I just bought a Ford 2004 BA XT Ute:

Now I need new brake pads, so I bought these from super cheap auto, front and rear Under $90..

I'm sorry about the quality of the photo's, long story.

Anyway the lady at super cheap said that the rear pads on the BA utes have two different kind, I have gotten the DB1376CAL rear Pads..

Will these be fine for my car? Or will I need to change them for another kind? ANY info would be much appreciated. Once I open them I cant return them..

Could anyone help me out or give me some info I can use to make sure I don't shoot myself in the leg?

Thanks.

Seems to agree with the manufacturers catalogue;

https://www.bendix.com.au/catalogue/228100

I think the other pads mentioned must have been the park brake shoe. This sits inside the 'drum' of the Rear disc rotor.

In short, yes they are correct pads for a BA ute.

Yes they are DB1376 for BA ute but, I would be getting a better brand, like Bendix. Just my opinion?

Check the packaging. These are made by the same company that makes Bendix.

Pedant;
Forgive my ignorance but, they are a "cheap" brand.

I hear what your saying but I cant afford any more, I got no choice but to use these, its these or unroadworthy pads..

My exhaust had a hole it in, got that changed, got new spring on the front as it looked like the front was lowered but the springs where f**k, need 2 new tyres, wheel alignment and new other small things. My next pads will be MUCH better but with Rego and stuff I've spent like $1000 already more I think and down to my last $400, gotta go pay for the springs, they cost me $75 each + $150 installed.

I reckon im going to get flamed for this but it's all I can do, also with some research some people are VERY happy with DRA Rotors then their brake pads differ as one likes Bendix when another like some other brands..


Anyway I bought these off eBay for $187, now I got literally a few gold coins at most, im out of money.

My question is, from what I read here, these pads that come with the RDA rotors are made for each other. I'm thinking I should use them with the RDA rotors. Or should I use the Calibre pads I got from Super cheap?

Millions out their will and have been saying that these Calibre pads are rubbish, take them back and get Bendix ONLY but its not a race car, these, both sets of pads and Rotors have passed an Australian safety test, they are not the best BUT they are not unsafe.

I can return the Calibre for petrol money as I have half a tank of petrol only or..? Any ideas? Keep them for a later date? From what I can tell or what people are saying is that these Calibre leave too much brake dust, therefore what have I got to lose by using the RDA GP Max Pads? Both will/could give me a lot of brake dust.


They say 12 months warranty or 20,000kms, for the price I paid even if I only got 6 months out of them, then decide screw this never buying those again!!

But my main concern is that I read these RDA MAX GP Pads are specifically made to work well with RDA rotors.. So opinions please?
