Left...

I went the route of Bendix ceramic pads and Bendix premium rotors. Every stop I make is good, consistent and I love it. There is slightly more brake dust than GM factory ceramics.

WillWren himself got in and commented on how nice the brakes were on the car. Coming from a slot owner...I took it well.

They are pricey compared to regular (cheapy) pads/rotors, but not near the cost of having a mechanic change them out.

I've been thinking of painting the inside of my rotors. It does look very good.

I just did a quick search online and found powerslots for a 2000 SSEi for $216 (pair). And I know I can find a cheaper price AND free shipping with a little homework. If you need rotors anyway, that'* not a bank-breaker.
