Rotors/pads

About a month ago, i asked you guys about a squeaking noise in my front brakes. given the information you guys provided, I agreed. And recently I noticed that at high speeds(and lower speeds) that I can feel a vibration through the brake pedal and even steering wheel.

I figured I could use new pads and rotors. I got a quote and the guy said it's around $500 for high performance ceramic pads and upgraded rotors +install (just the front). I figured I could do the install myself, hearing it was easy.

My controversy is finding good brake pads. I'm going with Powerslot slotted rotors. I need your opinions on pads and intensity of install if you've done it. Thanks

Looked at the hawk ceramic pads and some customers on AM said that the clips/springs are poorly attached to the pads and others say they come loose

I run that setup currently and I'm ok with it. I don't like the Hawk pads I think they're too thick.

How's the stopping power compared to the stock 11.5" rotors?
