rotate rotors as in machine them? forget it - waste of money. if they're in good shape and not warped, keep them for a while, otherwise just get new ones.

The machining is like 10-20 bucks. The pads are what cost $200+ they are great pads..

When I machined my old rotors from my Honda I took them to my local auto parts store that only charged my lime $10 each to rotate (machine) them. I would go that route instead of having the dealer take my $$$.

Be careful about which pads you get. Dodge can sell you cheap valueline pads too, but they are no where near the quality and performance as the OEM stock pads. Check the part numbers to make sure they are right for the SRT-4. You can have any local shop or most parts stores turn the rotors.

look at mpsc if you havent already. I think it isnt too much over $400 for the stage 1 front and rear kit with carbon pads. Your choice of slotted or drilled, and ever black silver, or gold color.

Hawk pads are the way to go. If you do that you can also get stainless steel brake lines; that combo is a nice brake upgrade that wont send you into bankruptcy.

FYI:Any post is subject to close scrutiny by the DCX crew for possible warranty restrictions. In other words should you fart loud enough DCX may view that as a performance enhancement thus restricting your warranty

Front AND rear?

Man, don't I wish! While I highly recommend their brake upgrade, you'd better check your pricing.

Good-bye, SRT.
