I have been doing my own brake jobs for about 50 years. My work provides good results and, thanks to forums such as this and other sources on the web, I feel I have learned the ins and outs of this particular maintenance job. I am no expert though, particularly when it comes to choosing brake parts from multiple offerings. Take rotors, for example. I want OE plain rotors, no slots, no drills. Even OE plain are offered in a myriad of prices and manufacturers. Typically the price range from the cheapest to most expensive is significant. Other than simply saying more expensive is better, how do I choose a rotor or even brake pads? Some cast iron used in rotors is better than others but offerings do not describe the quality of cast iron. I would appreciate advice about how to select a suitable rotor from many on offer. I am simply a daily driver looking for reliability and longevity.
