if you just want stockers, go to autozone, if you want to upgrade, we have some brake parts at our website, www.JusnesModified.com

frozenrotors.com has brake pads in several different compounds. there website does not list much, but if you call they can help. also, for anyone interested, I have found there rotors to be far superior to any other rotor I have tried, costly, but they are the only ones that didn't warp over time on my F-350, which are famous for warpping the front rotors.

Autozone has a couple of different grades available. Their "Performance Friction" pads are better at controlling dust than the other stuff they have.

On a similar note, I just did the front brakes on my '02 and used Hawk HPS pads. Carbon-metallic compund. You'll pay more for them then you would for the PF pads at Autozone, but when it comes to brake pads, you get what you pay for. So far, they're great on dust, stop better than the stockers, and with no noise. If I remember right, those are available from Bob.

I got away with just turning my rotors on this job, so I can't personally comment on any aftermarket rotors.

I don't know how advisable it is to install used rotors, but since you've got a '93, and you inquired about slotted/drilled rotors, I'm passing this along from ORR:
