Why not? They look great and make for cooler braking.

Ahhhh Not unless they are grooved or otherwise damaged. But that brings up another good question for the masses. Can you turn, or should you turn, slotted and drilled rotors?

I did try to look through the wheels, but didn't quite know what I was looking for. I mean I don't know what the pad is "supposed" to look like compared to how it looks at the end of its life.

And I politely disagree with the fluid bleed. I highly recommend getting this done properly and either going with a DOT 3/4 or straight DOT 4.


As far as I am concerned, brakes are THE most important system in the car and I make sure that me and mine are safe when ever we go for a ride.


Good luck!

Thanks a lot. No screech means no worries for now. I don't drive far distances often (my work is 5 mins away from home) so when the screech is consistent i'll schedule an appointment.

DISCLAIMER: I don't think I need new pads as they're still quiet when I brake, minus some squealing that I suspect is from dirt and dust.

I just got a quote from a really reputable shop in my area. They want 1400 dollars to replace all pads and rotors (681 for just the front pair). Labor is 150 (300), parts 531 (1037). Includes repack wheel bearings, replace pads. DOES NOT include refinishing.

Sounds like they want to do it the right way given our brake system is Brembo, but my god is this a joke? Might as well take it to the dealership for that cost. Now i'm confused on what i'll really need to get done and how much it's going to destroy my bank account.

>> Includes repack wheel bearings


Camaro bearings are sealed in the hub, so they can't repack them.



>> DOES NOT include refinishing.


The quote includes new rotors, so there is no need to refinish anything, right?. By refinish do you mean turn the rotors?



I went with stock pads and rotors. New Brembo pads cost me about $200. New stock rotors was about $400. Good quality parts but they are expensive.

Man I really should think about maintenance costs before I go out and buy a track car thanks for sharing.

This is the quote they gave me (see attached). I mean might as well take it to the dealer. Brake Master's told me their pads start at 179 but last time I had it done through them on my Trans Am, the brakes squealed LOUD. I wish Costco did brakes.

Labor Prices look high to me, but I do my own stuff. Just a quick internet search shows how high the parts prices are for the front;

https://www.gmpartsdirect.com/auto-p...nt-brakes-scat

The rear parts look about the same (elevated) price.

Thanks! I didn't know about this website. Maybe I could go about hiring a freelance GM mechanic to do it to save on labor, I really don't know what I need for this. Maybe i'm just overthinking here.

This whole thing is giving me a headache. Either go cheap and have to deal with squeal for the rest of its life, or do it the right way and spend a ton of money in the process.
