Default pads and rotors for wheeling

I need new pads for the rear of my jeep. The rotors are also warped so I may have them turned if they are within spec, or just buy new ones.

What do you use? Seems like there is a lot of warpage for the little driving I do. I'm sure there is a lot of heat build up when in 4 low at the dunes or on the trails?????

I had organic pads on the rear but they did horrible. I'd imagine a semi-metallic would be all that is needed for the rear??

if its just a wheeler i would buy AZ pads and rotors. get the duralast as they have limited lifetime warranty. then when they go bad get them replaced for nothing. why spend alot of money on something you don't drive very much.

I used the auto value parts master rotors in a 14 bolt disc brake swap for the back of my jeep (they have a lifetime warranty and all that) with wagner pads.. I also used the same thing when I replaced the pads/rotors on my dana 30... Just got done putting the brakes on the 60 front that is going in my jeep... parts master rotors wagner pads...


They work great, I dd it, wheel it. Haven't had a warped rotor yet. The price is great usually for both of those. If you are having trouble with warping I would check out your calipers, caliper slides and make sure everything moves freely

I also woudlnt even mess with turning rotors

Bought last set of rotors/pads from Car Quest - wearing good. As said earlier check caliper slide pins and use toque wrench or torque sticks to tighten wheel lug nuts. DONT use the impact.

Well I just went to Napa and bought their stuff.

However with my custom disc brake setup on my 9", I have ran into some issues. Seems as if the rotors I bought are thicker than what I originally had. This is causing the pads to get locked against the rotor causing it to not spin freely.

I need to re-work the brackets tomorrow and hopefully get everything working correctly.
