I like them. Fairly quiet, low dust, great bite. Rotors don't seem to last more than a few years though. Installed power stop rotors on the 05 tahoe & twice on an 01 yukon have worn VERY fast.... They didn't warp but start to thin quicker than OEM and you can see the vents become less and less pronounced way quicker than I'd expect. A little pad sticking and your rotor will be toast before the pad even wears out.. I do brakes bi-annually on my trucks and noticed rotors thinning a bit already on the 15 yukon after 15K. But.. I also towed a lot with them with great performance and they're still working awesome. Going to try and reach out to a old friend locally who has a business called Frozen Rotors. They're cryogenically frozen and built to hold up better... there just more than I'd like to pay at the moment.

I dont do any towing with my '16 Denali but looking to get the slotted/ drilled rotor package from Powerstop. But only plannint to get the rotor and pad combo not the calipers.

This a good idea?

The price and performance are good in my opinion. Having purchased these kits multiple times for multiple vehicles, the longevity of the rotors is sub-par even with seldom towing in my opinion. Consider a better more durable rotor is my suggestion.

What rotor would you suggest?

Got a couple rotors on and the rear passenger caliper. Kept storming anytime I tried working on it. Both rear brake line:hose nuts cracked free with a 13mm open end wrench which was cool. Picking up fresh fluid tomorrow. We'll see if I can't bang out the rest.

Power stop included 2 extra hoses I wasn't expecting. I'll have to look again but not sure where these go?

I had this done on my 2015 Tahoe. The mechanic stated the extra set of brake lines go up where the spare tire is. You will need to drop the spare tire to see where they go. He said it was a pain to get to them but he did.
