Yes, redstuff is what the website recommends, and what has been recommended to me. The older redstuff pads were prone to noise, and had to be warmed up, but apparently the newer ceramic pads are good cold, better hot and relatively quiet.

I'm getting some fitted soon so will be able to let you know results.

Had new rotors (330mm RDA's) and EBC redstuff pads fitted yesterday. They immediately seem alot better than my previous pads which were Ferodos. So far they're quiet, smooth and have good brake feel, while still bedding in.

Hopefully they won't heat up and warp the new disks like the last pads (apparently that's what caused 3 sets of RDA's to warp). They seem like good pads - they're ceramic and the box indicates they're made for the aston martin vantage!

It does sound good for an AU, but it is not possible for an E Series.

We are stuck with STD size slotted replacements or a big $$$ investment for a kit.

Still waiting to fit my kits.

But man - the front end is really really starting to get wobbly under brakes recently.

I hope that it is only warped rotors, because if it isn't whell aligmnemnt and it isn't warped rotors, then it literally feel like something else has bent - it is that bad.

Hi all,

Emergency question.....


I'm trying to put my new rotors on right now, it had new cups in them but I figured the same brand would be a better idea so I knocked them out... now I can't get them back in again.... (turns out they are the same brand and model (repco)....

so how do I get the bearing cups pressed back into the rotor without damaging them????

I tried a rubber mallet and a wooden block but these things are tight....

suggestions please good folks?

Do you still have the old bearing cups?

If so I use them to sit on the new ones and use a normal hammer to tap one side and then the other etc.

Keep doing this until the new cups go home. The sound of the hammer will change.

Hope that helps.

Cheers
BenJ

Ill definately steer clear of them brake upgrades then thanks, not sure what upgrade i have on my fronts but definately bigger rotor and its slotted but kind of 2 continuos ovals going around the rotor... not like your typical straight slot... on the calliper itself it says PBR, im pretty sure my rears are standard tho? i have been told its the premium brake upgrade from ford at factory, because the calliper used to be black with ford in white paint, until i sprayed it red of course. its on a ba xrt if it helps

Actually, brake upgrades for AU11 and BA onwards are quite easy to do and cheap in comparison to good upgrade options for E Series Fords.

Hopefully one day there will be a cost effective option to use the later model brakes on our much loved E Series.

Cheers
