RockAuto had a closeout on Wagner rotors a few weeks ago for 2000-2005 Bonnies, not sure if any are left, think I paid under $20 each for Wagner rotors.

If I remember correctly, the SE/SSE/SLE/SSEi all had the same brake hardware. Only the GXP got different-sized brakes.

I'm gonna go with no. Only for the fact that O'Reilly says that certain brakes that woke on my SSEi don't work on SLE/SSE models.

They've been known to be retarded though.

I think they all had the same size rear between SE/SLE/SSE but the SSEi had 1" larger on the fronts I do believe.
