Welcome from Houston, Texas.

Re: brakes... I replaced my rotors and pads from Powerstop. Their slotted and drilled rotors appeared to be the same casting as stock and have a nice thick zinc coating to stave off rusting on the non-braking surfaces. I started the work as I knew I had a cupped rotor, I then found out I had two sticky calipers, one front and one rear, so I then ordered their rebuilt calipers which were painted red. Finally I changed out the fluid, which was brown/black and gunky. In the end it honestly was minimal equipment upgrade, but dramatic change in braking performance and it looks a lot better.

Hi new member out of reno nv anyone know of a good brake upgrade
Is there an issue you have with the original brakes that requires an upgrade, rather than just replacement? I have not had any complaints with my brakes in nearly 1/4 million miles other than replacement when they were worn. Working on the second set so not sure I should be concerned.

Another warm welcome from Canada... If you haven't realized it already, you will be thankful you subscribed. An upgrade to drilled and slotted rotors along with ceramic pads is never a bad idea. Before disconnecting the brake fluid lines on the calipers push the brake pads all the way back, this will quickly tell you if your calipers have piston problems.

I agree with Robert re upgraded brakes. I replaced mine when they were virtually new with drilled slotted rotors from Rotorpros. I have purchased several sets from Rotorpros for other vehicles. Their pricing is much better than OEM for the same castings with major upgrades.

Drilled and slotted rotors and up-graded pads, as well as stainless braided brake lines front and rear. When you change the fluid, make sure to bleed/exercise the ABS module.
