Default Clark...do you guys do brakes?

Gonna need pads soon (front and rear) and thinking I might upgrade to slotted and drilled rotors to assist in stopping the 7k lbs worth of boat I will be towing...

Maybe an Autoanything Ramforumz brake special. Seems like I've seen a couple people talking about brakes lately.

I know it's my turn to do my brakes i'm interested in EBC's brake parts. Reviews on them seem pretty good. I can't find any info on EBC's site as wear to get them in Canada though. You guys ship to Canada?

I actually had my EBCs showed to canada, so you should have no issues. As for the brake upgrade, stay away from drilled rotors, they have known cracking issues and they do NOT increase braking power, only upgraded pads, more pistons in the caliper, or larger rotor diameter will increase braking power.

Not true. Slotted/Drilled rotors from reputable companies (PowerStop, PowerSlot Brembo, StopTech, EBC, etc...) are usually ok. I can't speak for their use on trucks, but I know on my civic I had OEM replacements from PowerStop that were drilled and slotted, cost me $100 a piece and stopped that car so much faster than stock.

I am not looking for something to stop me faster, I am mainly looking for something that looks better, but performs at least as good as stock, maybe a little better. I don't tow the boat all the time, so I am really just after the looks department. The rotors I had on my civic were 2 years old when I traded it on my Ram, they had 50k on them, weren't warped, and not a crack that I could see.

So far, seems like the best deal:

But then I found them here cheaper.

After I did the math though, with AA's free shipping, they come out on top by like $50. I am looking at doing just the fronts now, and the rear's when I get to that point.

Actually, it's the design of the drilled rotors that is the issue, not the manufacturer. A cross-drilled rotor was originally designed to channel the gasses from the pads away from the rotor surface to dissipate gas-induced brake fade. The modern pad materials do no off-gas like the old materials did, so having cross drilled rotors is useless, and they don't keep the rotor any cooler since there's less surface area to absorb/dissipate heat.

Also, anytime you have a surface interruption in a heat cycled material you have what is called a thermal ridge where the opening is trying to expand outward, while the material is trying to expand as well and the opening is where it will expand into first; you have two heat stressed surfaces trying to occupy and this thermal ridge is formed and it's the place where micro fissures will occur, and these propagate into cracks. Unless the rotors have been cryogenically treated and then heated to their eutectoid point where the alloy's crystal structure will begin to blend, increasing the substrate area and reducing the surface tension, then the rotors WILL eventually crack.

They did great on your civic because your not trying to stop 5,900lbs of steel like you are on a truck. I inspect my rotors 3 times a year for crack propagation, and so far so good, but I'm running dimpled/slotted rotors, not true cross-drilled ones which are more likely to crack.

I can say that the rotors won't do anything for performance, but I do run the EBC sports rotors because of their looks as well. The G/S pads are still my favorite and they do make a difference over stock with great wear characteristics. I personally run the G/S 7000 Supremes on the front and the 6000 on the rears because the 7000 are a harder material and last longer.

I thought the only reason for cross drilling(or slotting, etc.) was to keep the rotors cool, through better heat dissipation to the air? One would think they'd technically provide less stopping power(due to less contact between the pad and rotor). If they are not actually better why do all the supercars have cross drilled rotors? My buell has drilled rotors as well.
