Looking for some advice on upgrading all four brake rotors and pads on my 2008 Impala LTZ. Was wondering if Performance Brake Upgrade Kit; Incl. 4 Silver Zinc Plated Cross-Drilled and Slotted Rotors w/Z16 Ceramic Scorched Brake Pads would be any good? I'm open to suggestions.

We used the EBC regular rotors ( all 4) and green pads on the front and red pads on the rear and a easy install. flowed the recomended brake in and we are 100% happy with EBC brakes. the car now has 7000 miles on the brakes and 0 problems. Looking to use EBC brakes on my wife van.

Cross-Drilled and Slotted Rotors are just a tad bit of over kill for the street use. Just my 2 cents

I have Brembo rotors, Hawk HP pads, and Goodridge Stainless Steel Brake Lines on all four corners and I think the setup is great.

From what I've heard, drilled rotors aren't the best for the street, as they're more prone to cracking. A lot of guys on here run the EBC pads and like them.

Thank you all for the replies. It's still up in the air as to what I may end up getting.

Brembos on your 07 LT, wow. How much did that run you? I would like Brembos, but too costly for my comfort zone. I go with EBC Sport rotors and red stuff pads myself.

brembos are pricy but fuck are they good!!!! Mixed with hawk pads......u can't go wrong.

The only thing I don't like is that hawk pads can get a litle noisy....

ATE Rotors look pretty nice and Canadian Tire has them on sale from time to time. They weren't on sale when I had my brakes changed so I just bought the cheaper Qualis rotors and Monroe brake pads.

Well crap, I bought the stuff like four years ago and I'm having trouble remembering where I got it from. I checked my Tirerack history and that's where I got the pads, but my Ebay history only lets me go back to 2011. I can get some pics but they just look like normal rotors.

As far as I remember they weren't crazy expensive, they are just plain rotors.

According to Brembos site, the front rotors are Part Number: 08.8463.10, and the rears are: 09.B535.10. It also shows that the fronts and rears are the same for all trims.

Ok, so I looked at my rotors last night and I didn't see the Brembo stamp, so I am really wondering if I have them or not. I'm gonna have to do some sleuthing and see if I can find out what I actually have.

What kind of driving do you do? Why not go with the best pads, good rotors (blanks should be fine), and then also throw in Stainless steel brake lines?
