High performance brake upgrades handle the increased power of diesel performance engines and transmissions. Choose rotors designed for increased strength to prevent warping from heat. Warped rotors create chatter and uneven braking. Off-road and on-road vehicles benefit from Custom Diesel’s slotted rotors that provide airflow to reduce heat. Slotting also reduces any water build-up to offer quicker grabbing power. Extra rust resistance is obtained from Cadmium plating on the rotors. When you perform a brake upgrade, use high-quality pads designed to withstand higher heat potentials. Ceramic and poly ceramic pads are a good choice. Check your calipers and replace all brake springs to ensure you get the best results from your upgrades. When purchasing brake parts, pay close attention to the model and year of your vehicle. For example, Powerslot number 126.65086CSL-CSR rotors are not compatible for trucks built before March 15, 1999. Always double check from a build date sticker or your VIN to ensure that the components you are ordering are the correct ones for your vehicle.
