Im thinking about getting this to cut down on the brake dust on my front wheels so they stay cleaner. Does anyone have any experiance with this kit ? It got good reviews just wanted to see if anybody has it or can give any opinions thanks Tim

You can do buick encore rotors and caliper brackets for less... just have to drill out the knuckles.

If your only issue is brake dust, change the pads.
Well the kit says it's 8 pounds lighter than the stock set up and the drilled slotted rotars are nice.

Drilled and slotted aren't necessary if you aren't doing track days or really spirited driving.

I too have noticed the stock pads are a bit dusty.

I guess ill just look for new pads then. I really like the powerstop stuff i have the tow brakes on my trailblazer.

Get new pads and ceramic coat your wheels. There’s lots of vids on YouTube on how to do it properly.

Brake dust was terrible on my 2012 Cruze when it was new and the rotors wore down much too soon. I replaced the rotors with grooved and dimpled ones with quality pads and both the dust and wear problems are gone.
