    Best rotors & brakes for my f-body...

    I desperatly need new front and back rotors because mine are warped to all shit... I want cross-drilled and slotted....Zinc washed would be nice also but not neccesary....Also would be nice if they were bigger then the stock sizes.... How are the EBC ones?????

    Any info on any brakes would be good also... I think the hawks HPS were my choise but do i really want the hawks HP????

    Any info on brakes and rotors would be great!!

    If you're dead set on drilled / slotted rotors, then get Brembo. I believe the holes are cast into the rotor, making them less prone to stress cracking. I have the plain non-drilled Brembos and with over 10,000 miles they're still unwarped. Go with any good ceramic pad except for the ones made by a company called 'Satisfied'. Hawk, EBC, Akebono are all good pads. If you're going to upgrade, install stainless steel brake lines: they'll give you better braking feel and a firmer pedal.

    I've got Hawk HPS pads which are an agressive street compound and I love them. I've got the brembo rotors too, and they're the balls.

    i was going to get brembos but the guy at the shop told me most of his customers prefer the baer brakes. so i got the baer eradispeed rotors and they take a beating. no warping and have had them for almost 2 years. the car is a daily driver so probably around 20 G miles.

    I'd go with the Baer Eradispeed as well...once my std. baer rotors die I'm going with the eradispeed 2 - the 2 piece rotor with the machined billet hat....they're pricey, but worth it. Also if you drive hard, definitely consider getting your rotors cryogenically treated....for about $20/rotor it's definitely worth it. I've had my Baer rotors and rear gears treated, if I had the $$ I would have had my engine done as well. Read up on it...it's something to consider.
