    Time to stop!

    So it seems pretty much every time I take the Jeep to Southern Utah I come back with shaking brakes.
    My trailer has big brakes on both axles but still happens.
    To date I've gone through 4 sets of front rotors with 3 sets of pads. 2 sets of rears with one set of pads back there.
    Decided after this last trip it was time to upgrade.
    Did some research and seemed to me that the Wilwood system was the best bang for the buck.
    15.5" rotors with MASSIVE 6 piston calipers.

    I stuck one of the calipers on the 559 in the shop for comparison lol. These are larger than the Ferrari brakes .

    Another couple months and I'll get the rear set also I think.
    Sure stops good now, can't wait to get the Jeep behind it to see how it feels.

    I bought them from one of my distributors, I own a couple Auto repair shops and just realized that I had access to them. Nice surprise really.

    Sticking your Wilwood BBK on a 559's rotor just to show that the caliper is bigger might be the biggest humblebrag I've ever seen. Nicely done!

    I'm running the Ford Motorsport kit actually.
    Paired with Bilstein Struts and shocks.
    Rides really nice.

    Thanks
    I thought it was a pretty good comparison.

    Man those are nice looking! I am not ashamed of my powerstop Z36 kit though. Handles the mountain passes very well!

    Nice. I could't get myself to spend that much money for looks, so I just went with nice rotors and cleaned up calipers.

    Although they do look good. That's not what this was about. I was not able to get the rotors to not warp with my driving style.
    I had OE, Stoptech ( slotted, drilled), Akebono, and WBR rotors.
    All warped.
    Pads were OE, Akebono, EBC (yellow) and Bosch.

    I added up what I've spent and I was $100 below what I've replaced.

    It was time.
