Re: When will I need new Brake Pads?

So its likely the first owner could have done them as it had 85k on it when I got the CJ. Still need to talk to the dealer aka the extended warranty. As far as I know brakes are not a part of the agreed services and I can do them else where... like my garage :) Might end up doing the pads then new r...

Re: Brake Rotor/Pads Recommendations?

Unless you can test tyres back to back its hard to judge which is truly best, thats why they have tyre tests in magazine (remember those) and online. But it also depends on the car they are fitted to, a tyre that works on a small car might not work on a big sedan or wagon.

Re: When will I need new Brake Pads?

Would dealers use them when doing the work or something else like Bendix?

Are the stock pads any better worse?

Re: When will I need new Brake Pads?

Ok so it depends on what you want, could be cheaper to just get a new set, depending on their value. If the stock rotors are still ok I don't plan on binning them, I'll hang on to them if they are needed later or by the next owner. Anyone know what the dealers usually use or if there is a brand name...

Re: When will I need new Brake Pads?

Okay so had some time to kill before an appointment so dropped into a few places. Mitsubishi - $410 ($225F/$185R) didn't ask about fitting. JAX - $370 fitted using Bendix (high quality ones?) Repco - $170 for the Bendix pads (about $85 each end) Repco also has the Kangaroo Paw DBA rotor but over $70...

Re: When will I need new Brake Pads?

Thanks for the links. I'll keep them in mind. Silly question, the CJ like most production cars has solid rear rotors, not vented. Yes I know they do less work but are there any vented (not drilled) options that fit? If I had unlimited funds than some genuine Brembo calibers all round wound be nice, ...

I regularly wash the wheels so not a big deal.

Re: When will I need new Brake Pads?

Wouldn't surprise me. So how many kays have others done on one set of pads from new? Like I said not sure if the previous owner put pads in, it was about 5yo and 75k on the ODO when I got it, now 135k and closing in on 10yo. I'll get some quotes, make sure doing the pads/rotors DIY doesn't void any ...

Re: When will I need new Brake Pads?

No, never felt better.

I don't do many kays each week, so I'll aim to get the parts by early in the new year and have the work done within 6 months, but sooner hopefully.

Still weird the dealer didn't try selling me on the parts last month.

Re: When will I need new Brake Pads?

Amazing that the dealer didn't try and push for them to do the work or even speak to me that they needed to be done before the next service. Once they called me mid service to tell me it needed a tyre rotation.

So 3 months, I'll get on to it.

Thanks again.

Re: When will I need new Brake Pads?

Yes it helps but the question was how much more life can I expect with just 3mm of meat left on them, according to the dealer.

3 - 6 - 12 months?

I know it depends on a bunch of stuff but just as a guide.

Also would I need to remove the wheel to check the pads?

When will I need new Brake Pads?

So looking at new brake pads soon, considering new slotted rotors at the same time, different topic on another threads. BUT the thing I need to know it how soon will I need them? At the last service a few weeks ago they said I had 5mm left (all round I assume) and at 2mm I'd need new pads and maybe ...

Re: Brake Rotor/Pads Recommendations?

Done about 14k on them now, including about 10k road trip interstate. Predictable is a good description. Had Kumho tyres before and I think these are just better. Braking is great avoided hitting an Emu near Broken Hill. I think they are quieter and handles better. Not pushed them to the limit but t...

Re: Brake Rotor/Pads Recommendations?

Had to stop suddenly today in the wet, less than 50kph but it was the first time in a long time the ABS has kicked in, that and the RE003s really worked for me today. Some idiot was trying to pass me where their lane was ending in a school zone, after 9am so I wasn't speeding. Why do Landrover 'spor...
