So looks like there is agreement that if your not racing the parts store variety works. Advance auto had the Akebono ceramics (ASP1001) for $39 after online discounts! Most others were asking $75 and up!! Guess I'll give it a shot! Thanks for the input guys!
Ended up getting $50 off and free shipping so guess I'll do the rear too! BTW if you need some parts, spend over $125 and get free ship and $50 off and a coupon for $25 off another purchase w/ codes (JLY8 and DOW28 stacked)!!
