Re: in need of new brake rotors

well for the most part the back brakes only do 40% of the breaking and the fronts do 60%. I have a lot of times put brand new routers on the front and just had the rears turned, got really good pads for the front and ok ones on the back to save money. As long as ya just do the DD stuff and don't go auto XIng it should be fine. W/E you do DO NOT cheap out on the pads and grease up the bearings while your doing the rest of the stuff.

Re: in need of new brake rotors

hey dude go for some brembo blanks..they are awesome..and make sure u get new upper and lower sliding bolts and lube them properly..dont bother with all this cross drilled and grooved crap..they are just noisy, expensive and wear out ur brake pads quicker

Re: in need of new brake rotors

back brakes do more like 15 to 25 percent on cars. so cheap pads and rotors for the back and quality for the front like raggy said. you cant really grease up the bearing on the lude unless you want to press them out lol

Re: in need of new brake rotors

Slotted and drilled rotors are noisy? Have a sound clip or video or something to prove that?

Re: in need of new brake rotors

Get Brembo blanks if you aren't concerned with looks.
I have Powerslot rotors because i got a sik deal on them. Matched with Goodridge stainless steel brake lines, AEM pads, new calipers, new brake master cylinder my Prelude brakes outbrakes 90% of cars out on the streets. You literally just tap the brake pedal and my Lude lunges and stops lol!

the slotting in them causes it... the slotting is used to cut away glazing that might have occured to the pad and to keep fresh pad exposed and also vent away gases

Re: in need of new brake rotors

Don't get testy. I was just asking how it was louder. Thanks for answering ludeguy. How much louder are we talkin here?
Like so loud that you'll never press the brakes with the window down again? (I'm sure its not that loud)

Re: in need of new brake rotors

Personaly I wouldn't ever go with andysautosport, have too many friends and coworkers with bad experiences from them. I used importrp.com. The guy who runs it, is named John and he is also a prelude owner. He's a member of preludeonline. He also is on his aim and is real good with any help/questions you have. I got brembo blanks for 40 per rotor from him.
