I installed the EBC slotted & Dimpled rotors up front with EBC green pads. After break in and running them for a while, they don't stop as fast as the stock pads, but expected. Almost no brake dust.
However, after about 6000 miles, when I pulled up to a drive through window, I heard them squeel. Only when lightly on the brakes and moving real slow. Of course EBC puts a warning on their website as well as their rotor boxes stating to check the run out of the new rotors once installed. If they are not within specs (hard to believe new rotors would not be), then have them turned down or risk vibration noise / squeeling after 3 to 4000 miles. I checked mine and they where perfectly within spec. But, I have the squeeling noise and the "turbo sounds" or whatever they call it from the slots & dimples is starting to get annoying. Cool at first, then grows old sounding.
For the amount of money spent, I don't like this set-up (
) and soon will go back to a standard rotor surface with the GM ceramic pads. I have a friend that runs that set-up on a similar TBSS and loves it. No squeel and very little brake dust.
BTW - I have almost 10,000 miles on them, still squeeling!
