Brake replacement kit suggestion ?

Is Rockauto still the best place in terms of value to buy a brake kit [rotors & pads]. Looking to change them to get rid of the screeching sound.
Was looking at this one RA brake kit


Any place that locally doesn't rip you off to get the same stuff in GTA ? Or even just the pads ?

Of you're not looking to install economy parts, yes, RA is still best.

If you are looking to buy power stop, cross shop with amazon.ca. Sometimes, it's cheaper to buy front and rear separately and othertimes, their higher models are cheaper on amazon.

Also, don't buy maxbrakes or anything that resemble maxbrakes in terms of price and blackshitjob they do like above link.

The coated kits from RA seem like a good option for your car. I haven't seen Amazon carry the coated versions whether they are kits or rotors only. The shipping cost for rotors will be high because they are heavy so I'd get other stuff to make the shipping cost worth it and it's still better than getting them from Canada.

The other option is EBC Brake Kits (the RK series) on Amazon but shipping will be delayed because Amazon doesn't have them in stock.

For the price that you pay from RA and doing it yourself, get a good quality set to last you 4-5 years and don't cheap out. Stay away from Maxbrakes and no name to avoid aggravations.
