2011 JK RUBI 2dr. 6spd, 4.56 gears, 34in. NITTO tires. 33lbs air on road, 12lbs. air on the rocks. Had my favorite shop in Denver change front and rear pads at 66,500 miles a year ago with JEEP pads. They thought I could wait another year and showed me what they looked like. Being a old dude, I told them, my dime, change them. I don't row the gears downshifting on the road but, I use them going downhill in the rocks. Lucky me!

Is it OK to change out only the back brake pads?

Do you have a recomended brake pad? I'll probably buy them here. https://www.quadratec.com/search/jeep%20brake%20pads

Also will do my own work and will check rotors for being in spec.

Thanks sierrabob



Yes, you can do just the back...
I suggest these pads...https://www.quadratec.com/products/56214_0303.htm

Get ceramic pads!!! Do not get bi-ceramic, unless you like your rims with brake dust all over them...
Never-seize the calipers slide when you have it apart.


Note ceramic pads ARE more money, but they last much longer, and they don't dirty your wheels.

Thank you appreciate the information.

Odd the reviews on Amazon for these "low dust" brake pads say they are great but make dust!!! https://www.amazon.com/Hawk-Performa...ustomerReviews

Also the same thing about the "Quiet Brakes" I put on the rear, the reviewers said they make noise!!!

I don't buy brake pads often enough to have an opinion and just odd that the reviews contradict the advertisement!!! I did get the rear pads installed and they do work quiet and stop the jeep well. The front are still in good shape and for now will hold off on replacing them.
