Not saying your way is wrong, because it's obviously working for you, but I would never recommend someone getting 5th gen rear rotors after what I experienced.
Okay, I will have to take your word on that, as my e-brake stuff was removed prior to purchase, I assume that something was broken when they replaced the axle bearing. I chose not to reinstall/ purchase new e-brake part when I did my brake upgrade.

I then told them that the brackets were misdrilled and they started whining about me redrilling it. "We didn't tell you to do that" no shit Simon, the holes are off I don't need your dumbass to tell me how to fix it, especially when Simon kept arguing that metric and standard threads are the same. For skid plate bolts, sure why not get them standard threads on there and do some light retapping but not for a ****ing brake line. I'm not the only member here with the exact same problem with the high school dropouts at rr racing
Yeah, standard threads vs metric. This was a couple weeks ago. I think something else, not including banjo fittings maybe, but I don't know.

Maybe they got their shit together after I told them what I thought.

The reason I was so shitty with them is that I went back and forth for quite a while about the issues referenced on this site. Simon assured me everything would be fine, and it was not. I'm glad I'm not sporting their shitty company logo.

Wow, I thought I was the only “lucky one” who had his e-brake guts ripped out by a prior owner! Unfortunately, testing the e-brake is an essential part of the yearly inspections here in MA, so NOT having it work was definitely not an option. What pissed me off though, was that the car dealer I bought it from obviously did a fraudulent inspection because the car was inspected with a brand new sticker when I picked it up, and because I never use the e-brake on my automatic trans cars, I never bothered to try it until I was checking stuff out right before the sticker was due the following year. Not too much fun to piece back together, when you have nothing to start with!

Haha, yes it was great, it was originally just the drivers side that was missing, and when I was doing the brake upgrade, the passenger side was all junk anyways, and it was just easier to remove that then to start all over. And you are right, the dealer clearly "overlooked" the e-brakes. Sad. I am fortunate enough to not have to do any inspections here.

With adding my spare tire carrier, full-size spare, hi-lift, sliders, and skids the additional weight on my oem brakes are catching up. Anybody have anymore opinions on the power stop z36 kit after running it for a few months? Will that kit fit on the oem calipers? For $357 on amazon and the positive comments on this thread, seems like an easy move.

Thanks in advance!

I installed the powerstop z36 front rotors and pads (338mm) on my 06 limited 4wd 2 months ago.

After the bedding in process, the braking is light years ahead of the warped factory rotors I took off.

Highly recommend the kit and it bolted straight on with no issues.

Bought mine from Summit Racing and they had it at my door in 2 days vs a week that amazon was quoting and for the same price.
