Lots of brake questions...

Ok...I have a 2000 GT. Im going to be getting new brakes soon so I figured id get new rotors and new pads. What kind of rotors are the best? Pads? Also, if people could list sites of where I could buy this stuff that would be awesome. Also, I only need front rotors for my car right?

rotora slotted rotors are awesome... www.motorgroove.com
try to get TRD brake pads if you are stepping things up... mvpmotorsports.com (I think, or trdracing, or trdusa.com)

Also, you are gonna need to have them put new shoes in your rear drums...just tell them to put the performance stuff out front, an dto do the regular routine to the rear, and you'll get new shoes, and hardware...

well on my nissan I have brembo rotors (stock) and some cheapo raybestos pads. But that's only because the brakes I really want cost something like 2K. And the pads that I want are like 200 for the pair.

they are better then normal rotors at racing but on the street there really not much diffrent they'll have a bit more bite and will have less fade in wet conditons

i had slotted and xdrilled on my jetta and i loved them

hey thats a 20 minute phone call
