Brake Rotor/Pads Upgrade

Hello am new to this, but need some help on what to do for my upgrade on my 2003 G35 Sedan. I am currently looking at two Brake kits and not sure. The first one is Power Stop 1-Click Street Warrior Z26 Brake Kits K2710-26. Second one is EBC® - Stage 2 Sport Slotted Brake Kit more details on - https://www.carid.com/2003-infiniti-...t-4208390.html. Any help would be appreciated.


Thanks everyone.

is your car having issues with the current brakes? If you're not getting the stopping power you would like, i suggest flushing your fluid with some fresh ATE Type 200 to improve pedal feel. Then, put on a set of more aggressive pads. I personally street Stoptech pads, they dust a lot, but resist fade quite well even during spirited runs through the mountains. Otherwise Project Mu HC+ would be on the higher end of the spectrum in terms of streetable pads, they are very noisy, but the initial bite is incredible (assuming you have the tires to back it up) If you just want to buy parts to look cool, then get whatever looks best to you, my vote goes to EBC if i had to choose.

OEM or Centric Premium blank rotors. Flush brake fluid with ATE Type 200. Replace pads with an aggressive street pad ie. Hawk HP+ or HPS. Personally I will recommend Project Mu HC+, but most people dont want to fork over $160 for brake pads.

A lot of us have used R1Concepts for pads and rotors. They use Centric blanks and their prices and quality are hard to beat anywhere out there. Check out their choices here: https://www.r1concepts.com/

I buy my DBA rotors and HAWK HPS pads from our Marketplace under vendor brakes! That's all I'll ever use on my G35, works very well for me...Gary

I installed them a couple weeks ago and man do they have a lot more bite than oem. I would never go back to any other brakes.
