I need front brakes so I'm looking into going with drilled and slotted rotors and ceramic pads. I dont mind spending the extra for it but my money is limited, what do you guys recommend for a guy on a low budget?
4 Wheel Parts and Summit Racing carry the "PowerStop" brand in kits. They're pretty inexpensive, being about $225 or so per axle. That's rotors and pads for both sides. I've seen guys here using them, but I'm still not 100% sold. Those are slotted and drilled rotors, with PowerStop's ceramic pads.
I'm due brakes this month too, and I'm leaning towards Wagner rotors and Thermoquiet pads, or EBC rotors and GreenStuff pads.
I had good luck with my Explorer and NAPA's Ceramix pads. They were quiet, gave off almost no dust, but they were a little more abrasive than a semi-metallic pad. Under real light braking, especially when cold, you could feel them initially.
