New Brakes

So I am going to need new brakes soon and was looking on here and alot of you guys said if you get new brakes you should get new rotors as well so I was lookin around and I know that ceramic brakes are the best way to go or brake dust and what not so I found this package and was wondering if I should get it or not??

So any help would be nice! Thanks!!

Hmm it seems a little cheap to me. I'd look into Hawk HPS pads and Ford Genuine/ Racing Rotors. Look at American Muscle, or ask Jon at NQS performance.

If you have a V6 look at the GT upgrade. You need 17 inch wheels to clear the rotor. But I've noticed a huge difference.

If they are bigger rotors then you will notice a difference....because the GT brakes will be made to stop by with the added weight of the GT vs V6 (granted its not a lot if weight BUT it is still more weight)

Re: New Brakes

I have that exact kit. I put it on over two years ago. I give them an A+ rating. Minimal dust, minimal wear so far, no rust, ect..

Yes, same ones. Power Stop stamped on the pads. Rotors are zinc coated. I installed brand new calipers same day also. They work really, really good. I have no complaints at all.

Reminds Me-
You know what I did was, research the seller ratings and read what every customer said who purchased the exact same kit. I saw that they sold hundreds of them with a very high sellers rating. Then I read what people said about the brake kit after they installed it.
