    looking to spend some time on autox and road courses this year. car is bone stock. any pad upgrade suggestions? How about fluid swaps? I think the rotors will hold up for awhile. Are there any SS line kits?

    Pads, fluid and lines - the classic poor man's brake upgrade! Good choice on this upgrade for your first mods. Be thankful you don't have to worry about blown hydraulic steering pumps like on the '05-10 LXs! The next best autocross upgrades will be 200 treadwear rubber for traction and seat time to learn your Mopar. You won't be the fastest but you'll have a blast and always have a smile plastered to your face.

    LINES
    There's generally been 3 stainless braided line options for the LX platform: Goodridge, StopTech & Russell. I can't say for certain they'll work for you but nothing a simple phone call can't answer. Not like the platform has changed that drastically from '05-21; the calipers and positioning from outliers like Pursuits and AWD are usually problematic.

    FLUID
    For brake fluid just pick your preferred brand of DOT4 with boiling points around 600F dry and 400F wet. Castrol ($$), Wilwood, Motul, Amsoil, Endless, Torque, StopTech, ATE, AP Racing, Project Mu, RedLine, Pagid, Ferodo...

    PADS
    Pads from Carbotech, Hawk DTC, Raybestos ST, PFC, Pagid, Wilwood, StopTech are what you want to hold up to track (road course) abuse. Well worth a call to those manufacturers or race suppliers (like KNS or Porterfield) to see what'd be best for your application. Beware that pricey race pads are not optimal for the street with poor cold performance plus dust and NOISE! For autocross though, most over-the-counter or cheaper "enthusiast" (Hawk, Powerstop, EBC...) metallic pads will give you a bit more initial bite than ceramic/organic but at the cost being dirtier and noisier than stock. The heat build up and fade aren't critical factors like on a circuit.

    Good luck & have fun!
