Default LS 460L Big Brake Packages

Any recommendations on Big brake packages? Which are best rated overall...longevity, easy to find replacement parts, no squeeling or excesive brake dust. Thinking with 22 inch wheels I will want a better breaking system...I see people here use a couple different brands.

I would recommend Brembo.

Rominl had a set before on his LS I would recommend contacting him!

i had brembo and i guess it needs no explanation. price is high but they are quality stuff. some other brands, i won't go into details, but they are nothing but problems down the road

+1 go with the Brembos, you can save money with Rotoras but after a couple thousand miles the rotors will warp.

endless, brembo, project mu, ap racing, alcon, are the reputable, big baller brakes.

i would try my best to stay away from rotora, wp pro, and the made in china/taiwan stuff.

oem > cheap parts!

yup. but doesn't necessarily means it's a problem. they actually studied the rear as well and i think they ended up believing just the front setup is more balanced

Why not just get proper light weight 22" wheels
The oem setup isn't thaaaaat bad, with enough LS owners we could work with a vendor and get custom slotted or xdrilled rotors made (to fit within oem caliper)
