Thread: Better front rotors for 2001 Quigley E350?

    Default Better front rotors for 2001 Quigley E350?

    I've got an E350 with the stock Quigley 4wd conversion. Every time I let someone else drive it in the mountains they overuse the brake, and my front brake rotors get overheated and warped. Are there any aftermarket better quality rotors (maybe slotted?) that I can upgrade to in order to solve the warping problem?

    I researched this a lot and ended up going with Stoptech power slot rotors and Hawk pads. They have been doing well.
    If you have rear drums make sure they are adjusted and working properly.

    Ford or GM set up on your hub/rotor assemblies? I have GM on my Q, and want to upgrade when I go SRW (SOON).
    Bendix MKD149 is what is calls for, but not sure what the Hawk # would be?

    Default resolution

    OP here:

    I took my van to advanced 4wd here in town, and determined that my quigley used a chevy one ton front axle from model years 85-91, and that no slotted aftermarket rotors are available.

    See if you can find brembo blanks. Cheap and hold up well to abuse. I got better life span with those on our race cars than I did with any slotted rotors. Stay completely away from anything crossdrilled. That and teach the people you loan rig to about utilizing the lower gears.
