I'm curious if these replacement pads are a new design, or if they are just putting another set on. Surely, just putting another set will not fix the problem.

Thanks Resume for posting! We appreciate it!

Anyone know if the 12k mile cap applies?

Razorecko - When I drive, the squeal sounds like it's coming from the front but if I hang my fat head out the window, it's really coming from the rear.

Getting rotor cuffed?

I'm underwhelmed. I have screeching on all four corners and scored rotors. So only replacing the rear pads with the same crappy pads that are on there now would be a non-starter. I thought the SRT engineers said the rotor issue would also be included in this TSB? Trying to impress the new minder at Cerberus with their thrfty ways?

Mango - Do you know if the stock pads have a different part number than the ones in this TSB (68034993AA)? I know you changed your brakes so you might know.

Thats the first thing I wondered - Are these different pads or just another set of the same. Surely Chrysler realizes that if this is common enough to requre a TSB, that putting the old style back on won't help.

Ok my dealer says they are different pads than the factory pads on there now.
68034993AA vs. 6803610AB

I'm having them installed next Tuesday so we'll see if this does anything.

The 12 month/12K mile warranty cap does apply. Luckily, I let my dealer know of the problem when I had 11,970 on the odometer.

Also, if you brakes are scored, tell the dealer, and have them replace them, as long as you are within the 12 month/12K miles
