Too Many Brake Options, need a little help 4 my R/T
Well, after 70k on the original stock rotors and pads, I need new brakes. I didn't hear a wear indicator squeak, just metal to metal grinding, yuck.
After reading about brake setups here for months, I see mention of slotted, drilled and slotted, warping, normal (stock-ish) non-slotted and drilled, ... I have also read about different pads from Bendix, Hawks, ...
So, I have a 2001 R/T and am not too hard on my brakes (hard on the gas though). What is the best setup for my ride (I donít want to go too crazy on the price)? My current options (not in order of preference) are:
1) slotted - hawks
2) slotted/drilled - hawks
3) slotted - Bendix
4) slotted/drilled - Bendix
5) Napa or AutoZone Lifetime - ceramic
6) Napa or AutoZone Lifetime - carbon
7) any other brake setup suggestions are welcomed
So, what is the best bang for the buck? I read in a couple of threads that some had issues with warping for the slotted/drilled rotors. What about the slotted only rotors? I need all 4 corners replaced.
