New Brake-Rotors, Pads, and a Caliper replacement

wasnt sure where to put this thread but i need a new caliper which prob get from advance auto since there having a sale. but my question is i need rotors, and pads since you should replace them when you get new rotors, which brand should i go with. not going crazy but at advance i can pretty much get all three items for around160 after refund of core charge. but its wearever which i dont kno how there products are. or go with power stop drilled and slotted and ebc pads for 170 without the caliper.

what do you guys think.
and btw the wearever's are not drilled and slotted, beleive there just oem replacements with wearevers gold pads

I bought my rotors and pads online drilled and slotted with posi quiet ceramic pads for less then $200. Had this set up the past 2 years and they are still 3/4 pads and rotors havent changed.

Got my new calipers put on and discs and pads. went to advance to pick the calipers up and decided to just throw new rotors on and pads. f it right? so i got home and what do you know the calipers were wrong ones. back out i go, then to autozone and then to the autozone in vernon till i finally found i pair. threw everything on real quick, lubed it up, bled them, and took it for a ride. seemed to get better as i tested them (50 to 0) still cant get the abs to kick on or the tires to squeel but as long as it stops good.

i just went with wearever discs and the wagner thermoquiet pads. so far i like them.
the calipers were 80 bucks and the discs and pads were 115.

yea me too definitely. but they didnt have the calipers and they said it would take 9 days to get them and no other advance carrries them. i had no choice and even then when i went to autozone i couldnt get ones with brackets. i was forced to use my old ones. they werent in bad shape so i said **** it and it was getting dark and i had enough of driving around and looking.

i wasnt going to get the rotors or pads today i was going to do ebay but then my old man came with me and he was like oh just get them. haha im happy its whatever.
