I wanted to change out my rotors and brake pads on my 03 Disco (when it only had 25,000K miles ...back in December 2007).
Reason? the brakes squeeled a bit intially- the LR service dept at the dealership said that was common.
Well, I hated the fact that in the mornings, my truck will squeel initially during those first few brakes...it was embarassing.
I also noticed that the front rotors had a lip on them.
So, I researched and bought 4 drilled/ slotted rotors called DBA gold rotors from www.ExpeditionExchange.com
Additionally, I purchased 4 kevlar pads to withstand the heat of the rotors. OEM pads on drilled/slotted rotors will wear out very quickly.
After the install, I can immediately tell the difference in performance overall in braking power.
I would highly recommend this setup to all. Disco Mike should get the credit cuz he is running this setup on his Disco.
