New Rotors and pads

Installed my new pads and rotors couldn't be happier. Finally got rid of that brake squeak that had me cringe when I came to a stop. Thanks AM Click image for larger version

It's a daily driver. I don't track my car and I'm not hard on it.

Weird you started this thread. We just purchased new rotors and pads for our 14 V6 from AM and I put them on today. Can't wait to drive it tomorrow.

That's a good point. Always been wary of cross drilled since every time I ask about them, people say they crack. But those might just be those kinds that beat the dog crap out of their cars. I baby mine. Now you got me thinking. This forum is driving me to the poor house. Lol

I just replaced all my rotors with the StopTech Slotted Rotors from AM, They work great, didn't get drilled because too many warnings, including from my tech at Chris' Car Doc. Besides, I like to race at Royal Purple Raceway and they do not allow drilled rotors on the track.

Just got back from a test drive with the new drilled and slotted rotors and carbon fiber/ceramic pads. What a difference. Pedal feel is much firmer and more responsive. Very quiet also. Sooo smmmoooth.

Mustangman is back in the game! Happy to hear you had some time off work to put a mod on the whip! I was thinking of going with this kit Ford Racing Mustang Front Disc Brake Upgrade V6 2005-2010 before I put on the gears coming soon! (not soon enough though)

My brother had drilled and slotted rotors on his magnum. All 4 cracked. I stick with slotted. But those drilled and slotted are very pretty

Yes, you have to make sure they are pushed against the calipers tight or they will rub,especially the front one's. Not sure I would buy them again, not because of rubbing, because of the price.

Every one of my cars have/had cross drilled and slotted rotors. No issues in the past couple decades here. A few of the jeep club guys here run them as well, and those things take a beating on some of the trails and rock climbs. The way I look at it is that every product has some sort of failure rate. It doesn't take but a couple bad experiences to spread a bad product mindset. In this case I've never seen or heard of a failure on a street vehicle, or even an off road application. No issues at the drag strip for me, but I can't speak at all for road courses.

Though my current setup is pissing me off with occasional squeaks at almost a dead stop. I need to pull it all apart and give everything the once over. Shouldn't be the rotors or pads as I've used the same exact setup a few times and this is the first time I had an issue. It's also the first time I did new calipers, ss lines, pads and rotors all at once. Just some kinks to iron out.
