Do I need to order 1 box or 2 boxes of brake pads to do two front wheels?

i think its like formula 3 or something....who knows...but they're excellent, also, i recommend their TitaniuMetallic pads, little cheaper, excellent wear, excellent performance, perfect across the board.

Bendix. 100%

Yes, I have heard great things about them as well. I am pretty sure it comes down to ceramic or not. So do you mind dirtier wheels, for less cost? And keep in mind the difference in braking feel between the two compounds.

Well, the rotors and QuietStop pads were put on yesterday. Got the Raybestos because that'* what the wife found first from the list of possibilities (this was all my anniversary present). I am super impressed so far. Maybe it'* because I was living with warped rotors for so long, but good brake feel makes a car feel so much higher quality when you have it.

John...if you want to improve that say by ~25% flush your brake fluid. I was quite impressed by the firmness in the pedal etc when the flush was complete.

Seconded (or thirded? Fourthed?) on the brakes.

Last Friday evening on the '98 LeSabre I installed Bendix rotors and Raybestos Quiet Stop pads (using liberal amounts of Permatex brake quiet and caliper lube), plus a Motive Products Power Bleeder flush (thanks to Ken, a.k.a. sp4149), and I am in absolute braking Nirvana.

The stock rotor shakes are gone, stopping power is fantastic, no squeal...I love it. The standard semi-metallic pads would blacken the wheels something awful within a day, so after only two days I can already tell that dusting will be reduced with the ceramics.
