Brake maintenance

Hi Folks,

CBS in my car is indicating I'm within 2000 miles of front brake maintenance, the other day the car was in for service (mechatronic sleeve/trans oil pan gasket leak, all covered under CPO warranty) and they checked it for me. It will need pads and rotors.

I will take it to my indy, my question is if I go to something besides OEM, do I need to replace front and rear at the same time, or can I do just the pads/rotors on the front? Rears have almost 10K left according to the CBS.

Dealer quoted me $820 for just the front service (pads/rotors/misc bits). I figure I can get a full install with Stoptech or similar upgrade for not much more than that, but hate to waste the miles left on the rear brakes.

I suspect going non-OEM would require all around replacement to make sure the braking remains balanced front/rear. Is that right? Ideas and thoughts?
