    I just plugged in "which autozone rotors" into search and got a bunch of threads w/rotor recommendations.

    What's your budget on them though? Can you go with slotted or are you trying to stay inexpensive. Warping the rotors on these cars is a given. Torque them to spec and that should help a little. I think most people crank the lugs to tight and that leads to warpage but most rotors are going to warp. I would guess if you move up to slotted or slotted and drilled it would help but I haven't done that yet. I just learned to live with it. Mine really aren't that bad but I make sure to not overtighten the lugs and don't have many high speed stops on them ( a few though ). Good luck and just do some searches. You'll figure out which ones people have the best luck with.

    I went with the autozone duralast rotors. I also went with hps hawk pads. You can find the pads on ebay for like $75. I did alot of research befor i bought the rotors and pads. Every one told me this was perfect and its not that much money.

    I went with the Baer Eradispeed rotors, with Hawk HPS pads, however if a budget is in mind, this is not the way to go.

    I put on a set of Brembo "OEM blank" replacement rotors. Got them from TireRack, I think they were $65 each. They've been on the car for 20,000 miles now and have been wonderful.

    They do nothing for appearance, they look stock. But they are functional and reliable. I'm running OEM GM pads with them.
