Default Brakes & Rotors 2012

I have a 2012 4WD SCREW Platinum with 38,000 miles. Getting lots of brake shudder when stopping so need to replace rotors. Brake Pads are not that bad so trying to decide whether to replace pads and rotors on just the front or go ahead and do all 4 wheels while I am at it. I am looking at Brakemotive rotors and ceramic pads or powerstop from autoanything. Brakemotive does not seem to have a 4 wheel kit on the ebay store for my vehicle, just front wheels. I thought that was odd. Lots of good reviews on Brakemotive products for older model Fords but can't find any for newer models. Would appreciate any advice.


Thanks.

My 11 needs rotors at 39k miles so I'll be shopping soon too. The 97 I bought in '99, sold to my dad, now will be my sons truck has 197k on the OE rotors. No brake shudder at all and stops great. We just did pads when due

Edit-scratch that. He did rotors at 165k when he bought a camper to pull. Still pretty good

When replacing rotors do you replace all four or just the fronts. Is it fair to assume that the fronts warp faster than the backs and I might only need to replace the front rotors. Tried to call Brakemotive today. Was on hold for forever finally left a message and got no return phone call. Price and reviews for the brakemotives are positive but am starting to get worried about the customer service.

i only did the fronts. as long as you have plenty of pad/rotor left you dont need to do the rear.
