Brake Pads

Up for a pad change soon and wondering what people think about ebc green stuff pads. Last time i was due for a pad change i stayed away from them cause my ear caught wispers that these pads leave material on the disc and pit them. Hence i decided to go bendix ultimates. Problem is i'm sick of washing my wheels cause of the bloody dust and they don't last long... i only got 18 months or about 15-20,000 kays out of them. Anyone had experience with them or other types of pads?

Re: Brake Pads

Try the Ferodo S2000 pads. I here they are comparable with Bendix Ultimates in braking but dont have as much dust. Im not too sure where you get them though.

Re: Brake Pads

I've had green stuff for about 4 months now. Haven't had a better pad. Not much dust and good braking ability.

Would recommend them.

Re: Brake Pads

EBC Green Stuff have a tendancy to warp rotors.
I would try the Ferodo's, or a good bendix pad.

Re: Brake Pads

Ive had bendix Advance with slotted rotors, and they dont like to be pushed beyond their limits. I found the brake pads made the rotors warp over time. This is just my experience.

Re: Brake Pads

I originally had the Bendix Standards (now called advanced) and they were absolutely shit. The brakes would fade (i.e overheat) after just one hard stop. I'm relatively pleased with the Bendix Ultimates i have on at the moment but they havn't lasted very long and the dust is really starting to get to me. As for the current bendix advanced, i have them fitted to our everyday shopping trolley (toyota corolla) and they squil until they're up to temp. Apparently they've changed the compound and the noise they make is so annoying i actually have to repeatedly stab the brakes to get some heat into the pads cause its THAT annoying. My mates got the same pads on his prelude, they dont squil but their overall braking performance is pretty crap.

Re: Brake Pads

just put a full set of TRW Lucas pads in the ED. not sure if you can buy them in aussie. nice pad material and the backing plate on the pad is rubber to stop squeaks. Ultimates stop ya very well but as others have said dust is a nightmare and I got 18000 out of the front ones I just took out... the Lucas ones are still bedding in but so far seem ok
