  1. Personally, I will avoid aluminum at all costs. It corrodes much quicker from electrolysis and galvanic corrosion. It's just not worth the trouble in an automotive environment.
  2. You can do that, but the point of contact is yet another point of resistance. With that being said, you generally need 3 times the surface area of aluminum to copper. In other words. all things other than thickness equal, a 1/4" copper bar will carry the same current (safely) as a 3/4" aluminum bar.
  3. Copper is a better conductor so less material is needed versus aluminum in regards to resistance.

    Need advice on new install.

    We need a goal here. Why are you only concerned about the sub bass? I would tackle that last.

    You know 2000+ people who have used their products and are happy with them? LOL! Clearly, Mike did not receive what was advertised.

    I would try to find OEM parts first. I've also had great success with Power Stop kits from Rock Auto. That's usually what I purchase for my daily vehicles.

    No offense, but I think you're a victim of the Chinese ebay store goods. I've never even heard of Brakemotive, and a simple Google search yields not much other than the Ebay store. A look at the photo of the rotors reveals they're grooved which means they're not machined properly, then a coating is applied over this which means even more high/low spots. I'd look elsewhere in the future.

    They can't be ceramic. Ceramic pads create very little dust and the dust they do make is opaque and hard to see. They also don't squeak or squeal. The only reason you should hear any noises from ceramic pads should be from the wear indicators. Well, that or you have a shim or something else rubbing the rotor.

    Well, I finally got myself a decent beater truck. It's ugly, dirty, and rusty, but the frame and suspension is SOLID, and the mechanicals are all on point! I can finally park the bird!

    Image Dynamics ID10. Try and find the V3. They had 6 mm more Xmax than the V4s do. ID cut them back because they were outperforming the IDQ for a fraction of the price. The V4s are still fine drivers though.
