New brake rotors

I need to replace my rear barkes and rotors. I'm looking at the centric blank rotors or the power slotted but most likely the centric. Any suggenstions on pads for daily use and occasional autocross. Also my fronts still hae 50% pad and the roters are good. Should I replaces the front pads at the same time with the same kind ?

well i usually like to do fronts and rears at the same time, id go with ebc green stuff pads, and the rotors that i have loved and never have had a problem with are DBA 4000 series. just my 2 cents

What is the avg cost now days with the inflated prices to do a full four wheel brake job. Parts that is, not to pay someone? What about for the parts you listed bobbin?

well with brakes my philosophy is u get what u pay for, why cheap out with safety. dba rotors all around ur looking close to 400 a lil above i think, and teh pads around i think are about 150ish

correction for the DBA 4000 rotors it is $530 for both front and rear, mind you these brakes i have used on a gto, never gave 1 problem. the ebc green stuff is $142 so u get the idea, but like i said with brakes u get what u paid for. power slots which are 150 for front an rear crack and give mediocre performance, oem replacements from brembo i have heard work wonders as well.

i think so, but my next brakes are going to be the dba's this summer, but just search around, unless ur going to autox or race, i wouldnt worry about a higher end brake, just go with stock replacements.

My brother has the ebc rotors and likes them, he also has greens for pads and work well and cut way down on the dust, I am going to be putting reds on my cars in the near future.
