    You'll pay more at the parts store than online ( www.rockauto.com has great prices), but sure. I'd highly recommend ceramic pads.

    You don't have to do anything special because of the rims other than look out for potholes. Assuming you used the correct size tires, your speedometer/odometer readouts are unaffected. Less sidewall does mean accelerated wear to steering/suspension system components and hub assemblies though.

    Look for the Monroe shock on Amazon for the best price. You'll probably get free shipping.

    As for brakes, I just use OEM, but there are numerous choices on RockAuto.

    -------------------------
    STRUTS AND SHOCKS AND BRAKES - OH MY -

    -------------------------

    for struts and shocks - DEFINITELY MONROE -

    for the rear -
    Monroe MA822 KIT - $58.35 - with free shipping - for BOTH sides -
    http://www.partsgeek.com/32syvb4-bui...ber.html?fp=pp
    YES - the listing says it's for Buick -
    in fact MANY full-size GM's use this shock -
    ------------------------

    for the front - there are a couple choices -

    Monroe Sensa-Track - 71685 - $59.41 each - with free shipping -

    this is the completely assembled strut assembly -
