Hi,

would just like to know, will i realise better performance in braking on my ED Falcon if i use Bendix Ultimate brakes, compared to the standard brakes i use branded ADB(think its adb)?

How much do they cost for a pair, and will i get an increase in rotor wear?

thanks

You will get a massive increase in rotor wear with Bendix ultimates. I would look at getting EBC Greenstuff pads, they have less dust and better breaking performance and will make your rotors last longer. The Bendix cause heaps of brake dust and really chew into the rotors to get better braking. So yes they will perform better but cost you more in the long run. Get EBC Greenstuff pads.

You could get the EBC Greenstuff pads mailed up from Melb cheaply, have chat to High-tek Brakes, they sponsor the sight also.
Awesome pads, and the guys down at hightek are friendly with unbeatale prices.
Highly reccomended!

so these EBC greenpads, have perfomance braking capability, but dont cause extra wear?


how do EBC pads comapre to standard soft brake pads in relation to rotor wear?

how much are EBC pads for an ED, front and rear?

thanks
