Default Rotor upgrade and new pads!!

I found (thanks to FX4wannabe) that with Superlift suspension lifts (older kits) have the option to keep stock rotors or upgrade to a 12 inch rotor, so I went ahead and upgraded! Along with all the other front end replacements I did, I upgraded to Centric 12" rotors and Centric Posi-quiet brake pads!

Oh my word, your calipers are in desperate need of a coat of paint!

But looks good! Stopping those 33s must have been hard with stock rotors.

It is always nice to be able to stop.

I need to upgrade my brakes with the larger tires it is hard to stop it.
