You better believe they improved braking. The difference was incredible, and the rotors were CHEAP and by cheap I mean check my thread and you'll be shocked. IIRC they were $180 SHIPPED for the fronts and $120 shipped for the rears. Not bad at all considering the NAPA brakes are $150 each.
I went with ceramic pads since I can't stand the brake dust I had with the old pads. $55 for each set (front and rear) at Advance Auto.
Zinc coated too for rust protection. Try getting that for $180 a pair shipped elsewhere.
Best damn deal out there. I chose R1 Concepts because I've talked to many people who have had great experiences with them. So far I've bought 5 pairs of rotors from them for my and other friends' cars, and they've all had excellent results with them and were very satisfied. Oh, and after each purchase, they give you a $10 off coupon, so you can order the fronts, wait for the coupon, then order the rears with the discount.
