Offroad Trailblazers and Envoys

Long lasting brakes

Trailblazer and Envoy related, but not off-road related...

I’ve found threads about stopping power and all that jazz. But what I really want to know is what options people have used and how long they’ve lasted.

If you buy the right pads from autozone you can get a lifetime warranty on them. Just warranty them when they wear out. :scratch:

Yeah, the problem with that, in the fine print...

It's against manufacturing defects and such, not against wear, cause you know, they are supposed to wear out...

Sorta the point of brake pads after all.

Don't play the Walmart return policy everywhere. It's catching up to everyone as it's a part of the reason for price increases. Not the only reason, just a part of it.

I got the lifetime brakes form autozone, replaced them twice. Wear is covered. Go with the ceramic for less dust.

I went with R1concept drilled and slotted rotors with pads about 4 years ago. They still stop on a dime with no brake fade on larger pass descends. Not the best with rust protection though. The cooling ports are starting to get some flaky rust.
