I needed to get my brake pads replaced so i decided to check around to see how much it would be for just the installation as I would be getting the pads on my own. i got price quotes from $130-250 wtf? so anyways i decided i'm just gonna do it myself and then decided to get new rotors as well.

found a good deal on ebc rotors and hawk hps pads

gotta put this...


...on this


will post pics when its done :)

How do you like the performance???

I was thinking of upgrading the rotors and to project mu brake pads once mine get a little more worn.

I only have 8k miles on my box so I still have ways to go...

the picture in the first post is the ebc rotors i got them off autoanything.com for 153 shipped. i also had a coupon so i used that for the hawk brake pads that i got from them too.

cuz i put mine on backwards at first too. then i looked at it and it didnt look right. so i called ebc and they told me that if you sit in the drivers seat the slots should be curling towards you. if you look closely at the first post the rotor has an R stamp on it. I did the install in a poorly lit garage and didnt see it prior to installation.

Slotted and drilled rotors are like directional tires. Look at the rotation and if it doesn't look right then you put them on the wrong sides, no big just switch them. You just don't want to leave them that way. Here's a close up of my wheel you can see the rotor and the direction the slots should be pointing.
