Default Finally - my new rotors and pads are on!!!!

(Ya, I posted this on another board....but I thought those who don't visit the 'other forum' might like to see this)

Finally! After 7 hours, everything is on and functioning awesome!! I worked my rear end off, doing everything "right" and taking pics. I plan to do a "How-to" write up as I have not seen a front and back rotor & pads replacement job posted here. Hope that is cool with everyone.

The back was more a pain then the front!

More picture in a few days, when I post the write up

Before (looks silly without tires!)


After

Brake Performance, not EBC's. Made in the USA and lifetime warranty. Added the ceramic brake shoes too. Hopefully this will cut down on the dang dust!!!

Here is their link:

I went to the brake performance site and was wondering exactly what rotors you went with? Great write up.

No holes, they are "dimpled". Biggest difference is how quiet they are AND the no brake dust everywhere. I have only driven it for a few days though.
