Power Stop rotors and pads

Finally did my first mod. My front break calipers locked up so I decided to just do new brakes all around. I went with the Power Stop cross drilled n slotted rotors with ceramic pads. I got a great deal on them at a local auto store.

These things stop on a dime. The pedal is much more responsive and I feel like i finally have control over the vehicle. I would highly reccomend these to anyone looking to do brakes but not break the bank. Since Brembo is ten minutes down the road I'll probably go that route when these run out.

Next up is suspension(probably OME) and some performance(throttle body, diablo, exhaust) now that I have some way of harnessing the power of a HEMI

Re: Power Stop rotors and pads

I went the EBC drilled/slotted route with Wagner ceramics and love them, but many of the members here swear by the vendor that sells on here too (can't remember the brand ATM). I doubt I'll destroy my EBC's, but if I was ever back in the market, I'd go with the vendor on here.
