Default New Break discs/rotors Rear Hub PICS ADDED!

Well ok so hears the deal. I am looking at getting an upgrade on disks. I am looking at these, only question is will the fit the stock calipers? This is the sku E35GD7090 it should be the first one on the page.

I think so but not sure, what do you guys think of those? not a bad price for the set huh? The other thing here is the rear bearings on both wheels area slowly going on my car. I need to get those replaced but they said that its not just the bearing its the hub assembly I believe. Is that true? If so they wanted over 700 bucks installed. I prolly could get them my self cheaper on gmpartsdirect?

Here'* what I just put on mine:

Front:
Power Slot Cryo slotted
http://cpwstore.carpartswholesale.co...4CSL+&x=26&y=8 (go down the list to find the Bonnie, and change the "L" to "R" for right one)

Rear: EBC Ultimax slotted
http://cpwstore.carpartswholesale.co...193+&x=11&y=11

No probs so far. great stopping power. You don't want the drilled ones, as drilling IMO just makes the metal weaker and more prone to cracking. I'll probably raise some hairs with that statement

Yea I like the look of them, not to mention I am getting the set for 155. I would have to say they are better then most stock disks. I am just wondering about the hub. Hopefully some others will chime in soon.

The bearing is part of the hub assembly. The whole assembly is replaced.

Got some pics after rotating my tires. Me and a buddy cleaned most of the chipped rust off the front breaks and sanded them down a bit. Sounds much better now. Just posting some pics for your enjoyment. I also wanted to ask what you think if I need to get new rotors or not? Let me know. Enjoy!

The rotors, of what we can see, look fine...but only so much can be done with a visual inspection. The thickness would need to measured to be certain that there is enough material left, and they could be warped. Those things can't be decided just be looking at them. One thing to check is the insides of the rotors. There are many times that the outside looks fine, but the inside is quite pitted.

Yea what I am gonna do is wait a while, cause the rear bearings need to get replaced thats for sure, and those are the most expensive. So i have to go that whole hub unit. Unless that nosie from the fronts come back then i will wait till I have $$$ to do that. Here is the page but I can't tell the difference in the last product and the 3rd last one.

Just type in hub under search and then you will see what I mean.

Or I could get it a lot cheaper here but its not genuine GM
