I second (or third) the Hawk HPS pads. They are great so far. The Power Stop rotors I bought were 31 pounds for shipping. They are very thick, thicker than the OEM rotors. The cross drilled holes are chamfered so they don't create any heat or stress points.

Here is a quote from that website (above)
Some people prefer slotted rotors because of problems that came about when cross drilled rotors first came to market. At that time, quite frequently the holes were drilled too large, penetrated the cooling vanes, and were not radiused or chamfered. The end result was that the rotor lost its structural integrity and tended to crack, so slotted rotors were developed. Today, we rarely experience problem with cross drilled rotors unless they are subjected to extreme abuse, such as in competition. They do help dissipate the hot gasses, but not to the same degree as cross drilled, usually lowering operating temperatures about 100 degrees. They also tend to wear brake pads quicker because the slots act like a razor blade each time they go by. We always recommend cross drilled unless you are particularly concerned with structural integrity.

Power stop and Hawk HPS pads work great together, thats the same combo I'm using. I'd seen the Wombat article during my research as well.
