go with some nice ceramic pads, about $50 bucks. they're quiet, good braking ability, and they wont leave nasty dust all over your front rims. as for lines, ive never had a problem with oem replacement lines.

Sounds good. There are some grooves in the rotors...turn em or replace em?
it depends. some shops, like my local one, will turn them for $10 a piece. other places, like a napa store in buffalo i went to recently, said they would turn mine for $20 each on my 2002. then the guy found out new rotors were $28 a piece, and their brake machine was old and a PITA to use, so he just sold me the new rotors at cost, $21 each, so they didnt have to mess with their machine. you may as well get them turned as long as there is no rust pits or deep grooves, its cheap enough.

sure it might be "ok" but for $12 a rotor, why would you not want to get them turned? it takes out any warp they may have developed, it removes any hard/glazed spots created from any panic stops, and pretty much turns your old used rotor into a fresh new one, and gives you a nice flat, straight and true surface for your new pads/shoes to marry themselves to.
+1 thats exactly why i do mine every time i replace pads. and on my 04, i developed some pedal pulsation when i was trying to sell it. so instead of someone try and chew me down because of it, i spent the $20 and got them turned. that was the 2nd time they were turned in a little over a year, and they still had plenty of meat. i would definitely not wait until rotors are completely shot to do something about them.

Yeah, you'll need to replace the line... Good luck...
he will be fine. hes in cali. in ny, as soon as you touch the bleeder on one caliper, you replacin half the brake system because everything else you touch falls apart or strips the corners off.

Oh and while I have the rotors off I found out in need to replace my driver side hub :rant:
i didnt catch if yours is 4x4 or not, but if it is, check the rubber boots on the CV shaft. if they're ripped, you may as well replace the shaft cause it be shot within a year. and with your hub already out, you dont have to pop a balljoint to take the shaft out.
