Just ordered full set of slotted with ceramic pads. I'll let you know after I put the front ones on first to test 'em out. Flash

Wow, what a price...isn't that how much Powerslots/Hawks are for just the front?....I am curious to see how good these are....

Heck for the price, they have to be tons better than stock I would imagine, and at half the price....they would have to suck pretty bad not to justify that.

That does seem like a good price. Please let us know how they perform.

I purchased and installed them. I have had them for over a week now and quality of the product and customer service is top notch from this vendor. Time will tell if this is ultimately going to be a good product for me. I have found from other forums that folks owned them for a lot longer time with no issues.

Man, keep us posted....I am totally up for buying a full set of brakes for less than half cost of Powerslots/Hawks. did you notice a considerable difference in braking performance with them?

Thats crazy I was just looking at EBAY and saw those and was like thats whay to good to be true...so i looked on HTC to see what people were using and here they were. Im really considering getting a set im sure there alot better then what I have now which has been a nightmare for the last 3 months as you can tell from previous posts. I just wish they had a longer warranty I hope that doesnt say something about the quality usually its a direct correlation but hey I guess will find out.

Does anyone know of good calipers the ones I got from Advance auto parts have a lifetime warranty but there crap im bout to have to get my third one form them.

Well, ordered a set of these for a buddies 2500 Hemi. Went to put them on today and the rotors were wrong....? didn't realize 8 lugs could vary, but they do.....Called BM and compared part numbers. Apparently the wrong rotors got boxed up. Had to just settle for a refund since the truck was already in the air. Had to run to Autozone and get a set of Duralasts. Still used the ceramics they sent me though. But unfortunately can't give you any thoughts on the rotors....bummer....

Well, I did order them for my 1500 and they came in quickly, ~2 days but I didn't installed them. They do look really good and I started to install so they do fit.

Long story short after installing the drivers side rotors/pads I went to the passenger side and noticed the cause of the vibration while braking wasn't a warped rotor but rather a froze caliper piston. So I had to uninstall the new stuff and take it in under warranty. After new calipers/rotors/pads under warranty I decided to keep the new stuff until I eaither get new rims or I need to replace them.

I still have a little life left on my stock brakes. Although I just put the 22's on, so that may be short lived. My back brakes are actually in good shape, so it is a hard decision whether to go all the way around or just do the fronts....Hate to leave the backs since you can see the rotors so well with the new rims. Would look really good. And if my stock backs are at 50k with a lot of pad left, guess if I change them I might never have to do it again....lol. But I am anxious ot get these regardless...

I installed the front and rear kit with pads last week and it stops much much better now. I also got rid of the shaking steering wheel when I hit the brakes above 40mph. the box with the rotors said powerstop on them and the pads itself are marked as powerstop also. I only took one pic of the rear driver rotor, overall I'm very happy with it so far, napa wanted $400+ just for the 4 rotors.

Looks good! After todays oil change I just noticed Brake time soon! UGH guess programmer has to wait. Now to upgrade rotors instead. These look great.

Anybody have further comments after a few weeks of driving on them?
