    Time for front pads, and likely rotors. Any suggested upgrades? I'm currently running a 10bolt with 3/4t conv. Best brands? Things to consider? Thanks in advance.

    Brakes

    Raybestos makes some slotted rotors and pads to go with them that work pretty good. Really helps keep the dirt out of them. Checker/Schucks/Kragen carries them.

    DO NOT USE WAGNER THERMO-QUIET PADS!!!!

    Had to do a quick front brake job on my Eclipse a month ago, and these were the only pads they had on the shelf for my app. THEY SUCK! I can't even lock it up in a panic stop (non-ABS car). Gave 'em a few weeks to bed-in, they still suck just as bad as the day I installed them. Pedal effort is ludicrous to get a decent stop.
    I can't wait until I can afford another set of Performance Frictions....
