View Full Version : Brake Pads

02-21-2001, 03:09 PM
I read the brake upgrades postings with interest. But I prefer to keep my aluminum S calipers. Currently running stock replacement pads...ate, I think. But since the asbestos has been removed, I feel that the brakes don't work as well as they used to. The system itself functions well, all a-okay, I change fluid often. But, is there a street pad that works better than stock replacement pads? Guess what I'm really asking, is it worth the extra $ to get Pagid blue, something else advertised out there? Or, would I be as well off saving the $, stay with stock pads?
Maybe I should have titled this a brake pad survey, because that's what I'm really asking for...

You can have it both ways ... you can stick with the
factory manufacture but can upgrade to a more aggressive pad .... I belive TEXTAR (OEM) makes a 'high
performance' pad for our cars that stops like hell,and
doesn't cost a bunch more then stock, however they do
throw a lot of dust.
