#96 of 155 2004 Grand Cherokee Limited Brake Questions
Sep 24, 2009 (6:57 am)
I've got a 2004 Grand Cherokee (Limited, 4.7V8, etc) that is coming up on 150K and is in need of some new brake components once again. Rather than go to the shop and get bent over like usual, I'm going to just tackle this one myself. I've done it before, so that's not the issue. My problem is that I don't know what pads and rotors to go with.
Now, I'm not looking to cheap out here. I'd like to get some pads that offer good performance for towing. I pull a 12 foot open trailer for both work and play, with loads ranging from a couple motocross bikes to 2000 pound of various raw materials. So towing performance is mandatory.
Conversely, this Jeep- despite being dearly loved- has seen a hard life of work, play and roadtrips, and wil probably be lucky to see 200k, so I don't want to get anything too expensive. Just something to last me the life of the vehicle.

Ah, jeez, I don't know how I ended up posting in this, I meant to start a new discussion. Sorry.

This is probably as good a place as any. People tend to follow exisiting discussions and may not see a brand new one anyway, especially if it seems to be a "duplicate".

I just finished my brake job this afternoon. I went with the ceramic pads from auto zone. They all had a life time warranty. so I went with the cheep ones. I found out during my pizza delivery days that the metallic pads did last longer but the rotors didn't last as long. If you need to take the rotors off, good luck!. You need to get the retaining clip off the stud the get the biggest hammer you have and beat the hell out of it to loosen it off the hub. use a piece of wood to protect the rotor.

could still be a wheel bering as you shake stuff up when you work on it
try to find the side that makes noise then then jack up that side and turn wheel to see or feel roughness as you turn the wheel
#104 of 155 Rear brake pads and rotors... dealer or other?
Nov 24, 2009 (5:53 am)
Hi. I just bought a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo and it needs rear brake pads and rotors. I took it to the dealer and to other auto care center and the difference in the price from both places is $83. Is it worth paying that extra in the dealer? What could be the difference in the results? I'll appreciate any suggestions, thanks

I just put new calipers,pads and rotors. We bled brakes. Could this be the brake booster ? How hard is it to replace?
