in regards to price
i got the bendix ct standard pads for$55 and the bendix ultimate were $110.but the ultimates are a hard compound,good stopping power but will wear the rotors...

there are cheaper pads on the market, and also better ones.. but the bendix seem to do the job without costing a fortune

well if your doin it yourself u have to get the caliper compress tool for the rear calipers other wise they wont fit over the rotors


a $2.50 g-clamp does the job nicely


EA-ED are screw in pistons


only on the rear not up the front.

i agree with Troyman here

Went to repco just down the road cos the cars a C*** to drive atm and am getting some rotors for $89 each and silverline pads for like 30.
I am still wondering the break rubs atm. When I replase the rotor and pad will they still rub. Or it is just something that happens when the pads die.

Air in the brake lines. You need to bleed them properly as air must've got into the system during the brake replacement.
