    Default brake parts

    i am presently researching rotors and pads for my '07.

    is there an OEM or after market manufacturer you all prefer?

    I'm sure many will pound me for this suggestion, but I get my XC rotors from these guys (http://www.primechoice.ca/). I get the slotted and drilled versions which hold up considerably better in our sea air than Brembos or Zimmermans which rust over pretty quickly here, despite the zinc plating in the latter's case. When matched up with a set of Akebono pads, they stay straight, clean and are a fair amount cheaper when the whole purchase price is considered (i.e. including shipping, tax, etc.). Sure they are from China, but so was the last set of Brembos I bought. I have this setup on my current, as well as my recently sold, XC and the latter went thousands of kms with not a problem.

    Cheers,
