Power stop brakes?

Im looking for rotors and pads for my jeep. Is this brand any good? Or does anyone have any recommendations?

The rotors are good. The pads suck ***.


Bullitts are better than Bullets

They are notorious for the clips coming off.

I am running them on my Toyota FJ and they seem fine. I also had them on an F150 and they seemed fine on that also. I only have around 8000 miles on the FJ since I put them on and the F150 went around 15000 before I got rid of it. I would buy them again as a kit just like before.

Agreed!

I had to replace the pads because they never stopped squeaking! The braking power is okay, But they squeak a LOT!!!

I went with the autozone duralast gold ++ pads and they don't squeak at all, But the stopping power isn't as great.

+10000. Rotors have been pretty good and look great but as previously stated the pads suck and the clips fall off by just looking at them. However, it is worth to note that even if you junk the pads that come with the set and buy new ones, you can't get decent rotors for front and rear for $350! The bigger downside is that they are made in China and not the good 'ol US of A.

Well i order the "stock" kit i didn't want drilled rotors because on a few different forms i was looking at they said they have had little pebbles get stuck in the holes when going through mud. Im going to give the pads a try and if the clips fall off then ill get some better pads they should be here Saturday

I don't think you will have to worry about the clips. I have the slotted and drilled on my FJ and had them on my F150. Never had a problem with them in the mud or snow or what ever I decided to do to them.
