    Save money elsewhere. Don't go cheap on brakes.

    Call Edwin at RaceShopper.com and order some SP Performance slotted rotors and Hawk pads. Great prices, amazing products, and you'll get your stuff shipped fast.

    Also, adjust your rear drum brakes because they probably need it.

    They dont look to bad but it seems a little to good to be true. 110 for cross drilled and slotted rotors and pads is really cheap. I would wait a little while and get EBC brakes or another good brand. I would just be worried that they will warp or something.

    My family usually gets brake parts from autozone. The duralast stuff seems pretty good.

    brembo blanks FTW! drilled and slotted are for looks nowadays due to pad material advancements.
