Long story short my parts guy is gone. sigh... So I posted on the Kia forums and FB groups about my wifes 2014 kia sorento but haven't gotten back a lot of suggestions. Someone suggested this site:

https://brakeperform...inc-coating.php

Someone else posted a link to Amazon. Anyone here have recommendations? The above link looks cool, but I don't care about looks I just want quality stuff. TIA

Found these on Rock Auto. They have good reviews on Amazon and are rated as premium.

Can't really go wrong on a daily driver. Unless you're looking for high performance street/race pads, I usually just stick with the cheap stuff and it works plenty fine.

If it just needs pads, I go with OEM from an eBay discounter.

I've used those cross-drilled PowerStop kits from Rock Auto and they do work well.

BUT... if the rotors are really worn or you have uneven pad wear, you should investigate calipers/seals/pistons.

Here's a document intended for brake techs on the importance of replacing seals: http://www.ucx.com/d.../squareseal.pdf

That option looks to be $215+. I wouldn't go slotted/drilled on a daily unless you really insist on the look.

Rockauto is great unless you're getting multiple items from multiple warehouses. Then you foot a lot of shipping charges. I'd probably go for the https://www.rockauto...3294355&jsn=885 (if it's the V6). Half the price, coated rotors, decent enough pads. Could check Oreillys if you need it today, otherwise click away.

Well i'm right in the middle of my brake job and i'm stumped. I can't get the caliper pins back in after I greased them. Here is a link to a post I made on the kia forum. Maybe someone here is familiar?

I've come across that myself with various vehicles. Usually is a hydralic/pneumatic lock where there is either grease in the bore that is preventing you from inserting it, or the new grease is preventing air from escaping and allowing you to insert the pin.

This^^

Im guessing that the pin should have a little rubber seal on the inserted end. Try to get the grease out of the caliper, and apply your grease to the pin, trying to keep the grease from creating hydraulic pressure that stops the pin from bottoming out.

Take a drill bit by hand that is about the same size and spin it by hand a few times to pull the grease out. Wipe off the pin dry and see if it installs ok.

If it does, lube one side of the pin, insert and spin it a few times to work the grease all the way around.

Marls got this fixed by inserting the rubber pin dust boot first, then the pin.
