Of note, if you have the 1990 model brake warp is one of the reason Mr T went up on the disc size, have you considered bolting on the later larger discs/callipers and of course you will need the 16 rims.
You can, but may have trouble finding a place to do it. Machine shop here said you must have a sharp bit and go slow and shallow.... Not rpm but across surface so as to not "bite" too much at a hole or slot.Dumb question here, can slotted and cross drilled rotors be turned?
Hi!!For the record my DBA slotted fronts have like 80K of mountain driving/wheeling/towing on them with no issue. I replaced the OEM pads I installed with them after about 60K with EBC yellow stuff truck pads. Did not turn them. Still very happy and would buy them again. The rear DBA's suffered from my lack of time to get in and change pads out in a timely manor. I had to replace them and went with the cryo'ed Powerstop slotted and EBC yellows as well. Probably 15K on those by now?
Anyway I will get slotted again without hesitation. If my 10,000lb truck/trailer combo does not melt them coming down the mountain then nothing will.
The pads are actually awesome. My Xterra has Powerstop pads on all 4 corners by the PO. I still have the Powerstop pads on the front of my FJ too just now with Brembo blanks.Grrrreat. Just finished my front axle and put Powerstops on all four corners too. I "always" go OEM, and for whatever god forsaken reason did not this time. "Try something new..." Errrrrgh. Hard to read this thread after all that work. Well, we shall see.
EDIT: my rotors are 360 Performance with Powerstop pads. So I don't have to freak out quite so much right? FWIW, so far, all bedded in, these brakes are just awesome. Just a few hundred miles, so we'll see about the long term. Love having confident braking power again tho.
From memory my DBA's predate the "T3" labeling but the current 4000 series T3's probably are the same thing. I'm running 80 series EBC yellow stuff truck pads per the recommendation of the EBC support staff.Hi!!
That combo sounds really nice! And EBC are easy to get here in Europe, but I've two questions.~
Which discs are yours, T2 or T3? And pads 100 series Yelows?
Thanks mate!!From memory my DBA's predate the "T3" labeling but the current 4000 series T3's probably are the same thing. I'm running 80 series EBC yellow stuff truck pads per the recommendation of the EBC support staff.
I've liked the slotted rotors better in the mountains. They seem to fad less and have more bite at higher speeds. JMHO. But yes my 80 is the exact opposite of a race car.I really don't see the point of all the cross drilled, slotted, etc. It's not like these are race cars...
