My 99 XP8 has the baer front brake kit on it. Needing to get the brakes done asap and had a few questions. First is the rotors. I havn't had the tome to pull the wheels but from what i read cobra front rotors will work is this correct? Friend of mine took a rough measuerment and says they are 13'' rotors. next are the pads. Talked to baer and they gave me the specs anyone have any suggestions on what company to talk to about pads. They told me any performance place could get them, they are $340 from baer wich is a little steep.

Thanks

Joe

I'm not sure exactly what kit you have. Baer doesn't make anything for the 2nd gens that I know of. And the big brake kit that was originally on the saleen explorers was recalled and replaced with the regular explorer brakes.

Spoke with baer and a kit was offered for a limited time but it was for AWD trucks only. my truck originally had the saleen brakes but as you mentioned they were recalled.
