    what type pads came originaly on the fronts ? im changing the brakes i put new rotors and ceramic on rear, but front rotors are still in great shape and i want to go with ceramic pads. but dont know if original came with ceramic or semi, guess what im asking is will original rotors handel ceramic pads?

    Probably will work but the vehicle braking performance could be degraded. No matter what the auto parts store guys tell you Ceramics aren't quite as good as the type GM put on. They don't squeal or dust as much but they don't have the stopping power. That could be an issue on a vehicle that doesn't have that much to begin with. There is a reason why true high performance brake pads are not ceramic.

    I have read a few things that say the original Pads were made by Akebono and they are Ceramic. People could be wrong, but I have been doing some digging lately cause I also have an 04 Z71
