brakes

i've got a 93 Grand marquis, its 4 wheel disc, i was looking at purchsing cross drilled rotors but they only make them for the crown vic i was wondering if they are the same size? i wasn't sure if the vics had larger rotors. also do you notice a difference with cermanic pads vs normal ones?

Re: brakes

Grand Marquis rotors are the same size as Crown Vic rotors--they're the same car, basically. As far as the ceramic pads vs. OEM stuff, no idea.

Re: brakes

Cross drilled rotors are a waste of your money.

Re: brakes

Sure there is a difference, but for a daily driver, it's a waste of money. But of course, that is up to you.

Re: brakes

crossdrilled rotors are better. Talkingabout pads, go with metallic, ceramic pads will wear the rotor, that's why you get the lifetime warranty, i would rather buy pads every two years, instead of rotors.
