The pro stops from Pep Boys are Raybestos.
Good choice. I' have them on mine, stops on a dime...

One thing I've learned over the years is to avoid brake pads with a lifetime warranty. They are so hard, which lengthens their life, that braking performance is reduced.

And they are usually very hard on rotors.

yup, ceramic pads are generally harder on rotors.

In order for the harder compounds to work, the rotors they are combined with must be engineered for them.

EBC green or yellow . I put a set of Green pads on the rear where most seem to say don't do much of anything but made a big difference in stopping on my TJ

Nice explanation. Now, if only somebody reads it that cares that their spelling sucks.

I put some ebc yellow pads and ebc slotted rotors on the front and it made a huge difference. Before there was no way i could lock up my tires, now they lock up easily. I even did some before tests to show the braking distance, but i have not had time to do the after tests. Its going to be tricky to get good data without locking up the tires.
