Question about Rotors and Pads

I changing the rotors on my truck this weekend, and there is a lot of different parts our there that "will fit" Does anybody have any ideas on what Rotors are OK and which ones are Great. I am thinking the Standard Brembo's will be nice. I also know that the local pep boys and auto zone have their own brands, which are a little cheaper but carry the lifetime warranty. Any thoughts!

Life is cheap. Use cheap brake parts.

Ferodo pads on brembo rotors you'll do a spit take with your Starbucks.

Just found Brembo Rotors on Ebay for $20 brand new... shipping wasn't to bad.

I like Dunkin Dognuts. Starbucks is like drano, and makes my eyebrows twitch. Besides the girls at Starbucks think all Land Rovers are Range Rovers....

So I located Brembo Rotors Dirt cheap for all 4 wheels, got pads and hub seal kit for a fair price. I have done brakes on all my vehicles so far. I have never done them on the Defender. I have the Haynes manual, and it looks fairly easy. 2 quick questions:

1. On average how long should this take with 1 person (my wife will help me bleed the brakes)? I am guessing it is about 1.5 hours per set....

2. Do I need any special tools before I start the job?

Any help would be great.

Tom -- Is the 52mm for the hub? If so, there is a tool that is made by LR (and aftermarket) that is designed specifically for this. You can order one from AB; http://www.roverparts.com/Parts/606435.cfm or various other sources... Some locals have them too, I think Dan (ini88) has one.

Tom, I have that hub tool but its a bit mangled up because I let my friend use it to set an a-arm ball joint the other weekend. Bobeck can attest to that!

You are more than welcome to it, You can come into the city to get it, or I will be heading out to NJ tomorrow night as I head upstate for the weekend.

52mm is the right size too if you can fine one. maybe Sears or Harbor Freight? I bought a 52mm years ago from some Jeep website, so maybe if you can source a Jeep type store in NJ you could get on, because they use that socket on their axles too.

I am heading upstated for the weekend myself (Roscoe). I will order one as driving into the city and back will cost more than the part itself... Thanks for the offer though.

I have done that in the past on some different cars. I did not know if that would work on the 110. I bought the $10 part from Atlantic British.... The one question that was not answered in the thread is:

How long does this take on average (brakes front and rear). I am going to do it in my driveway...
