have a vented rear rotor. I was just looking at options. I may go the Autozone route since I've used them before without any issues. Thanks
