    The HPS are highly recommended/reviewed everywhere. I think they are a safe bet and are tried and true. I would go for ss lines and new brake fluid while you are at it. It made a good difference in brake pedal feel for me when I changed that out. I was also considering the MC brace, but didn't want to deal with the PITA install. I figure I will do it somewhere down the road when I am doing something major to my engine and don't have to squeeze the thing in there.

    I know it's been beat to death in this thread, but I just thought I would add that my Michelin Pilot Super Sports and custom alignment are probably my favorite modifications so far.

    yeah, i'm gonna do those last 2 when I pick up the extra money. I was surprised that TIC recommended the HPS+ pads because of their (from what I've read) tendency not to bite as well during the cold months. I have the Goodridge phantom lines already... I can't say that they did a massive amount for me in terms of pedal feel (also did change the fluid, but i'm not convinced that the superblue had some kind of super high compression amount, and i'm not tracking the car so i'm not worried about continuous stops. I just added Valvoline fluid instead.

    The also had recommended the MC brace... and I know they know their stuff but man I've been reading more and more and no one has seemed to have an easy time on that install.
    I have to say that I have found AutoZone mid-grade ceramic pads totally good for the street. They'd fade on the track, and there I use better pads. But for the street, they are totally fine. I guess I don;t understand what others do on the street that seems to cause so many complaints about basic pads.

    Just ordered the ST's... they are to much cheaper to ignore over the Hawks... the reviews I read didn't impress me with the Hawks either.
