Brakes and Rotors Question

Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen,

I am relatively new to the jeep world and forum.
Tomorrow I am going to attempt to change my brake pads for the first time.
(I luckily have someone that is going to help me since it is my first real service task!)

I was planning buying and using pads and rotors from Napa Auto Parts.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to if these are quality and reliable?

Also would anyone know off hand the torque specs for the nuts and bolts of the calipers and rotors?

Thank you in advance

If you have a good parts store with a reliable staff then they'll be able to give you some tips and advice when you buy your pads.. Napa is usually pretty good. Oreilly Auto Parts has some good people too.

I'd say anything with a limited lifetime warranty will be a decent part for the money. Just make sure you don't buy any el-cheepo 1 year warranty pads/shoes. Have fun..

TS for the calipers is 55 ft lb. I would suggest making sure to get the retainer clips when you get the shoes as they may be rusted & if so they are easy to replace, I got them from NAPA, there are 4 each side
