Upgraded brake systems for lift kits

For all of you who have done a lift and obviously gone to a bigger tim/rim like I have.


What have you upgraded on your brake systems, and why?

And what brand(s) did you use, and where you picked them up from?

Got me to thinking its been almost 30,000 kms since my lift and tires/rims were put on in February, and maybe it's time to replace some parts due to obvious wear and tear.

Only thing I've done is upgraded to Camburg extended s/s brake lines.

Seen a few things like rotors on ebay, but not going to purchase something without some prior knowledge first.


Any help is always greatly appreciated.

if slotted are available from a reputable supplier like power slot, get them. I'm not keen on drilled rotors. "Ebay" performance slotted or drilled rotors look nasty real quick. They get rusty and stay rusty from what i have experienced.

they should be fine. Just UGLY. I wouldn't get drilled though if I got an off brand. They tend to crack in between the holes.

I got the upgrade rotors and pads from Jusnes and i am happy with them. Brings it to a screeching stop. Sure it could be better but i can't think of anything else to do to it.

Ceramic pads = trouble. They're over priced and chew up rotors. My carbon metallics worked better than ceramics.
