EBC is also good. Stay away from drilled or slotted stuff.

Try to stay away from Auto Parts Discount Stores that sell their own brands.
Good chance it will be from China.

A friend did a complete brake job, all new front and rear and when he laid on the brakes the first heavy stop one of the front rotors warped; guess the money he saved at the discount store didn’t pay off.

Stick to name brands, always pays off in the end.
Some stores have lifetime warranties, so check that out too.

Hello and thanks for info i had wheels off
and passenger side rotor looks like its
been ground down by a pair off bad pads
driver side looked ok but i'll pull both seems
like it had new pads put on just before i got
it i had. This FX4 3 weeks i had to replace
sway bar links. It's got 118k on it so we
know some work needs to be done.

Just the driver's side was bad? Check out your passenger side caliper and make sure everything is moving freely!
