    I have a 08 silverado 1500 crew cab, i need to replace the front rotors. Any one have any tips to which brand to buy. I was thinking brakebest from oreillys or should i go with bosch?

    I always go with the NAPA Ultra premium rotors, if you dont do alot of towing or hard stopping then you can go with the NAPA premium rotors with a high quality pad

    I bought Power Stop from ebay for a set of brake & Rotors for $160 They are great. I can stop on a dime.

    I can vouch for the brakebest from oreillys. Using them on my 2000 Yukon along with the ceramic pads, strong and consistant stops.

    just dont go real cheap. sometimes better to pay a little more on an important part like brakes (doesnt mean go way over priced either). Good suggestions so far, with Napa Ultra premiums, brake best etc. Also look into crossdrilled/slotted rotors (EBC, Powerstop, R1 concepts)
