Not trying to be the total ass that I am (ask Goalie), but does a street driven Aura really NEED Zinc plated cross drilled front and rear rotors w carbon pads? I have no problem with people modifying their own cars as they so choose.

Just wondering what your driving motivation is for these upgrades......

Just to have more control of the braking.., the factory braking is sloppy for the engine size and power that's all ik it's not a beast but the braking Def needs some upgrading driving it at a spirited pace...

The upgraded mounts will increase vibration, especially if they aren't installed right, but the handling will be better. Check out a g6 forum to see what the steering/suspension upgrades are as well.

works for me.

My S cars are as stock as I can keep them (95, 97 SC2s).
So I'm always curious what is going through the minds of those who upgrade brakes, struts, lower the car --- meaning "is this being done for a logical reason or is this being done because the owner wants to show off"......all show, no go, I believe it goes

The brake upgrades on these cars, or the s cars, I don't really understand. Our braking systems are already more than enough for what we are throwing at it.

unless you plan to race the car, your rotors will cool without being drilled, you don't need multi piston calipers.

Maybe you just need some carefully chosen brake pads that heat up and become "sticky" faster. Like the compound Ford is using ---don't know what it is, but it kinda grips, kinda grips, kinda grips, GETS STICKY and gives you great control of the braking.

Also -- is it really the braking alone or is it body roll that's making you unhappy when you hang it out over a curve?

Agreed. Even pushing almost 300whp in the redline, I have never questioned the braking once.
