I'm just a bit curious. I have to replace my brakes because the car shudders while braking and the the brake pedal can be depressed very far along with terrible stopping distance. In other words, I need to think about replacement. Since my Cobalt is front disk and rear drum I only need to do the front. I was wondering if it would be stupid to take to a shop to have the rotors turned and the pads replaced rather than ordering the rotors online and pads online. That is the way I am leaning and I wanted to get your opinion on brake pad brands, because I don't want to go OEM. My car has 19,500 miles and the pads are about gone. (no squeaking yet) I haven't looked at the rotors yet, just speculating the possibility of replacing them.
