Good Place to Buy Brakes?

Cobalts going to be hitting 20k miles soon. I would really like to put some great brakes on it. Looking for something that's going to last, and work with slotted rotors if I choose to get them down the road. Any ideas?

Also, is there a way to get a stabilizer bar to go between my strut towers? I just like the look of it, and want to add some color under the hood.
Thanks guys

I got all my stuff from R1 Concepts. Just went all out and got the rotors (double-drilled/slotted) and pads (Hawk HPS) at once. Paid $410 shipped for everything, and the labor was free. lol But, for just pads, their prices are still pretty good.

Depends on how your going to use the car... If you want something close to stock, autozone isn't to bad... even for slightly better you can get ceramic pads through autozone or any parts store...

ZZP sells shock tower braces, but from what I hear, they don't offer any noticeable performance related effects.
