Hey gents. Just wanted to let everybody know about these. Looking for rotors, found some EBC fronts on EBAY for a good price. No pads included, but I had this setup on my Silverado with a set of Hawk pads. It stopped incredibly for a 6" lifted truck on 35" mudders. EBC is an incredible company, and there are quite a few available. Just wanted to inform everyone....

And, don't forget the rears!! More EBC....

Personally I'm not a big fan of slotted rotors on daily drivers. Cross drilled is fine, aloows the brakes to cool a bit, but the goal of slots are to effectively "shave" the pads as you brake removing glaze from the pads. On some race cars this can be helpful since they brake so hard and its not a big deal if the pads only last one race, but on a daily driver do you really need the pads being shaved every time you hits the brakes? Myself, i would only get crossdrilled, especially if they have chamfered edges on the holes. Then a set of ceramic pads and your brakes should last a long time

I didn't have any issues with my cross drilled and slotted rotors, and I've had them on pretty much every vehicle I've owned. Daily drivers (have a set on my Escort ZX2 that I drive to work) and my faster weekend runners (My old Mustang, Camaro, all long since sold) and I will say that none of them have worn out the pads any faster than a regular set of rotors. Besides, who cares if it wears them out "faster" when you're able to avoid rear ending that stupid person on the interstate that decides now is a good time to slam on their brakes....

:iagree:The way I drive almost need my cross drilled & slotted rotors and nitrogen cooling. :bonk:

Some times too fast, sometimes towing a lot, other times too fast and towing a lot plus going down a big hill. The rest of the time ..... na, don't need em. Ya sure I can burn through ceramic pads and maybe destroy some rotors but they stop me when I have to stop.
