Black Magic brakes

Thank you Blaine for the quick shipping of my new pads and rotors. Too bad wont be able to put them on until Sunday, but looking forward to having some life back in my brake pedal. Ordered Friday and delivered today even with a holiday yesterday.

They are very good brakes. I have no complaints at all and install was very simple. I hope your experience is the same!

You are welcome. I'm grateful that Kat's emergency appendectomy surgery didn't affect our customers too much. I was a bit pre-occupied there for about a week or so.

Like I told you on the phone, you have to take care of health first and the rest after. Thanks again!

Another Thankyou To Blaine & Kat

Just fitted mine, never been able to lock the wheels on a dry road - I can now. The difference is unbelievable.

I ordered mine on a Friday, they were delivered on the Monday morning - in the UK !! They arrived before the new rotors I ordered at the same time from EBC - 140 miles away !

Great service, great brakes.

Fronts...checked the rears and they look good but the noise is definitely coming from the front. I actually took off my doors so i could stick half my body out and apply the brakes.

Any suggestions as to what i can do? I didnt use brake cleaner when putting the front brakes together, got all grease and fingerprints off before installing, torqued everything. Puzzles me

Something is awry if they are making noise and we need to find it. This stuff is dead silent so if noise is present, there is an issue of some kind.

First thing to check is the divots in the sliders and make sure the notches on the ends of the pads are on the bottom so you rotate the top of the caliper in to install it.

Yeah, we're still scratching out head over that one. We didn't charge you nearly enough for that kind of service.

Got them installed finally Tuesday night. After a small setback with a stripped out knuckle, and a rusted on wheel bearing on the opposite side. After all said and done excellent braking now stopping my 35's.

Update, brakes feel great. Also, I just spent $186 on middle price range ceramic pads and rotors for a 2008 Tahoe at oreilly's. So the price of the black magics are really pretty fair considering they are better quality and the performance they provide. Again, would recommend them for your Jeep.
