Since I'm going to be changing the pads and painting the calipers over spring break I thought why not replace the rotors too. But then I see the SHO rotors are $110 each. How much is it to get some cross drilled rotors from SHO Shop?

here's the quote.. And I have some idler pulleys on there too. the Bottom two are for an SHO the one above is for a regular 3.0.. It took me a while to convince them I had an SHO.. I guess I should of pointed out to the parking lot where it was parked.

My gen 4 had bigger rotors than a gen 2 SHO and IIRC it was only like $60.00 and $35.00 for pads. I think $110 is a rip off. Hopefully you can find a better deal.

Cross drilled run like $200.00 I think.

Rock Auto has them between $8.22 and $37 ea.

Stop going to dealers unless you know someone who can give you jobber price. I just purchased two rear rotors (TRW) and carbon fiber pads for $80.

I would avoid cross drilled rotors unless you need them for looks. They won't help you stop any faster (needed for the old days when organic brake pads would gas under race conditions) and will crack so replace them again the next time the pads are worn out. Vadim at the SHO Shop years ago show me a whole pile of cracked rotors, some of them were 12.5" Baers too.

Ditto, go to your local Autozone, buy their generic rotors for $25, save yourself a bundle. The irony is these rotors last just as long as anything you'll be from the stealership.
