I went with Carbotech bobcat 1521 , this is a ceramic street pad. Got F&R for $350 shipped. I like them a lot ,low dust etc. You should probably turn your rotors but be SURE your mechanic knows what he is doing. Mine told me you had to be very careful with the cross drilled rotors. Mine turned out fine . Also be sure to follow the bedding in procedure for both pads and turned rotors. These come with your specific pads you order.

I would. The rears don't work as hard as the fronts but if you replace the fronts and not the rears you'll soon be replacing the rears. I'd do it all at once but thats my opinion.

by the way talk to doug he may still have a deal going on with the Hawk pads. I got a set of the HPS pads. Haven't put them on yet just hit 6,000 miles but I will be once I go to the track a few more times.

Hi Jack,
I had a group buy going on Hawk brake pads for the first part of June. All I have left are 1 set of the Hawk HP Plus which are not really street pads at all. They will yank your eyeballs out on the track but they dust pretty well and will squeak on the street.

Hi JackISF, I have the Carbotech pads on my F, and love the bobcat's for the fact they don't trash the wheels with brake dust. Can order from Carbotech.com or calling 877-899-5024. You will want to have the rotors turned before install. The bedding procedure is quick and easy. Enjoy!

Yes turning your rotors is basically grinding off a layer to resurface them.
