Bendix or Ferodo, the only mid priced pads I'd go for. EBC if your looking for something higher up.
Either way that definately shouldn't have happened - take em abck for warrenty/refund.

DUH YES - ITS NOT ROCKET SCIENCE - and with new pads i dont think you could have the spring on the inside and fit it on the rotor anyway

ive done dozens of brake jobs and never seen anything like this :evil:

My bendix ultimates are just as bad.. don't think I'll be using them again to be honest, just too annoying in day to day driving.
