RE: 98S70 non-Turbo

I am ordering parts from FCP..suspension and Brakes. This is for a light to moderately driven family car. Are there any reasons to purchase one manufacturer brake disc over another .. choices being
Brembo
Ate
Zimmerman cross drilled ?

Also, how many miles do the strut mounts usually last on these cars?
Thanks
Mike

Brembo's are now made all over the world...ones from one country are great- ones from China are crap... people have had strange problems with them. I've never heard anything bad about Zimmerman's- buy those. Btw, I bought some from eBay (cross drilled and slotted w/ a diamond cut and zinc plated) and paid about $200 for 4 shipped... they've been great!. If you want to know the vendor, I'll look it up for you- can't remember right off the bat but seems like R-1 Concepts or something like that.

+1 for Zimmerman. I've been using them for about 7 years now. They seem to last and wear better than the Brembo rotors and the ATE at half the price.

The Zimmerman's are made in Germany so I think there's a certain level of quality control you know you're getting.
I use there X-drilled rotors and they've been great and lasted quite a long time now.

+2.
I use regular ones (not drilled) though.

i bought the set of R1concepts cross drilled slotted and zinc plated rotors, i can honestly say these things are fantastic. i have had them on for about a year and a half now and they have great stopping power, plus they wear like iron. http://********************/smile/emthup.gif http://********************/smile/emthup.gif

How well does the zinc plating hold up in winter driving? I bought a pair of silver-cad plated rotors for my wife's R and they looked like crap after one winter.
