You can get quality rotors from NAPA, autozone, etc if you get their better brand

Double Lol.

That has to be the worst brake setup ever. Lol.

My review of the HPS is low quality, poor fade resistance, awful modulation- all around poor performer. Everybody likes Performance Friction or EBC Red over Hawk.

Find a quiet pad that stops quicker than Performance Friction Z if you want to add something useful. I've tried all your pads and the PF work better. Lot's of whining in this thread.
