I am looking at replacing all my brakes, but was curious if anyone knows the best way to go when replacing the brake pads and rotors on a Land Rover LR2?

I have looked at Atlantic British's site and saw these three options for brake kits:

There are 3 options:
The Standard Rotors and Ferodo Pads
LR2 Brake Rebuild Kits: Brakes For LR2 And Freelander 2

The OEM Land Rover Rotors and Pads
Brake Rebuild Kit - Front & Rear - Land Rover kits from Atlantic British

or the uber expensive EBC option:
Brake Rebuild Kit Frt/Rear EBC - Land Rover kits from Atlantic British

I am not all that keen on spending nearly $1000 for just the parts, so I think the 3rd option is out of the running. Does anyone know about the Standard rotors and Ferodo pads? I have also heard people say I should go with ceramic pads. Is this a wise decision, and if so what brands would you recommend?

Does anyone have any experience replacing their brakes? What did you choose? And how did it turn out?

Did the front brakes today. NAPA Premium Rotors (ie Raybestos), Textar semi-metallic pads, Carquest Pad Clips. I re-used the torque-plate bolts (cleaned them and applied blue loctite).

The pad clips were in fine shape, I seriously doubt they needed to be replaced but I bought them in advance so what the heck.

Works fine, no noise. We'll see if they still make dust like OEM. I'll be doing a trailer trip in the mountains next month (3500# camper), so that will be the real test.

Update: a couple thousand miles including a a trip to the Sierras with a 3500# trailer, all is good. Less dust than OEM pads by a significant margin but still a little dust. Might try ceramics next time.
