Anybody ever use these? Seems like for the money they'd be hard to beat. I have an 02 EXT that needs rotors & pads so I was thinking of using these... Unless we know they are junk... Anybody???

That seems like a hell of a deal. $80 shipping to the East Coast though...

I've seen those for a while now and wondering the same thing. I know the +1 brake kit would probably be better, but I need to use my stock 17" wheel during the winter so that's out. I don't want to spend $5k on a big brake kit and then another thousand or so for winter rims.

The price is pretty cheap, I would just worry about the quality of the parts

I almost bought from Ebay, but as hcvone said I was fearful of the parts quality. Instead I opted to go with EBC, good name brand company, good price. check out the link

I have front and rear x drilled slotted rotors and they work great. No problems here.

i totally agree i been shopping online with ebay for five years and ive seen some stuff that was cheap and i thought i was getting a deal and it was crap. i wouldnt buy brakes on ebay and jeporadize my life. yeah a complete brake job is expensive but you can take back your life once its lost nor now one wants a total caddy so if you like your life and your caddy then do it right
