are you asking brand?

pads, get the OEM Delco.

why do you need rotors? I wouldnt normally expect that.

If rotors don't have deep scoring, brake pedal doesn't vibrate when braking, or when measured are not below the MIN THK on rotors; they should not need to be replaced

Default wear on rotors

I got a car with over 80,000 on one set of rotors and I expect another 40,000 / 60,000 miles before their time comes ..

longevity depends on how you use them, on the type of pads (organic vs metallic vs ceramics / etc.) you install over their life, and of course the quality (Delco vs cheapo) of the pads.

also, I do not believe on turning rotors (that creates too many variables I rather not deal with) .. when their time comes, I get new ones .. the few $'s saved by turning is negligible vs. a new set.

all that slowroll said, DITTO !!!!

Default resident GM TECH

you are most welcome ...

also, let me say that slowroll is our resident GM TECH. What he says is a lot more official than the rest of us, self proclaimed TECHs.

this new software upgrade has killed the Tech banners that showed the members who is who .. hopefully, that can be corrected before the next ice age, and you will all be able to ID who the TECHs are.

be patient !
