Which rotors and pads

I was looking at Cragar Cryo treated cross-drilled and slotted rotors and Baer Decelerotors. They are both about the same price. Also, which pads are better with dust and stopping performance Hawk LTS pads or Hawk HPS pads? Opinions and any additional options are welcome. Just want to get the best parts the first time.

Go to NAPA and get the performance rotors with lifetime warranty. They also have heavy duty pads to go with the rotors. My front rotors are cross drilled and slotted and look good. No squeal in the brakes now and they stop the truck very well. Rotors and pads for the front was $234.00.

Which rotors and pads

I am tempted to put the Napa rotors and pads on. The price is pretty good on them too. Looks aren't the issue for me, it's about the performance. I was thinking pretty hard about buying the PowerSlot rotors, but the local Napa store makes it easier to deal with warranty issues.

My question is about brake dust. How is the brake dust with the Napa parts? What material are the pads made of?

Which rotors and pads

i installed the power slots and hawk ceramic pads last year before the rally.
stops great, no dust, well a little but not like before.
but after coming down that little trail we took in the mountian, and the pads/rotors got hot. they squealed! i mean LOUD!! just ask anyone that was on that trip.......
stopped once we got down and they cooled down I assume.
havn'et had any problems since.

i do like the pricing on the Napas better... maybe for the rear. this winter.

I have little to no brake dust showing since installing the NAPA rotors and pads.

Those are the ones. They have gone up in price. I have them all the way around on my 03 and I put the Bendix ceramic pads on. No brake dust whatsoever and they stop great. Got about 5-7k on them.
