80k and time to do the brakes. Not interested in doing a "Big Brake Kit", no need OEM is fine. Unfortunately, OEM pricing... not so fine.

I came across the StopTech Street Axle Pack 935.44060. Calipers are fine, just need the wear parts. Kit includes 4ea drilled and slotted rotors w/ pads for under $500.

Has anyone gone this direction? Could use some feedback.

I have no experience with the kit but I'd buy it from the link below and save $100. I went with plain front rotors from Centric, haven't installed them yet. I've seen mud get clogged in the slotted and drilled type rotors. I can only imagine how that effects the pad wear. To each their own. It is advertised as a "street" kit. Also you may be aware but I'd stay away from any drilled rotors as they can crack. The second link might be a better, slightly cheaper option.

Most of your performance upgrade comes from pads anyway. I swapped to the TRD pads with OE rotors that have 135k on them and can really tell a difference. The higher performance pads fade way later and are designed to bite the same at a higher temperature range. The downside is that when cold they require extra pedal force to provide the same stopping force as the cheap pads during the pull out of the driveway (think race car brakes). Probably TMI but that's my experience with brake upgrades this far.
