Well guys it looks like its time to do my breaks. I have a 2002L 1.5 accent
Questions i have:
1. Which break pads to get?
2. Which break shoes to get?
3. Where to get some good rotors? (was thinking about drilled or cross slotted)

Ideally it would be nice to buy everything from the same place if possible.
Links or names of sites would be awesome.
I know fasthyundai.com has some KVR's I think. But let me know what work best for out Accents.

Well...

Since yuo have 17's, and I dont think you want to be cleaning them allllllllllll the time, I'd stay away from the slotted/drilled/dimpled rotors and just get some decent Brembo blanks. They work awesome, great for a D/D and they're usually really clean when it comes to brake dust. I've had the drilled, played with just the slotted, drilled + slotted and slotted + dimpled and it's kinda hard to tell the difference on the street except that the drilled + slotted did stop noticably better but were noisy as **** sometimes, and had an incredible amount of dust due to the added wear on the pads. But, if you really want them, I'd go with the slotted and dimpled because the drilled tend to warp and drilled + slotted are prone to shattering under stress.

For pads, I'd personally get some nice EBC Green Stuff pads. They're great for daily driving running cold and even running warm/hot. Hawk HPS's are great pads too, but they're a bit more aggressive for track use. The Porterfield pads are great too. I had the Porterfield Rs-4's on my DSM for track days and my friends ran the Panther +'s. Just depends on what you use them for. I can't help you w/shoes tho... Sowwy

there you go!
as long as it stops i guess you're good - if you are turboing it, i would upgrade the brakes - butttt in my case with my car that doesn't even like getting up to highway speeds, my napa brakes are superstars! lol

you should get nice new calipers, and paint them pink! lol Pink is the way to go! JK!

Slotted or Drilled rotors are mainly for sure. Goto Tire Rack and get the brembo rotors (if you must, any auto part store rotors will be basically the same), and Hawk HPS or HP+. I liked them a lot on every car I've had them on.
