    Went to get my brakes changed and found that I still have over 50% of the pads left but the rotors needed to be replaced instead.
    Im looking online and on Mopar websites for replacements and im thinking that its not right. is it?

    Autozone has Duralast for 50$
    Advanced Autoparts has Wagner and Wearever for 40-60$
    Mopar: 149$

    Im my mind it makes me think that they are cheap replacements, are they? im looking for just stock flat surface rotors.

    :confused:

    that don't sound right:dontknow:

    ya got a prob???

    ya need rotors & the pads are fine???

    first impression is BS

    never replaced rotors/drums & not replaced pads/shoes.

    Autozone/advance lists rotors for the ram srt-10. when you actually go to put them on tho they are too small. they sell you normal ram 1500 rotors.

    Just checked my back rotor and its sitting at 28.67mm thick.
    where do I find the recommended thickness on the rotors? Im going to have to pull it off aren't I?

    Yup O Reilly's or Advanced has good rotors that work well. Not the first I've seen pads wear the rotor and pads not ready to replace. Our pads have a great gripping compound that cuts the rotors fairly easily. :burnout:

    Ditto....my zeckhausen rotors and pads have over 100K miles and still plenty of pad left and rotors still look/perform like new. My stock rotors made to 30K miles. Stock pads didn't make that long and switched to EBC but soon there after went to the Zeckhausen setup and extremely satisfied.

    Difference to stock? No dust and while the initial bite is not as strong overall braking force is the same.

    I went to Cquence and they didn't have the SRT10 as one of their options to pick from, but they had all the others.

    Nm, you have to leave the cab details blank to find the SRT-10 on cquence.

    Yes sir and if you send them a nice e-mail they'll most of the time give you a discount. I walked out the door shipping and all $350 all four corners.

    I've used Cquence on my vehicles for a while and really like their products.

    I love the pics, they help.
    I have only replaced rotors on my BMW and it had a rotor screw to take off, but these don't? even better.
