So I've noticed some moderate shaking of the Commander when driving downhill while braking at speeds above 50-55 mph, and I'm pretty sure it's the brake pads and/or rotors that are shot (I'm pretty sure they're still the originals from the factory, since I'm still under 30k on the odometer). I've started doing some research on a "performance" replacement kit, but wanted some input from the XK community about what everyone is using and what brands to avoid, etc.

Thanks-in-advance!

@JeepersXKreepers Powerstop is a good brand.

Thanks!
I'm looking at the options on CarID and there are multiple kits: Z23, Z26, Z36. Any recommendations on which to go with?

Also, having never changed out the brakes myself before, any special tools I should get as well?

THANKS!

@JeepersXKreepers If you go to the Powerstop website it will ask you questions to help you pick the correct kit for your XK.
