Do you have an Oreilly Auto Parts near? I'm going for Wagner ceramic pads front and back w/ lifetime warranty and Wagner front rotors w/ lifetime warranty. I'm getting el cheapo rear rotors cause they're so much more expensive and the rears don't do much work anyways.

This plan will only set me back about $225 in all so that's a pretty good deal in my book.

Are you serious? Lifetime warranty on Rotors??? That sounds great. Its just I don't have an Oreilly store anywhere near.....

Your 03 already needs new pads and rotors? How many miles do you have? My 02 has 54k miles and I am still on my stock rotors. I got front pads replaced, and front rotors machined at Midas. Nothing has been done to rear brakes.

For stock replacements, I recommend Raybestos plain rotors and PowerStop 9-1-1 Extreme Performance pads (available at www.powerstopbrakes.com).

I have 26k on my alero and its on its 2nd set of pads and rotors. It feels like they are starting to warp again. Just started slightly. I am looking into getting some GOOD replacement stuff that I hope will last.
