Don't go aftermarket, get dealer parts. Bring the parts to the shop, they shouldn't charge no more then 90 bucks for the front and 90 for the rear to install brakes and rotors.

id go with Hawk brake pads for more bite, the OEM pads leave a little to be desired.

Anybody tried EBC redstuff pads. I've seen a few post on other places that they're good and will let your rotors survive some hard driving.

EBC Red Stuff are awesome, good bite and low dust.

BigJoe...of course Nissan will tell you to get Nissan brakes. You know dealerships make most of their money off service they sell you right? If you want improved braking go for Hawk or EBC brake pads.

I have two friends with first gen Vipers... both of whom run EBC RedStuff pads and love them. Both of them crank out 500whp and are very happy with the redstuff pads.

Pads and Rotors from Nissan for front only - 68.01 per rotor, 70.63 for pad set = $210 rounded up

Slotted or Drilled Rotors from Tirerack - 118 per rotor, Hawk HPS pads - 73 set, or 80 for ceramics = 320 for the high end....Hell they even have Brembo Blanks for $50 each

WRONG. even though you probably got it done already. depending on what the owner wants, there are pads that are made of different materials. such as mettalic, semi-mettalic and cemramic. a lot of good aftermarket companies such as ebc, dba, hawk, brembo etc. mostly produce ceramic brake pads. the rotors are made of different types of metals and styles too. cross drilled, drilled, slotted etc. certain brake pads are made to reduce squeaks/noises, some rotors are made to have better cooling for the brakes. it's up to what the owner wants and prefers. if he doesn't want to spend much money then go to rockauto.com and get their cheapest brakes. they get squeaky but does the job.

my plan in the spring is to get stainless steel brake lines, some higher temperature brake fluid, EBC red stuff front and back, and on the fence between machining the stock rotors/getting aftermarket rotors too. im overhauling the whole thing i dont like steppin on the brake and having the car not slow down..

After my experience at the track where I experience brake fade and wound up with badly scored rotors I'm going to pursue a similar path a Ghozt. My plan is to put EBC sport rotors on the front, keep my OEM rear rotors and put EBC redstuff pads all around. I haven't gotten much advise on the latter decision but it makes sense to those I talk to. I'd think you want the same pad material all around so the braking distribution is the same. If you find yourself braking hard then it makes sense to have some gas venting capability in your front rotors. I am curious if the change is rotor surface area affects the performance but that's the direction I'm going.

Tomas, your plan sounds just fine to me man. You'll definitely feel a difference in fade resistance. Larger rotor surface area = shorter stopping distances. The more pad you can get to bite onto the rotor means a lot more friction and better all around braking. Increasing the rotor diameter helps spread out the heat more across the surface, thus decreasing brake fade.

there are a ton of options...i personally will never do Rockauto or autozone stuff again....i have been having bad luck with their stuff the last couple years...I would either buy dealer only or name brand companies like DBA, Brembo, EBC.....in all honesty i will prolly get Brembo Blanks and hawks HPS when i need brakes....heavy track days are tough on brakes no matter what you have but the high temp fluid, stainless lines and drilled rotors do help a lot. In terms of rotor surface area....drilled rotors do help not as much as a BBK but they do help, BBKs are $$$$ and can be a giant PITA...good quality OEM upgraded replacements will do wonders...SS lines will be a nice change in pedal feel for ya

If only your pads r thnning out and get no vibrations, then just replace the pads, do not turn the rotors like many will suggest u to to.

Id also suggest oem pads, they come with the proper amount of shims. Theres like two bolts, u should be able to do it yourself.

Now are we referring to stainless steal brake lines or rubber?
