On my 91 LE I have just bought the cheapie rotors and have had very few issues with them... I generally get 4 or 5 years out of a set... Took me a long time to warp the first cheapie set... With the second set I went to the Bendix Titanium Metallic pads and so far they have been a great pad.. Low brake fade, and good stopping power... I reccomend them..

Not sure if Ceramic pads are too hard for the rotors...

I think Napa sells a good set of Slotted rotors, stay away from drilled rotors

Skip the K&N filter, it'* overpriced, pick up a Purolator instead. I'd recomend Chevron over Mobil 1, just for the cost factor as well. I've actually had pretty good luck with Cheapo Raybestos Rotors. The PG+ pads are good as well.
