not unheard of on these beasts. do yourself a favor and get the R1Concepts drilled and slotted with some ceramic pads. :wink: they are an easy install, too btw.

not that bad

$65- pair of front blank rotors
$105- pair of front rotors (D/S or just Slotted or just Drilled)
$46.80- pair of rear blank rotors
$86.80- pair of rear rotors (D/S or S or D)

then whatever pads you want to buy.

PFFFFFT no brainer....
plog FTW! lol, BTW, all said and done (springs/struts/misc hardware/alignement) you'll be in the $800 range (KYB AGX/decent springs/etc...) well.. you might get a better price on parts, but for us, that's about what it will run to do it right ;)

I have decided to go plog and pulley for the time being. When i do the springs I wanna be able to do the whole setup at once and not have to keep going back. I am gonna have to keep shopping around for the KYB AGX cause I can get a better price from 3800performance than I can get from Carquest at my price which is kind of ridiculous.

My front rotors are pretty much shot at 32K miles...I bought EBC slotted rotors and ceramic pads, which is the only way to go!

I put Centric Posi Quiet Pads and Centric Rotors on my cars and my customer's cars, and they are really nice, and no issues. They even have a coating on the rotors that prevent the ever famous rusting on these cars.

Very very few people have ever accomplished warping a street style rotor. More often than not "warpage" is because of uneven pad buildup on rotor from JUNK pads, or improper bedin.

Get yourself some good blanks from Autozone (probably equal if not better quality than those ebay cheapos) and some Hawk pads dependent on app (HPS for daily driving, etc) and call it a day. Leave the EBC pads to ricers
