Default Drilled/ Slotted rotors for Bonneville/ Auroras....

I'm new to the forum--and I'm not sure if you all already know about this website, but I just ran across it today. For those that don't know--and are looking for drilled / slotted rotors for your Bonnevilles and/or Auroras, heres a site called: www.KVRPerformance.com
Prices start at about $98 USD with cadmium plating available and color choices of gold, silver, and black (according to the site selections). They also have carbon fiber brake pads, and steel braided brake lines. They're located in Ottawa, Ontario. Just a little something for those that are interested.

http://www.domesticperformance.com also carries rotors for bonnevilles and possibly auroras

the opinion around here is to get only slotted rotors, because drilled rotors tend to get small heat cracks by the holes.

No matter where you are the most important information to know is the slotted rotors work best on our heavy GM frontwheeldrive cars. Most of the weight of the car is transferred on the front rotors up to 80%. This means a rotor and pad combo designed to work well under high heat is best. It also means good seasoning and mounting practice is a must. We sell in Canada and the US and we do not have to charge Canadians tax ( GST) or cross border shipping.
