Does anyone know where one could purchase good aftermarket brake pads.

Made the mistake of purchasing Crapy Tire brake pads. (They do truely suck!!!)

Also I need to purchase front strut mounts and rear shock mounts and a steering rack.

A reasonable aftermarket source would be great. I'm sick of Crapy Tire and dread the dealer.

How's the performance of the C/F pads? I've heard that they have to get quite warm before they start biting.

Let me know where you got them.

Hawk HPS pads are sweet. Refinish your rotors before installing. And install them yourself if you can. It takes like 10 minutes for each one.

Brake pads... I have had hawks and KVR pads.... i did not like them.... i now have PBR metal masters and I have had no problems stopping.... just have to heat them up a bit b4, but i think that they are a better feeling, better stopping brake pad.... they are good for light track use as well....

Jorge,

Pm me and I will get you a set of pads and brembro rotors if you want...
