Ceramic Brakes

I have 2002 jeep grand cherokee six cylinder. I need to replace the
rear brakes. They are now the ceramic disk type. I don't like these brakes.
My question is do I have to reinstall ceramic brakes on this vehicle? What
would you recommend. Also the left rear rotor needs to be replaced. I
see the price for a new one are from $100 to $50. What is the difference
and what would you recommend? Thank you in advance for you help.

Are you sure they are ceramic and not mettalic? Anyway, they are brakes, they make you stop, don't go cheap. Use something like NAPAs application engineered pads or another brand that uses the same friction material as the OEM, or use the OEM pads from the dealer. The difference in the rotors is usally the number of cooling fins and type of metal used in there construction. Again don't go cheap unless you like a pulsating brake pedal or noise.
