So as much as i want drilled and slotted cquence on my goat it costs way more than i have in my budget right now. My brakes are just now hitting the sensors so i need new pads but would like some input on what some good brake pads are. I would like to get some nice ceramic pads that are reasonably priced.

THANKS!

When you get them down to a good price off of cost, they are about that much.
As you know, I manage a Sears store, and am good friends with my fellow staff members. The auto manager hooked me up with a full break job for 460 bucks. 18,000 mile warranty.

i know how much they can be but if i were to order from cquence they would give me ceramic pads (4) for an additional 99 bucks. i prolly would just do all 4 rotors and pads if shipping wasn't 50 freaking dollars. 185 for just pads or 350 for rotors and pads i would say to go ahead and do rotors.. i just dont think i can manage 400 dollars for brakes

Since you have a goat I would definitely save your money and do it right. Getting the hawk pads now may be a good idea, so when you can get the new rotors you are all set. No need to go cheap on brakes when everyone knows you are slammin the go fast pedal on the goat. :gtr:

yep. brakes are expensive. new rotors for my g8 are 800 plus.
so instead im doing the camaro ss brembo swap with larger rotors and 4 pistion calipers on all 4 corners. getting sports cars makes all parts expensive

The best brake pads are the ones that go in wilwood's gto calipers.

Hawk for sure dude, They may cost alot now, but they are a great company and would you rather go through 2 sets of "cheaper" stuff or one set of Hawks??

EBC is also another good one
