What rotors and pads are best?

Rotors- Drilled, Slotted, or Cross-drilled?

Can I just use EBC Greenstuff 2000 series pads on any of those rotors, or do I need special pads?

Sorry for all the questions lately, To get a 'nice brake' appearance, would just changing the rotors and pads be enough? or should I change anything else?

Go to honda dealer, get some OEMs take off the wheels, take of caliper botls (10 or 12 mm) 2 of em. get flathead screw driver and slide em out slide new ones back in and the bolt calpier back to rotor assembly ohh get a C-clamp at ur auto parts store to clamp caliper mechanism back in b4 putting it back over the rotors/pads and then u can bolt that ish back up

CivicSF should not be trustedCivicSF should not be trusted
if you jam the brakes, OEM blows.

for granny driving-style don't worry about aftermarket anything.

anybody try those Cryo-whatever rotors? I heard they don't do **** compared to brembo/powerslot

slotted rotors and hawk hps pads hands down. rotors dont need to be bigger than stock, imo.

Pretty much unless the car is used for road racing or something all the time. I agree.

This has been beaten around the bush. There's really no need to go through it again.
