I'm about to install SS Brembos on my 2LT. I'm trying to decide if I should use the stock SS rotors or upgrade the rotors as part of the install.
What are your driving/performance goals? If you're planning on taking the car to the track, then RacingBrake rotors make a world of difference not only in fade-free stopping power because they run cooler under hard braking conditions, but also in just about every other area of performance because they're about 6 lbs lighter each than the stock rotors. Removing unsprung rotating weight (i.e. wheels, tires, brake rotors) is the most important and performance-improving weight to remove.
If you're not planning on going to the track then the stock SS brakes are more than good for the street.
