new front discs and pads on D2, advices ?

pads are done, discs are rusty and thinner, time for a complete change.
I know it's not a defender, but any advice on what to buy will be greatly appreciated. So far i'm thinking DBA discs and genuine pads.

hi. i dont know what DBA rotors are but i had installed stock replacement rotors by brembo and they warped.
i have never seen a genuine rotor on a disco warp.

i recomend original rotors and pads.

I've actually been running my original rotors for the past 50-60k miles or so w/o an issue. The original rotors/pads are the best way to go, especially when it comes to squealing and wear-time.

I've never had an issue with Brembo, noise or pulsation. Other than when they don't supply any for the Rover model and I have to go Genuine, I only use Brembo and Ferodo on my Rovers and my customer's Rovers.

I would strongly recommend against drilled and slotted rotors especially in a D1. Stick to genuine.

Actually the best rotors I've ever come across are Frozen Rotors. Last much longer, and never had one warp.

Genuine or Ferodo pads. I'm not sure about D1's, D2's, or Defenders, but the newer LR3's, RR, and RRS's are Ferodo pads in a Genuine box.

Drilled rotors are kind of a waste, IMO, for a Disco. The holes get clogged with dirt/mud, etc...

EBC makes a rotor for Rovers with dimples rather than holes. These dimples, along with slots, still help to allow the gas to vent under heavy braking.

What ever rotor you go with, make sure it's vented.
