When applying brakes at 60 MPH I feel the brakes pulsating.
It happen once before and Cadillac replaced the discs under warranty.
Now with my warranty over what is reasonably priced setup mainly for street use?

You could probably just have your existing rotors re-surfaced (sounds like they're possibly warped). If you go new, I like the OEM rotors and pads for the street. I buy them from Luke at Lindsay though! His prices are very very fair, and his customer service is excellent.

If you change pads, I suggest EBC Redstuff pads. They create far less dust than do the OEM pads. I don't notice any difference in braking. However, I only drive on the street - no track braking.

It sure is nice to not have to clean the wheels and calipers so often.

Porter fields are good even though their customer service sucks ass. Best I have found so far. Street only, the R4S, street/track, the R4. The 2-piece OEM rotors are as good as it gets. Slot 'em if you like. (I do).

Centric rotors, $120? each shipped and a two year warranty. Wagner Perfect Stop SEMI-METALLIC front pads, $45 a set. I use these on tracks and they are clean, last long, and wear very well. I have yet to find anything else even close in price/value.

Thank you all for your suggestions.

The Cadillac dealer at first resurfaced the factory disks and it only worked for one day.
When I brought it back they replaced the disks at 14.000 miles under warranty.
As I don't put much mileage on the V now at 30,000 miles the vibration problem seems to be back.

Also my car is kept outside during the winters and the disks get quite rusty and there is a loud bang noise when I start to drive.

Baabootoo would you have a part numbers and the supplier to buy your recommended setup?

That is likely the sound of your brake pad/s breaking free from the rotor surface. I have had it happen too before I began using a good car cover.

The loud bang happens when the stock pads rust to the rotors when it sits overnight and you break them loose in the morning. As mentioned above :)
