  1. Is there Reviews on all the Rotor/Brake Options available?

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2020
    Trying to search the forum for the generally regarded "best" option to replace the pads and rotors on my 2013 GC with the HD Brakes. Rock Auto Has Centric, Raybestos and Powerstop. My wife is the daily driver (who is maddeningly has 2 modes: accelerating or stopping) But the big concern is the...
  2. Brake pad & rotor preferences

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2020
    Need to replace pads & rotors on the front, 2010 Grand Caravan, 4.0 w/ tow package (heavy duty brakes? Not sure, but suspect so.) There were after-market grooved rotors on the car when I bought it, and I'd like to go to standard rotors, but a good quality one. Also, I prefer a brake pad that...
  3. 2005 Grand Caravan: After market wheels pressing on caliper with new pads and rotors

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    Our local tire shop (Les Schwab) has a deal where if you buy wheels and snow tires from them, they will swap them annually for free. So, last spring when I was taking our new snow tires off, they had some used wheels that they said would fit my car and I bought them. They worked great for the...
  4. MonsterBrakes Canada - Cross Drilled Rotors

    3rd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1996-2000
    Just a heads up. ebay seller MonsterBrakes in Canada If you buy cross drilled rotors from them, they are NOT like the picture. There are only half the holes cross drilled as the picture suggests. I've not seen cross drilled rotors with so few holes drilled. I guess they save money that way...
  5. Rear Rotor 2006 GCV

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    I am trying to change the rear pads and rotors on my 2006 GCV and the rear passenger rotor is not coming off. I have removed the caliper but I have not tried releasing any tension that may be caused by the emergency brake. Does anyone know if this could be the cause or if I just need some...
  6. Brake Squeak Advice

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2020
    Hi All, My front brakes have been making a squeak noise when stopping at slow speeds. I have taken the brakes apart, cleaned everything, greased the guides and the back of the pads. The damn squeak is still there. Any ideas?
  7. 2003 Front Brake Grinding on left side after driving awhlie.

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    Hi, I looked in the other posts but didn't see anything like what I am experiencing. My 2003 Grand Caravan (155,000 miles) had the front rotors and ceramic pads replaced by me. I've done this before. Anyway, this replacement was done last summer, about 8-9 months ago. Everything has been fine...
  8. Just bought a 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT last tuesday, question about brakes.

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2020
    I have only owned my van for a week, so far I LOVE IT! I have heard horror stories about the brakes on the 2008 Chrysler Vans. Is there anything I can do to stop it? I try to brake lightly, but is there stronger brakes I can buy? I love the van and hope that it holds up. Thanks
  9. Storing brake rotors

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2020
    I'm going to be replacing the brake pads this summer on a 2010 T&C and I was looking at replacement rotors. The rotors I have may or may not be too worn to turn (don't know for sure, haven't gotten them measured, and didn't see too much point in doing so until the brakes needed replacing). My...

  11. Warped Rotors?

    Suspension, Brakes, Steering, Tires & Wheels
    I am running an 03 Caravan with about 120k on the clock. I had to replace the front pads at around 80k which I understand is not unusual. So far, they have been great. The last few months though, the brakes feel fine when starting off cold, but, after a few km I can feel a definite pulsing...
