I am running PAGID pads front/rear with zimmerman OEM sized rotors and High temp DOT 4 fluid and SS goodridge lines
it stops awesome. no fade at all.
If i did it again - i might buy the 11" front rotors - but i am really happy with my brakes.

Ferodo DS2000 pads on 11" fronts. I've been very happy with Ferodo pads for years now... had one unfortunate fling with Metalmasters prior to that. Not a great pad.

Should I throw on the stainless lines I have too? Do they make that big of a difference?

They don't make a massive difference but you should notice a difference in the firmness of your pedal under heavy ish braking. For what it's worth, i've got ATE powerdiscs and EBC greens on mine and they work really nicely!

I hear bad things such as they are illegal to use on the street! Im more afraid removing the old brake line more than anything
