Great posts......and I agree with its deposits not actually warping that gives the car the shakes. It's happened twice with mine and I can tell you exactly when it started both times. Having 2 piston calipers would go a long way towards giving us a little more surface area/margin of error in our driving habits. The 2016+ CX-9 has then and I'd bet money they would bolt right up to our 6's. I've been meaning to find some and try it but just haven't made the effort. I'll keep you posted.

If they fit.....would the original fronts fit in the back....Hmmmmmm.

Well, stopping power is mainly judged by the strength of the servo motor. a 2 piston caliper will give you more stopping power, but the weak point would be tire grip.. so.. that would be the first place to start.

The OEM front rotors develop brake judder very early. They are pure garbage. Severe brake judder at less than 20K miles for me. Never had it before.

I replaced my OEM rotors with Pep Boys rotors & pads and haven't had the problem again.

Mazda fan boys will tell you differently, but the OEM rotors are the problem.

It's the pads which cause the warping.

I got yo 100k Miles on my factory brakes and they still had a bit to go. They didnt judder ever. The mazda fanboys you mention just dont moles their braking system like you do.

They'll judder lots if you are abusive on them for sure..

Stoptech is overkill for street use. In my experience, you will NOT experience warped rotors as long as you are not hard on the brakes. Warped rotors = your driving style needs a reality check. Dont treat the streets like a race track. If you can source Textar, Pagid, Jurid or Ferodo brake pads along with zimmermann or textar rotors then that is exactly what I'd get. German OEM brakes are top notch.
Absolutely wrong. I have a 2015 GT and have been through 3 sets of rotors already. Every time they have been changed the pads still have 50% life left. Car is driven 90% on highway with very little brake use and def not heavy use. It’s a problem and apparently has been with a lot of the 6’s!!
