Brakes, need replaced

I need to replace the rotors + pads all the way around on my prelude.

It's a 94 S, non-ABS...

Where is the best place to go for these parts? Drilled/Slotted rotors the best?

I got cash, just looking for the best purchase.

Should I goto autozone, napa, ebay?

Re: Brakes, need replaced

drilled rotors are known for cracking, as mentioned ^^^

i've had the same brembo blanks all around for 4+ years now, no problems. with your choice of pads.

Re: Brakes, need replaced

just go to autozone. get ceramic pads and any OEM replacement blanks will work just fine. and as stated, don't get drilled/slotted rotors. slotted are ok. but really serve no purpose unless you your breaks get very heavy use like in autocrossing.

Re: Brakes, need replaced

I decided on going to Advanced Auto, The total price for everything, front rotors and pads, rear rotors and pads, was $148...

I wanted ceramic, but it would have been a bit more and they would have had to have had ordered it, and i NEED brakes lol.
