    Hey everyone new to the forum.

    Was told that I need to get new brake pads, but they couldn't tell me if roaters needed to be replaced so I thought I would just get pads and then either get new roaters or have them resurfaced...

    Also was told that I had some leakage in my struts which needed to be looked at in the future...

    Looking to purchase the parts myself to save a few dollars and after doing so research everyone keeps telling me to go with EBC greenstuff 7000 in the fronts and 6000 in the back...

    What is eveyones thoughts on pads?

    Thoughts on all this for saving a few bucks to just go with pads and possible new roaters or have them resurfaced?


    Thanks for your help!

    Howell fuel injection, header, HEI distributor, TH350, NP208, SOA lift with YJ springs in the front & GW springs in the Rear. AMC20 with G2 1 piece chromos trussed, Dana 30 with G2 chromos and 760x ujoints and MM Stainless Hubs, Geared 4.56. Tom Woods shafts, Metal cloaks, Caged, 37" Toyo MTs.
    The basics. If your jeep is stopping fine with no pulsing in the pedal just change the pads. No new rotors. Don't resurface them. If you are feeling some pulsation when you come to a normal complete stop just have them turned.

    If your jeep is riding fine. I wouldn't replace the struts.

    Brake pads: I like Wagner Thermoquiets or Wagner OEX. I get them at Oreilly's. They are ceramic and have low almost invisible break dust. They are a little pricey, maybe $80. If on a budget get Oreilly's brake best selects. They are also ceramic and will probably be less than $50 for the front.
