New brakes?

I've noticed a loss in braking ability lately and am looking to replace them. I want to get drilled and/or slotted rotors, what do I need to purchase to do this, just new pads? new rotors? or both. Thanks for any input

Also what do you recommend with drilled/slotted rotors and any vendors feel free to chime in

Pick any rotor you like and use the OEM pads. They are excellent.

We have the Granatelli Rotors in stock and at a good price. They come Slotted and dimpled (not drilled) and with a silver or black Zinc coating to prevent rust on the rotor hats.


We also have great pricing on OEM and/or Hawk pads. Please feel free to call, PM or email me anytime with questions or for pricing.

Best regards,

Tyler

Have you checked your pad wear sensors?

You are also due for a fluid change if you have the original stuff in there.

I have been told if you buy new pads you either want to have your existing rotors turned (flattened out if enough material is left) or buy new rotors. I have also been told not to use old pads on new rotors.

My dealer mechanic also strongly suggests changing the pad pin kit every time the pads are changed.
