looking for some suggestions on a good brake upgrade without spending a stupid amount of money. right now im leaning towards brembo blanks and hawk or ebc pads with some goodridge ss braided lines (already have). if you know of anywhere that has good prices on these let me know!

importrp.com sells brembo blanks. not sure on prices for integras but 60ish for both fronts for my civic.
and im sure the site also sells lines and pads too.

and there are a couple pads i was thinking about and STILL havent decided and its been like almost a year. i narrowed it down to hawk hps or ebc green stuff.

i think ive decided on brembo blanks and ebc pads. i decided against hawk bc they are dusty from what ive been reading, although a bit more aggressive than ebc. im not racing this car or doing anything extreme as far as braking so i think this setup will do me just fine for a total of $280 since i already have ss braided lines. also, some people complain about the hawks sqeeking from time to time bc of the more metallic compound.


oh, importrp for brembo blanks (144.59 shipped)
and summitracing for ebc greenstuff pads (136.80)
thats for my gsr, civics may be cheaper, not sure. and those are the best prices ive found, hope that helps

ah u have 4 wheel disk brakes dont u. i was wondering why 144.59 shipped. (if u dont have 4-wheel, then im just baffled).

for me civic, brembo blanks (2 front) and a pair of hawk hps pads rusn like $120ish shipped.

but yeah i heard the same about hawk hps but other ppl have said the dont squeek. hence why they're still at the top of my list with ebc's.
---
and that reminds me... i really wanna do a 4 wheel disk conversion on my ex. im a fan of starting fast and then having to brake suddenly. and lately its been worse since i started my full time summer job (8am-4pm) and i get out of work just before rush hour traffic and im tryin to haul ass before cars start poppin out.

yeah i have 4wheel disk......im not sure what pads are on my car now, but they are dusty as hell and i cant keep my wheels clean which i hate so that definatly puts out hawks for me, and the extra bite just doesnt justify it personally

EM Racing Cylinder Brace = http://emracing.com/products2.html - $107.99
EBC Green Stuff Pads = http://store.summitracing.com/partd...907812+4294924667+4294906227+115&autoview=sku - $62.95
Brembo Blanks - http://www.autopartswarehouse.com/p...d=1192&partid=78&makeid=1&modelid=1&year=1999 - $32.95 each
Stainless Lines - $50 from a local brake shop.

I'm not running this setup, but when I decide to upgrade mine, it's what I plan on using. I've heard very good things about all these products through word of mouth, forums, and various research I've done.

I'd either get some OEM Honda or Napa replacements. The only other thing I can think of is Nissan Spoon calipers .... but f**k that price tag.
