Detroit axle?

So my 04 WJ I recently purchased needs rotors. They vibrate. Not a surprise. Anyway I figure Iíll order some powerstops from Amazon.have used them with great success on quite a few of my Jeeps. They now carry Detroit Axle! Anyone used there stuff?

Yeah I use there hubs personally and a shop I worked for for 2 years used their parts and Iíve had no issues. Wouldnít put it on my sports car but anything else is game. Theyíre not very far from me so I get quick shipping lol

I just installed their slotted/drilled rotors and pads on the front of my WJ.

So far so good.

If they continue to work well I'll get the matching set for the rear.

I installed their OE style control arms front and rear. Cannot complain, the Jeep handled better than it ever did. Looks like quality to me.

I am happy with the rear lower and rear upper control arms I purchased from them. Good price, good quality, shipped fast.

I can vouch for Detroit Axel. My current rotors (blanks) and pads are from them. The quality seems to be good. Just be forwarded... I did have to grind the ears of the pads a bit for my 04 WJ w/ 4.0 and Akebono calipers. I did my pads and rotors myself around April and they still look great and stop great. No shaking or warping, yet... we'll see what happens in the winter. Hard to beat 'em for the price.

Likewise I put Detroit Axel drilled/slotted on my old lady's Kia Soul a year ago and the car still drives and stops like it should

Your other option in this price point would be Brakemotive. I had their blank rotors warp BADLY in the front of my Jeep after only a year. Had to replace them. Replaced with Detroit Axel

-- also, like @Jeepinpgh .. I have front and lower control arms on my Jeep that are Detroit Axel. They work like they should.

Hi Guys,
Sorry, I take advantage of the fact that you speak about Detroit Axle...; I've been trying to contact them for a while, but strangely they do not answers to messages (thought their website) or mails.
I am searching for them for info's about rear axles for my WJ.

Do someone knows if they are closed due to international Covid situation?

Thanks to all, and sorry again for my question.
