Changed out the front rotors and pads, cooked the pads and warped the rotors. Went with power slot cryo rotors and ebc yellow pads, so far so good

Dmac; what were the part #s for that setup, cost, and where did you get it? #1 issue on the car is lack of braking performance and brake fade/warp. Heavy car def needs better OEM setup!


Thanks!

I got the parts from Zeckhausen Racing http://store.zeckhausen.com/catalog/index.php?cPath=76_172_4248_4249
The part# for the front rotors is 126.40073CSL and CSR. This is for the cryo slotted rotors $134 each. Don't need cryo slotted on the rear, go with the slotted @ $103 each 126.40077SL and SR. The EBC Yellow Pads aren't cheap $142 @ Amazon part# DP41743R. Race-Mart has them cheaper @ $119 http://www.race-mart.com/EBC_Brakes-EBC-DP41743R.html. Dropped shipped from EBC

What made you choose Yellow over the Green Stuff?
Was it the fade factor? EBC claims the Greens have more friction, and less dust.
I've done Green on fronts and OEM on rear (on a '02 300M Special), and Green all around, but have not tried the Yellows yet.

So far they are great, no fade, no sounds, stops on a dime and leaves change. The EBC pads are great as well

I just duplicated dmac's effort/parts list and ordered the same.
Hopefully, the parts will roll in next week and I'll install them.
This car really should have come with better brakes from the factory.

Wheels

Anyone see any good looking optional wheels for the CT? I have an 11 black, and I'm thinking she sure needs chrome..

What kind of type brakes did the Crosstour with as OEM? Semi-Metallic?

Hi fellow crosstour owners, I'll be working on 4 wheel tire rotation and brake service this weekend. I went with the power slot front rotors and EBC ultimax pads for the front and the back (didnt want anything aggressive).

Any tips on changing out the pads and rotor in the front?
Any tips on changing out the rear pads? (screwy brake piston compression, spcl tools?)

Thanks so much! This is a great forum!

Cheers,

Hate to tell you this....but the Cryo process on rotors is TOTAL B.S.! :eek:

I got suckered-into this a few years ago after continually getting "warped" rotors / judder -- and truly, no difference / improvement WHATSOEVER. :rolleyes:

You could buy TWO or even THREE sets of rotors for what a single set of Cryos costs, and just change them out every 5-10k miles.

Don't waste your money.

For a Daily Driver, a bbk isn't worth the cost either, unless you are taking your CT to the Track...which I doubt! :D
