Best aftermarket brakes and rotors?

So my 07 CM is in need of a new set of pads and rotors within another thousand miles or so. I priced them out with Toyota here in Canada and they're saying for 4 rotors and brake pads all around it's going to cost me over $750 no including labour.

I called up my mechanic and he priced out some parts and is going to charge me $700 labour included.

I still think this is way overpriced , so I'm considering ordering some online from the USA and having them shipped to me and then having the installed.

What's the best aftermarket brake setup (pads and rotors) that won't cost me an arm and a leg? What's your experience and if you like your setup what did you pay and where did you get it from?

I've checked Ebay but I have no clue about brake companies . Anyone know anything about Hawk Performance brakes?

Any info will help .

There was an ad on craigs list a few days ago with some take-offs. Tried to find the ad again and it's gone.

They're all pretty expensive. I don't think 700 installed is too bad. Anything you go directly to toyota for is going to be expensive. Wether it be parts OR labor. But Brembo's are really good, as is the TRD setup but thats big bucks. Like i said no brake kits are "cheap".

Brembo big brake kit is gonna cost you $3500 with 15% off from autoanything and a TRD BBK will be about $3000 with the pads and this is without labor and you also need to run at least a 20 inch wheel for fitment.

Like jarrett said, $700 installed through your shop is pretty decent pricing. Unless you're towing heavy loads or planning to get larger wheels/tires, the stock brakes are more than enough to handle most loads.

If you're looking for some better performance without wanting to upgrade brakelines, calipers, etc., then take a look at slotted/cross-drilled rotors (eg: powerslots) and some EBC or Hawk pads.

^^Although he mentioned the 20" wheels. The offset of the wheels will also play into if they fit. Somebody on here had fitment issues, so he sold his wheels and got new ones. Unfortunately he didn't post up his offset for others to avoid that problem.
Also another brake company is SSBC I believe. And their not cheap, but they do have all 4 brakes covered.
