Well guys the time has come and my front brakes are f**k.

So to get my out of trouble for the time being im going to my old work to get some nearly new and machined disc only cause i can get then cheap.

How much are pads (for brakes) going to cost me? Any idea's?

Cheers

Ben

front pads, Ferodo about $40.00 and Bosch $43.00, they are Sydney Super Cheap prices but shouldn't be much different.

I'd spring for new discs if I were you mate.
They aren't that expensive, DBA Slotted are like 110 ea for ABS fronts.
Last for ages, and machined/second hand discs with E-Series are a bit of a gamble.
Nothing like warped rotors to make your car feel like s**t.
Don't forget to do wheel bearings as well.

Ill be going to my old work to get the machined disks. If they are f**k i get new ones for free.

They will be cheap as. I Need to do them this week as they wont last the weekend as i dont feel safe and i have a fair few high speed trips too.

I only have a budget of around $150ish this week but ill think about totally new ones next week.

Shop around, i got my front done (DBA Slotted and bendix Adv. pad) for $224.
more to the point, for stopping power, standard ones are the same...the slots/drilled holes just help with life, cleaning, etc of the disc and infact stop the same as standard.
RDA are just as good as DBA so if your budget allows, grab em and with a set of pads, thats a pretty good price. cant comment on the pads though.

Went to my old work yesterday. Got 2 nearly perfect disc's for $20 each. They are almost brand new.

Then got my old boss to get me trade price on sone Bendix pads for $36. $12 less than normal price.

Im not really sure if they actually need machining because really they are in pretty good condition.
