Hearing squeaking noises from the wheels? This may be the wear tabs on the brake shoes saying, "it is time for replacement." Aging brakes can also result in a pulsation from the brake pedal or long stopping distances. Brakes should be inspected every 10,000 miles or any time the tires are removed. They may need frequent replacement such as every 20,000 miles if used in stop and go traffic. Brakes can last longer if the vehicle is used primarily for long highway trips.

Kit specifications:

  • Includes 2 front rotors & a front brake pad set
  • Fits Driver & Passenger Side Front
  • Rotors with 5 lug holes
  • Semi-Metallic brake pads
  • Direct replacements
  • Correct for Teves calipers (used thru production date 5-10-02)
    • See attached picture for caliper reference

For 2002 models you can find the production date of your vehicle on either the outer edge of the driver's front door or on the latch piller that the door closes on.

Note: Jeep used 2 different types of brake calipers on the Grand Cherokee, Akebono, and Teves. This brake pad & rotor kit is only correct for Teves brand calipers. The easy way to tell the difference is if you look at your front and rear calipers and they are different you have the Akebono's in the front. If they all look the same you have the Teves style. This kit is correct for Teves calipers only.

This front brake pad & rotor kit makes a great replacement and has an excellent value over the price of dealer brake pads & rotors.

  • High density friction material for long pad life
  • Less resin content virtually eliminates brake fade and glazing
  • Reduced dusting for both Ceramic and Semi-metallic materials
