rotors are fucked. stoppin with the wobbledy-wobbledy. need some new ones.

don't really need anything fancy, I just don't want them to warp like the old ones, though i guess that's just as easy as one tech overtightening my nutzos. anyway, i saw these oem brembos on ebay but they're stupid cheap so i dunno. something seems fishy.

thoughts?

well they have 100% percent feedback from 1233 auctions. seems like a good bet to me. actual feedback seems spot on as well. after checking around the ebay ones are slightly high on price by about 15bucks......but i didnt personally know about the places i was finding them cheaper from so i would go with the ebay auction based on the feedback.

I'm not to sure about it. If you look at the pic it looks like they have an extra lug hole for some reason. Possibly an accident and then got rejected and sold from the factory. And it doesn't say what size the rotors are so there's really no telling how the fitment will be.

That is a very good deal though. Next rotors I am going to get will go through the cryo treatment process for sure. It makes rotors last anywhere from 200%-400% longer.

hmmm, good point. you think the extra hole would fuck with the integrity of the rotor?

good prices (says the rotors are OEM spec from Centric or SP) and they come with hawk HPS pads (really good brake pads).......just stay far away from super blue brake fluid.

when suby was last at GTE for race inspection there was a question about my brake fluid looking old since it was kinda dark...told them it was super blue....kieran immediately said "drain it! we got some motul for ya.....much better stuff" asked about why and kieran told me that people were switching over since the super blue would sometimes cause a mushy brake pedal. funny he should say that because i was already getting that mushy pedal. now with the motul brake fluid its back to crisp response and very stout brake feel.

or you could always call up your local NAPA for some OEM replacements. NAPA carries good shit and are usually fairly good on prices.
