    ceramic might make a little more noise than normal but they'll last longer and the difference in the brake dust is huge (almost no brake dust from ceramics)

    Go to the EBC website - www.ebcbrakes.com - and get to Automotive brakes, U.S. There are a slew of links to every possible sort of disc brke info you could ever want. Do a bit of homework.

    I run ceramic pads on slotted rotors - no noise, no dust, wonderful braking in all weather.

    Chris, doesn't GM make a set of slotted Durastop rotors with companion ceramic or semi-metallic pads ???

    Re: What are the best brakes for an 04 Deville?

    some cars have 'performance' acdelco rotors available ... i would guess that those would be the slotted ones

    the pads aren't matched to these rotors though... you could use whatever pad you want

    at least as far as I know ...

    ----------



    SO.... looks like they're slotted AND drilled!

    those are the 'specialty'/'performance' rotors for a 2004 deville (without the heavy duty J55 braking option that comes on livery cars with the 8 lug bolt wheels/hubs)
    so basically for the regular devilles

    LH rotor
    19171339

    RH rotor
    19171340

    ceramic pads would be ACDelco Durastop brand (professional grade)

    Talk to Chris - Post #4 - Rippy Cadillac over there >>>>

    For EBC, look at www.placeforbrakes.com - they now have a discount banner on the home page header, and their shipping is free. I run EBC Black Dash slotted rotors and the new ceramic Redstuff pads - glass smooth and no dust..........BUT you need to follow the break-in instructions.
