    Whatever you do, do NOT EVER get Duralast Gold Ceramic....within an hour after washing my car, my wheels are already sprayed with dust... I may try the Monroe or just go with Hawk pads.... Hope Monroe's brake pads are better than their shocks

    I have their front struts. Worlds better than OEM.

    if you don't want to buy the fancy smancy high dollar pads look around locally for Bendix pads. Very good pad for the money. They cost a little more than ordinary pads but are well worth the extra coin.

    I use monroe sensa tracs on my truck and they've been great on it. I've beat the crap out of that truck mudding it and hauling about twice as much shit in it as it was designed for and they've held up great.

And I never had stock rear shocks, so I wouldn't be able to compare with OEM except up front, and I went straight to the HD's up there.

    EDIT: and, and, and, and, and sorry for all the ands

    Dont worry about it. I know people who installed the Koni's and had them fail after just a few miles! Shit happens. I will tell you Monroe warranties them for life.

    Haha, I may be up there part-time this fall. I gotta finally finish my Bachelor's in Civil Engineering. I have an associate's in drafting, and just finished an associate's in land surveying, so I might just have enough to get me started with my bachelor's by now I'll see what I can do about the slapping

    I did a quick check on my rotors and there is a lip at the edge of the rotors. Like starting from the inner circle is all smooth until you get to the edge. Once you get there it dips down and then back up at the edge precisely. Feels like the rears are the ones that are stopping my car while the fronts sometimes scrape. I was wondering if I could just get some cheap ass pads and put those on there until I get enough money to get good replacements? What are your thoughts?

    I threw a set of Wagner QuietStop ceramic pads on the rear two weeks ago as my EBCs were toast. I have a feeling the previous owner did brakestands with my car when he went to the track. I put 17k on the car since I bought it last year and they already went? That's my reasoning.

    Yeah I think I am going to do that too. Just head up to Advanceauto and buy some cheap ass wagner pads and throw them on there for the time being. I also am going to do the brake fluid too since that has not been done yet. I just hope the rotors are okay for the pads. I mean what is the worst that can happen? I don't expect to leave the Wagner pads on there for a long time, and plus it has to stop better then "no-pads" haha

    Yeah. I just did a "pad slap" on mine since I didn't have the time to cut my rotors. Oh well. I can do it another time.

    Yeah I can't cut my rotors either since they are drilled/slotted. I am just hoping they are not warped, or do not have gashes in them. Even if they do I still need new pads. The car needs to be able to stop...period haha...

    Drilled/slotted rotors can be cut. But I agree. STOPPING is MOST IMPORTANT.

    wagner isn't a cheap ass pad.....they're a quality brake pad. Advanced cheapies go by wearever. I don't doubt that ebc and hawk stuff is top notch but for 99% of the people out there wagner or bendix pads will more than do.

    Ah you misunderstood. I meant cheap as in "low price". I would rather stick with EBC if I can because it is what I have been running for the past 4 years or so. I really wish I knew some more opinions on the "Yellow-stuff" pads though. I would like to know if they are really better, or worse then the "Red-Stuff".

    they're not as cheap as you're thinking though I don't think. ebc yellowstuff $97 for fronts on the goat...wagner $80. Rear ebc $78 wagner $64. Wearevers can be had for $24 and $21. I'm not arguing with you.... I'm just saying that wagner is a premium pad and not a budget pad.
