My car has a Quick Performance 9" and, as far as the brakes go, I'm underwhelmed. The pads ride over the edge of the discs, the flanges that hold the bearings are thin and deform easily, and it seems the rotors are proprietary? I have the non-parking brake 11" discs. It uses the same front caliper as what's on the car which is a ghetto design as the caliper is not properly captured as it would be by the factory knuckle but I digress. Ideally I should replace this rotor as it's been machined quite a bit by the backing plate though I am left with 1 extra good pad from this brake job if I decide to kick the can down the road). QP says it's their own design, but it like the axles has 3 lug patterns drilled into it. It claims to be an 11" disc as well. I'm going to take a spare LT1 4th gen Camaro rear disc with me to compare as those are 10.9". It's been ground down below spec so it can't be turned. Does anyone know what application QP bases that rear rotor on or do they straight up make them from scratch? Has anyone found a larger rotor to better fit the pads? And has anyone found something better to hold the bearings in? Maybe an old OE Ford part that's sturdier or just another company that makes aftermarket 9" housings better?
