cross drilled rotors and ceramics question

hey guys, after calling around i finally found a place to turn my slotted and drilled rotors(carquest) but they have crazy prices on their pads. after shopping around and getting opinons, i am getting some Morse Ceramic brake pads from autozone for 42.99. i was told they wont put out as much brake dust and they are overall better.

let me know waht you guys think as to if you have heard any good or bad from morse or what. also, i was told by oreilly auto parts that they dont even make ceramics for the zx3. carquest said they do, but they want 120 bucks for them, auto zone says they have them for the regular focus which should cross over to the zx3 as the same. let me know, my head hurts.....

personally i'd get EBC greenstuff pads and i'd also stop using those cross drilled rotors (especially if your in need of getting them turned) crossdrilled rotors crack... now your making them thinner which means thier going to crack easier

just my 2 cents

**UPDATE** got these ceramics installed the other day and they are doing great. got my rotors turned as well, i may a few months from now get some new ones, but will wait for now. no noise and no brake dust. i like the pads so far.
