2 questions on brakes

Need to do a brake job shortly. Wondering if anyone has experience with the caliper bushing kit from bavauto or TMS or Pelican? Is it worth doing while I'm in there?

Also, what's some of your preferences for rotors and pads? In the past I've only used oem or brembo blanks for rotors and oem or pagid for pads. Wondering about some of the offerings from Bavauto or Pelican such as Ate, Zimmerman, Balo, Mintex. Also curious about the EBC rotors with the black coating so they don't rust.

I'd stick to Brembo blanks and OEM pads if it's just a street car.

HPS pads have very low dust as well.

DOn't get the guide bushings for a street car. Track car, they're great since you can visually examine and regrease them often. They need a lot of attention.

For pads, it really depends on what you're looking for. FOr rotors, really any blanks will do ... The Zimmerman coated are nice. HP Ceramic pads are great for a street car. SO are the PF Z-rated.
