1. how would you describe your driving style ?
2. why are you looking to change your brakes ? are they worn ? are you having any problems ?

i would suggest either plain or slotted rotors (not drilled , they do nothing special)

as for rotors , there are many companies that sell them . here's a link to a forum vendor :
https://www.nissanclub.com/forums/ven...-ss-lines.html


as for brake pads , there are many choices and i can help more when you answer the 2 questions above .

instead of getting new rotors you could alwaya have urs cut to make a clean surface if there is enough metal left. A shop by me does it for 10$ a rotor so you could prob save some money since you dont need highperformace rotors with your driving style..unless you are goin for looks.

getting new rotors and pads is a good thing and fairly cheap . the link i posted has front and rear blanks (no slot , no drill) all 4 for $160 , pads are $80-90 and shipping is $45 .

i would also suggest doing/having done a simple brake fluid bled .

i don't know what rotors are on your car now (nissan or aftermarket) , but factory nissan rotors are not of the highest quality , i wouldn't cut(turn) factory rotors they will just warp faster .

P.S. you have a 2003 2.5 altima , there are recalls for that car , call/go to the dealer , give them your VIN# and let them tell you if you need any recalls fixed .

my cousin who lives out the country told me about Raybestos pads he told those were really good.. does anyone know bout it...
and also he told me bout Akebono ProACT Ceramic Brake Pads....

well other than that axxis... so those r my three top options....

Bout the recalls if my car has any recall are they gonna charge me to fix the recalls??>.... i dont know how that works...

Thanks to everybody... i appreciate that u guys r answering my question!!

axxis are good and i hear akebono is also good .
there are alot of choices , what are you looking for in brakes ? long life , low dust , high performance , etc ? you can't get a pad that's 100% of everything , there will be trade off's

any recalls would cost you nothing , its just nissan correcting a bad design .

the akebono might be a good choice for you then . the axxis/pbr ultimates are good for performance but they dust alot .

Do I Need to Remove the 30mm Nut?

I am trying to remove the rotor on my 05 Sentra (1.8L). Having a tough time. Do I need to remove the 30mm nut in the center? That is the nut that is protected by a cotter pin. I see behind the nut is a spline. I am suspecting the rotor have no spline and the spline is part of the hub?
