I have QFM performance pads and RDA slotted/dimpled rotors an my WJ and they work a treat. Best pads I've had in a car by a long way as they pull up well and have little dust to worry about.

Just be aware that if you go slotted rotors you'll likely experience some grumble from the brakes due to the slots.

Default Rotors & Pads

I've installed many DBA discs with their kangaroo paws (classified T2 now)


Always had great success matching them with EBC greens, which are also a low dust pad.
They are a hard pad so they tend to chew the rotors so machining is always required at pad change.
You do notice the grooved rotors in the brake pad feel, but stop you like a brick wall

Ecovandal,

I've just realized you're hailing from the Perth area.

If you have not already purchased pads & rotors, justa by accident I have a complete (front & rear) set of RDA dimpled & slotted rotors with front & rear Akebono Pro Act pads in one of my sheds.

Always kept a spare set on hand. They wont fit a WK2 so happy to let them go cheap.

Cheers

Eco (Dave), it was a pleasure to meet you and happy to provide some small assistance to you.

The Lukey muffler we discussed to replace the stock factory main is part no. L3198.
It provides better clearance, a significant improvement to the exhaust flow and lets the turbo spool up much much quicker.

Cheers
Dave

If you're doing off-road driving stick to standard smooth rotors but if you're towing the slotted one could be better. I've used ceramic pads on my Commander for many years towing BIG 3 tonne plus loads and plenty of serious off roading. Ceramics give you excellent grip, long life and they work well with the rotors. If your rotors have some slight ridges then you don't need to machine the rotors the ceramic pads flatten them out so they're nice and smooth within a week or so.

PS I have a set of half worn ceramics for sale very cheap. You should get about 30,000km out of them.
