Default '04 Accord brake job advice

I could use some advice for my 2004 Accord EX V6. The front rotors are
warped and I just moved to Colorado so I drive occasionally in the mountains
and want to replace everything. Also, the brakes are pretty touchy and grab
pretty bad when cold.

Everything is original so far. What I'm thinking of using is Brembo
replacement rotors and Akebono ProACT Ceramic pads for the front. I was
going to try to remove the glaze from the rear rotors and clean and re-use
the original pads on the rear.

Any ideas? Does this sound like a good combination?

Thanks.

read this before you mess with the rotors.

a little antiseize and a scraper are your friends.

use honda oem pads. great fade resistance, minimal dust, kind to
rotors... they even come with lube and squeal shims...

again, use new oem. if the disks really are glazed, drive with the hand
brake on for a little bit and get them hot - see if that helps.
