Update

Installed it last night. What a giant pita. Wish I had read u need a pad caliper spreader tool. Doing it with pliers and my hands was way harder then it needed to be.

Went out and bedded them in. Feel normal. Feel like stock so far. The big issue I found is my good year run flats are falling apart. I had read about this but hoped it wouldnt happen. Well 25k miles and the fronts are trash. Going with Toyo prizes st2 275/315 setup on sat morning at local shop.

Im def not happy. 2 half used stock rear run flats for sale at sick price in for sale forum shortly.

Easiest way to push the Pistons back.in is to.remove the caliper from the Jeep as its only 2 bolts... That way it gives you a better grip and you can do.it with your hands bro..... That's how I did mine....

Yeah there is not enough room to push the Pistons back in while the caliper is still mounted on top of the Rotor bro....

Squeeze piston back in with old pads is much easier and it keeps the ones from the other side of the rotor from moving back out.

that was the way i did it. i removed caliper from hub, left old pads in there and stuck a plier inbetween them and opened it up. it pressed both sides back in. what was annoying is my fronts were really pressurized. moving one side just let the otherside squeeze out. finnaly i got the plier idea and it worked well. i can see it being cake with the right tool.

whatever though, worked out in the end.

and whats the deal with the stupid rubber band on the hub? i laughed when i saw it. its not like the rotors going anywhere once the tire is mounted.

The o-ring is for when it is going down the assembly line and does not need to be reused.

I just purchased Stop Tech Cyro-Sport Stop Drilled rotors and Stop Tech pads. Has anyone used both? Do they fit right in to the stock Brembo set up?

If you ordered the right stuff, they should.

I bought them from Tire Rack and entered in my vehicle info. So it should work out.
