This week I'm going to be changing brake pads on my car as mine are pretty shot. Today I went to O'Reilly's to check prices and availability on pads and rotors. They charge $10.50 per rotor to have them turned, which mine are in need of or just plain need replacing. The cheapest pads I could get were like $22 for front and $19-ish for back which is what I'll probably go back with for now just to have my car stopping right, but eventually I will upgrade. So I ask them to show me prices on new stock rotors for a GT, which were $35 each (I think) for 11" vented rotors...not bad considering I would be spending over $20 just to have my old ones turned. I think factory GT calipers were just over $30 as well. So then I ask for them to check prices for the same parts only for a 94 Cobra, this time the 13" rotors were like $45 each and the dual piston calipers were $55 each I think...I really should have written everything down, and I may go back tomorrow and do so and then update this with the correct prices. I was watching videos lastnight on LMR's YouTube channel and came across the SVE cobra brake upgrade with new calipers, slotted and drilled rotors and braided brake lines. The install looked pretty straight forward and all the hardware looked very nice as well. So I looked up the price online and couldn't believe it...$700! Just for the front! Now I know very little about brakes or any of the hardware involved in a brake upgrade, but what is the difference in an SVE kit and the parts from a supply house like O'Reilly's??....besides of course SVE having the slotted and drilled rotors and braided lines. Is there any down side to upgrading brakes to factory replacement components from O'Reilly's? The way I was thinking it would just make more sense to buy new rotors instead of having mine turned (since they are in pretty bad shape) and that I might as well upgrade instead of just factory replacements. What's your opinions?
