Front Brake Rotors and Pads

Recommended Posts

1997 STS 77k miles

I’m looking for advice on front rotors and brake pads. I’m starting to get some pulsating from the brakes. Is there a decent set of rotors and pads that are not too expensive? Should I looking into a set of “drilled” or “slotted” rotors? (I do not need high performance stuff) Just something that will last longing before they start “warping”. I want a good pad that will not make noise and will not make a lot of brake dust. Any advice would be helpful.

It's possible your rotors are not warped. The pulsing you are feeling might be caused by uneven pad material distribution on the rotor. Take a look at this link and in particular the break-in procedure under the PREVENTION heading. http://www.stoptech.com/whitepapers/warped_rotors_myth.htm

Whatever the cause, maybe your rotors are still thick enough to be cleaned up with a nondirectional finish. I have been using OEM pads for many years and the service has been good ( dusty, but good).
