Sources for New Brakes (1/4)

I have a 1987 and I need to replace my front and rear rotors and pads.  I am not looking to upgrade, just looking for good quality stock components.  I don't drive the car hard so stock performance is fine.  I am overwhelmed by the number of suppliers on line so I am hoping someone can give me a good suggestion for quality, reasonably priced parts.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Your local parts house will be the best supplier. They will have multiple grades, and will advise you of best for your use. Also, you can look at them and see what you are getting. Brand names will suit your needs the best.

I agree with manchester;  if you are not going for performance oriented parts, the local supplier is the place to go.
Example;

GM Parts Direct lists a front rotor at $38.42 and rear rotor at $36.16.
Autozone lists both at very little more money, and you don't have to pay shipping.
Another way of looking at this would be if you took the vehicle to a local, trusted garage for the brake job they would be using parts from Autozone, Advance Auto, NAPA or a similar supplier.

Thank you to both of you for your suggestions. Based on your suggestions I went to gm for the rotors and autozone for the pads. Great piece of mind ordering the gym rotors. Appreciate the help. Its a jungle out there! John
