I have a 2000 Dakota SLT. I do alot of freeway driving. The brake rotors warp within 4 or 5 months. I've tried replacing them and turning them with no improvement in rotor life. Anyone out there have any experience in finding a good rotor or other solution to this problem? Thanks!

are your rear brakes adjusted right. the rears might not be engauging right and making your front do all of the work.

Are you torqueing the wheels with a torque wrench? Too tight on the lug nuts will cause warping.
Yeah what he said. I tighten mine 90 ft. lbs. max, no problem with warping going on 10k miles

Thanks for the suggetions!

I'll double check the torque and also check the rear adjustment. I'll look into the stainless steel rotors too! Thanks for the suggestions!

ww.prostop.com try these out. cross drill, or sloted, either one is great. i have those on the front and the ssbc ones on the back. yes i bought the conversion kit, i like it too. no problems at all so far for me with the waroing issue. i would also upgrade the back shoes too. make sure the adjustment star is working the way it should.

after resurfacing your rotors, get a quality set of pads. shitty pads chew up rotors. get some performance friction carbon metallics, or some Hawk pads.

pads are the biggest player in braking. not rotors.
