I second that. If your funds are limited buy better ceramic pads with cheaper rotors rather than the other way around. Most "warped" rotors simply have uneven brake pad residue and can be cured with several hard 60mph-20mph stops, with ample cooling time in between. Roloc abrasive discs also work very well for fixing "warped" rotors. The Honda dealership I worked at used them on every brake job in which old rotors were re-used.Autozone Rotors and good ceramic pads.[/b]
I'm not sure why you're so avid against Autozone rotors? They work well for what the car is. The real money-dropper should be the pads. Good pads and decent rotors will get you very far. I've had Autozone rotors on my Sable since late 2005 and only now is it time to change them again. My Taurus is about the same length on both front and rears.Are you keeping the car for a while, then go with good parts not that Zone garbage.
I've had great results with NAPA premium rotors and ceramic pads on my current Sable and the last 2 bulls.
Haven't tried Advance brake parts yet but have used other parts from them.
Always go for the premium rotors, the cheapos will warp way before the pads are half worn............[/b]
