#1 rule:

Never buy 'unkown brand' rotors or pads.

#2 rule:

Read the following topic, contact the eBay seller, and back out (ignore the ignorant politics in the topic):

#3 rule:

Ask before buying. We've got alot of knowledge and experience on what works and what doesn't. We can save you money, time, and pain.

I seriously doubt a dealer'* service department will install any rotor or pad that doesn't say AC Delco on it.

I wouldn't put them on my car. Either of them for that matter.

Resell them on eBay if you can. But you need to find out what the fit first.

You worked at Primasing? In Lebanon? I almost bought a car from them right before I found my SSEi.

Let'* find the right brakes for you, and figure out how to cut your losses on your ebay parts.

Off-brand? Bad. Or potentially so.

Drilled? Worse.

When it comes to brakes, be VERY particular. Getting the car going is one thing. Stopping when and how it should is more important.

You work for the best furniture store in the Valley. I have some of your stuff.

Let'* get together and talk brakes over a beer or 3.
