Upgraded stock brakes (finally).

It's had my fronts replaced to the Roush 4 piston / 1 piece rotor 14" kit (Stoptech) w/ SS lines and Hawk HPS pads. (couldn't quite afford the 6 piston, 2 piece rotor kits).

Rears upgraded to Steeda 13" rotor w/ SS lines and Hawk HPS pads.

Did the bed In cycles last night and today! Ahhhh... I love smell of smoking brake pads in the morning.

The only thing goofy is the Steeda kit is really DBA rotors... The slots on them go in the opposite direction as the Stoptech Rotors (although both have internal cooling veins in the ringgit direction). So it looks to someone else like I'm an idiot and installed the rear rotors backwards.

They work awesome.

I had a ton of problems with the stocks (front and rear). Left rear was warped (not just pad deposit), fronts were "notchy"... Never smooth from the day I got them. And started to have annoying cyclical clicking.

Dealer blamed my aftermarket wheels. Dbags. The problems were even before I switched wheels.
