For our 2008 GT500 we choose the Cross Drilled and Slotted rotors from Stillen. This install is on a GT500, but other models can use some of the info for a guide.
# FOR1700XS (front) $439 Shipped
# FOR1701XS (rear) $279 Shipped

We are also installing Stillen Matrex brake pads in the rear and Mintix pads in the front. This will give big improvements in braking and greatly reduce brake dust on your wheels. These are on the site as well.

Remove the 2 bolts from the back of the caliper and remove.
Remove the factory rotor clip from the stud and remove the rotor.
Install your new Stillen rotor (labeled RT&LT) and reinstall the caliper. (you don't need to reuse the rotor clip)

Use a punch and tap the brake pad retaining pins out of the caliper
Simply slide the pads out and replace with the new ones.

Rear:
Remove the 2 bolts from the back of the caliper and remove.
Remove the factory rotor clip from the stud and remove the rotor.
Install your new Stillen rotor (labeled RT&LT) (you don't need to reuse the rotor clip)

To replace the pads you will simply pop them out of the caliper and reinstall the new ones in the same fasion. You may need to screw in the piston to get back on the rotor. Using a brake tool or carfully using large pliers with soft jaws, slowly screw it in clockwise adding pressure to the piston.
Reinstall caliper and wheel.
