By the way... Amazon sells each pair for 45 bucks right now and there's a 30 dollar rebate.
Front and back for 60 bucks :thumbsup:

I wanted to get ceramics but then I found out that ceramics will decrease the life of the rotors and also cause them to warp more frequently.

I'm getting Stillen Cross Drilled Rotors with Stillen Metal Matrix Pads. I know a lot of people that have been running these for thousands of miles with no usual WK rotor warping.

Good luck with whatever you choose.

I just got done installing EBC rotors and pads all the way around on my 04. The stopping power is 1000% better, and very quiet. They were dusty the first week, but seem to be settling down..."Greenstuff 7000 series" is what I'm using up front.

I'll be doing the front of the WK soon too...with thier Ultimax rotors and pads.

Thanks! I'm keeping an eye on EBC, but I need pads in real soon! LOL!

Anyone know what the difference is between the QC1080 and QC1181?

They both have the same description {Front Ceramic fits} on APW and Amazon...
