Need brakes

I just checked the brakes on my 2000 psd and their shot. Looking to upgrade for a better performance. Im guessing by searching that the powerslot discs and hawk pads are best? Not looking to spend a lot. Also, wheres a good place to get them? Will I notice the difference? Which pads? Also, I notices one side that the inner pad is pretty much gone and grooved the disc and the other side pad is worn crooked, pads looks like a ramp. Could that just be sticking pins?

Ya, sounds like your pins might be sticking. I clean and lube mine once a year. EBC makes good breaks might want to check them out. Just don't get cross drilled rotors, there more for race applications. Dimpled or slotted rotors would work well though.

I am running the dimpled/slotted EBC rotors and their Yellowstuff pads.

So far I love 'em.

good luck
