Default New brakes for my 93 SE?

My brakes suck hard right now and squeak like crazy, brake fluid is also leaking from somewhere and Im assuming its from the brakes because they squeak and stuff. Anyways Im looking to upgrade to some powerslot rotors if possible and some good pads. Can I do this on my car and is it only for the front or can I throw some rotors on the back too? thank you.

Rotors on the back would screw with your ABS too much, Plus it would be custom == $$$.

I've run RSM slots and ceramic pads on the front for the better part of a year (or maybe more), Just recently I got the rest of the system working right. I can put people into the dashboard with a quick brake check

They really look that good when you get them

I bought Raybestos Quiet-Stop Ceramic pads at AutoZone, Very nice pad.

I see those brake conversion kits there, I wouldn't buy that if I had the money. Nothing against their products, It'* more the science of braking and the design limitations of the car.
