Rear brake upgrade ‘02 2nd gen to 3rd gen

Recommended Posts

I know about upgrading the front brakes on my ‘02 to 3rd gen components, and plan to do so but will I realize any improvements by doing the same thing to my rear disc brakes or do they use the same components as 3rd gens?

Honestly, dollar for dollar since a 02 already has Disc all the way around I would just do the rotor and pad upgrades.

 

After doing the upgrades on all corners in my 02 it stopped as good or better than any 3rd gen I had driven.

 my third generation brakes with ECB yellow pads save me from a freeway a wreck just after the upgrade. A dumb a** cut in front me so close I had to jam the brakes to avoid hitting at 70 mph.  The new brakes grab so hard that the shoulder harness lock engages when the truck threw me forward.  It is  a cheap upgrade especial if you already doing rotors.  just 2 new caliper mounting brackets.
