    id double check with them before you bid. the pic that i see with that auction for 98-02 Camaro has a 4 bolt pattern. Camaro have a 5 bolt pattern. ask, check and verify before you bid for better piece of mind.

    as for pads, i've used Bendix (spelling) Brake Pads for both my old 95 z28 i had and for the 2000 SS i have now and have never had a problem. if you are not going to go with new rotors you usually can have yours turned once maybe twice before you will have to purchase new rotors.

    Get ceramic brake pads. they'll keep your rims alot cleaner. I didn't really notice any improved braking but the stock t/a brakes are pretty impressive anyway.

    Do the OEM C5 pads fit in your calipers? I know they do on the GTO so I assumed they might in yours. They are a great low-cost factory way to seriously upgrade your braking.

    Get any ceramic pads. I got the cheapest ceramic pads Pep Boys had and they work great with little to no dust.

    i have hawk pads and brembo rotors and they stop on a dime.

    hawk pads do leave quite a bit of dust, but any ceramic pads will eliminate that.

    $160 for pads all around
    $250 for the rotors all around
