Hi guys, I have everthing out of my 93 SI and now is going to my 92 DX, but while Im doing the brake swap, Im replacing the discs and pads. Any recomendation on this two items? I like them to look cool as well but not sure if I want them drill. If anybody can provide info for what types of disc should I get,brands, the same goes for pads. I have seen some on ebay at good price but I want to know if there are ok. FINALLY im putting the brakes together, just need help with me selection, brand, prices, where to buy them and what to buy.

Actually the best rotors I have used are the auto zone blanks...they are inexpensive and work very well. You have to worry about cracking with the slotted and drilled rotors.

For pads I would go with EBC greens , they cost a little more but they bite like crazy and create little to no dust at all. they can be picked up at pep-boys .

I have heard nothing but good stuff about the EBC green pads how much do they go for,damm now we talking all 4 corner! LOL . and Yes very important and thanks for reminding my, I want the pads to, if possible, not to make dust or noise. I understand about the problem with the cracking of the disc but are there any disc that looks a little bit cooler than the plain ones. I just love the look of the disc set up thru the wheels since Im planing on buying also new brake cables and planing on paiting everthing nice including brakets, caliper ect...
Thanks gloryhog for your reply.
Comon guys keep it comming on this one.

I have the power hold or power stop cross drilled rotors from sumitt racing. I have had them on the car for about 10-15,000 miles and they still stop really good no cracking or anything.

does anyone knows which company makes the autozone blanks? also any of the chain auto parts offer disc brakes but a little more sporty than the blanks as an option?

EBC green if you need good cold braking and redstuff if you drive at high speed a lot.

just get the ones from autozone with lifetime warranty. Done. I never seen the point in upgrading brakes, unless you have a ridiculously fast car, more than bolt-ons and a cam.

My goal is to have a 300hp to the wheel, at least. I want my car to be a 12 sec street car so breaks are important. but it seems that i will check those autozone ones out.

my buddy with a 400 hp Firehawk runs the ebc rotors and ebc greens ...he loves em ...they have dimples in them rather than drilled all the way through. But get ready to spend a fortune compared to auto zone blanks...If you want to get that serious I would look into www.fastbrakes.com or willwood brakes

I will love to go with the ebc rotors with the dimples NOT the drilled, but boy we talking over $300 on disc alone. I will love to, but still ordering some stuff for my set up. unless i order the rear ones first then do the front later before I get the car out to the street. but still we taling over $150 for the rear disc right? I think I probably going the auto zone way, that way I will use the money to get the good pads and put new brake lines all around. Unless somebody can provided me with a good site that have excellent prices on the EBC dimple rotors.

while on the subject, which one you guys think is better Hawk pads vs EBC pads. which is the best bang for the buck without giving out on peformace. How much would it cost for a kit of front and rear pads... also which model type because it seems that each of the companies have different types of pads for different application.
