Rotors for Sport Suspension A MUST?

I'm going to replace my OEM brake pads with ceramic because of excessive brake dust. I want to change the rotors as well while I'm at it.

My car has sport suspension. I'm having a hard time finding front rotors for sport suspension. Can I use rotors without sport suspension or is that a big NO?

Rear rotors for sport suspension are much easier to find than front ones. Thank you!

You can't change rotor version due to size differences (a new caliper would be needed).
You should be able to find the correct ones online

So when you change pads and rotors, new calibers also need to be changed?

No, no...
What I meant is that if you want to change to a different size disc (like the non sport) you would need the matching calipers.

When you use the same version you just change them.
