    HOT DAMN!!!! A little more than I thought it was going to be from there, but shipping is $107

    Anyone know anywhere that has this for less? Maybe it's because I use Prelude Vtec replacements, but jeez, blanks, and pads $500+?

    And when they say per axle set, is that four pads for the front, or two pads for the front?

    <----Is in Germany, doesn't have Autozone :(

    Maybe I'll look local, but the way things like that are priced here, who knows.

    Per axle should be for a full set of pads on two wheels. You usually don't see people sell pads one wheel at a time- you want to replace in pairs, right?

    I'd think the same of rotors too, but they are individual sales.

    I looked on Autozone.com, but I seemed to come to a dead end when I was trying to view my cart.

    lol.. i dunno... choose your car, pick the generic 'brake rotor front' there should be 2 choices asking for 'more information' choose vtec, then you should be able to see it... was working for me, you suck at the internet! :p

    Hahha, yes, I do :)

    I am going shopping tomorrow, but rotors are pricey around here, maybe I'll score.

    wooo thats about an hour west of me.

    Ok enough of the threadjacking and time wasting...um...

    Calesta showed me a place for some brakes...although rather expensive seem to be pretty decent, i'm not too sure if they have what you're looking for but it's worth a shot right?

    You should find a tire guy you trust out there that will buy you your supplies, and get stuff through him. I got powerslots for the front on my 91 integra for 80 apiece and a good set of carbon pads for like 50. Yeah, pads usually are sold in front and rear sets, I've never seen them for sale individually, cause you almost always have to replace the left and right side at the same time if your brakes are working right. Discs are not usually sold in pairs because they don't usually need to be replaced, just turned on a lathe. Anyway, I couldn't see the rotors costing that much, but prelude parts ARE more expensive than civic or integra parts.

    I am using the rear complete hubs, front complete knuckles with calipers from a 99 Aerodeck VTi, and 3mm spacers so that the four lug ITR rims don't hit the calipers.

    John, you might just want to check out prices at honda if you dont have a parts store around you. Honda here charges like 80 for a set.

    Or, if your rotors have excepetible clearance, just get them turned. Machine shops will only charge like 10 a rotor.
