    I am getting ready to change my rotors and brakes. I am going to put on slotted/drilled rotors. What are good brake pads to use with those types of rotors?

    I would upgrade to the C5 braking package, go to umiperformance.com they sell them there.

    Lots of people run Hawk pads.. I used stock AC Delco parts when I did my D/S rotors.

    i'd stay away from slotted + drilled... you'll get less braking performance than if you get the same rotor plain.
    Unless you want it for show/bling purposes, though.
    As for the pad selection, depends on your application... is it mainly for street ?

    Hey where do you get the calipers that say "CAMARO" or "SS" on them.. are they just a decal.. or do you have to buy a new caliper.??

    There just decals. It's just that Corvettekid82 is way too damn good at polishing and his calipers look aftermarket.
