I'd recommend the bendix advance and ultimate, though it your rotors are a bit shabby go the advance as the ultimates don't really get on well with the rotors.

Bendix also have a more recently introduced pad out, a ceramic material with the suffix GCT (ie. p/no: DB1108GCT front pads E-series) as opposed to AD for advanced and ULT for ultimates.

They are cheaper than Advances (RRP $55.00 IIRC) and they seem to be a great pad. About the same in terms of stopping power but they have this "Titanium Stripe" as per the label which says it virtually eliminates brake noise and has no dust.

We've been selling them as much as our advances and heard only good things. And the Tradies love them. Oh and they don't have to be bedded in either apparently.

Well i prefer Bendix too,have had no problems either at home or work.Another thing you might like to try when fiting pads is a very light thin smear of grease on the back of the pads and pad plates does help little to reduce the effect of squeeling brakes.But if you machine and or replace your disc's,fit pads properly and bed them in right.And take it easy on your brakes for at least 300 since new brakes fitted shouldnt have any problems.
