Default Brakes and Rotors

Hi,
Has anyone had to replace their brakes and rotors yet?
If so any suggestions?

I been looking at the Hawk LTS pads, and EBC Sport rotors (drilled & slotted) from AutoAnything.com

But I have come across a few other sites that have different brands
such as: r1concepts.com and brakeworld.com
Just not familiar with the brands they are selling.

I went with Powerstop Rotors and Pads on my Ram, and they work great. They help stop my 7,000 lb boat. They have a little over 30k on them now and they show minimal wear and no warpage whatsoever. I got them through autoanything and they were considerably cheaper than the competition.

you can get all 4 or just the front 2. I just did the front and will do the rears when the pads need done.

EBC would be my number one recommendation then Hawk.
