I need a suggestion for some very good/excellent (made in USA if possible) rotors and pads, front and rear, for my '03 Pathfinder. Thanks in advance.

You don't have rotors on the rear, so you save some money there.

Buy the pads from the dealership and get the rotors at an Autozone or Murrays cause it's cheaper than the dealership.

Metro... what's your opinion of ceramic brake pads? I've heard they last longer, less dust and no squeal.

Thanks...Yes, of course there are no rotors on the rear. I just had a brain cramp. I usually buy rotors at NAPA, but I was thinking about upgrading to Power Slot or EBC, something like that.

Raybestos Quiet Stop pads are probably your best bet for money to quality ratio. They are ceramic and you are right; they are NO squeal and very little brake dust. As far as rotors go; If you are just doing normal driving and no extreme braking then the cheap rotors at advance or auto zone are as good as any just be sure to clean the shipping oil off the rotors before installation.

Couple guys from work have used them and one said they last for a while with hardly any dust and no squealing. His lasted about 100,000km and only needed them for the front as most of the weight during stopping is on the front end.

I wouldn't buy anything from the dealer. Get some Brembo rotors and Hawk light truck pads, they will stop better than stock and last longer.
