Not certain I understand your point Beewang. I'm not quoting some 'special brand that FCP is pushing... it's Brembo rotors and Akebono pads (like I previously stated).

Yes they offer 'cheaper'...

Huh?

Where can I find 4 Zimmerman rotors, and Akebono pads, SS lines and sensors for 175.00?

The dump!

Seriously, if the centres aren't bored out properly there's no telling what kind of problems you're going to have when mounted. Move on.

Only my opinion.

And the A/C belt still rotates regardless of whether it's 'on' or 'off'... so yes, it could be suspect.
