Default Disc Brakes Question?

So my 2008 has a little shake when the brakes are applied and i can hear some rubbing noise at times so i will be replacing the brakes and depending on the price the rotors too. What should I stay away from? thanks!

Anything cheap quoted to you that's too good to be true. Your life depends on a good set of brakes.

Call all your local parts houses and check prices. Can vary a bunch. I use after market rotters all the time without any issues. Pads will be determined by how much wheel dust you are willing to tolerate. To be honest any pad will stop your car. In fact the cheap ones will tend to react quicker but will ware much quicker and dust up in excess. A middle grade or higher will be the best rout to go. If your car has rear drums, you might make sure there adjusted up correctly. To insure they are helping out the fronts. If they are not you could warp the new rotters again.
