I believe Power Slot also makes rotors for our trucks. They're significantly cheaper than EBC.

I went with these guys http://brakeperformance.com/, but with no drilled no slots because I didn't want dirt and/or mud caked up in the slots and holes. Happy so far.

installed the brakes a couple weeks ago. perfect fitment... zinc finish is still 100% after rain and 2 washes.

although, i think the pads are creating a bit more dust than i would have thought, being CERAMIC and all.

if they continue to produce "alot" then i may contact the seller.

Bump.

I know it's several months back, but any updates with the ceramic pads? Did that setup make a difference in braking?

I feel the brakes on my Frontier are lacking compared to my previous truck.

my setup still feels great. rotors are looking a bit worn but not rusty yet.
we havent had too much snow here, so that means not too much salt.

pedal feels great

Cool, I've read some reviews on them in the past and after doing some more research, I'm gonna give them a shot. Not sure of the time frame cause I've only got about 5k on my OEM. Thanks for the input, you have any pics?

no pictures as of right now.
i bought R1 concepts for my wrangler, my g/f's patriot and my brother in law has used them on a couple mustangs.

never had an issue.
actually, when i purchased the brakes for my 99 Wrangler ( year was split with the size/depth of the hub section) i ordered the incorrect rotors, called them up and they sent out the appropriate rotors within 2 days.
they also sent a prepaid label to send the other set of brake parts back.

a+ in my opinion
