Re:


Not sure about your choice Michael, as I had major problems when using EBC Green Stuff brake pads with slotted rotors and I was advised by both EBC and DBA against such a combination. I have experienced major vibrations which required the rotors to be machined more than once, as the brake dust from the EBC pads was getting trapped in the slots.

EBC pads compound material is too soft to be used with slotted discs. They perform prefectly fine with standard discs.

Re: T31 X-Trail Brake Pads & Rotors


Just reporting back on the DBA slotted rotors and Bendix 4WD pads I have installed on the front recently. They are brilliant. Have been over the Blue Mountains with the camper trailer twice in the last month. Once before the install and once after. Huge difference. No fade, no vibrations. Really impressed. Will be getting the Bendix pads on the rear before next service.

Great news Todd, they should last a lot longer than standard rotors too.

Re:


Indeed and you will the braking power will certainly improve as well. At least that is what I felt with the T30 when I fitted the exact same combination.

Re: T31 X-Trail Brake Pads & Rotors


I've got new DBA rotors on order now. Standard for the rear and slotted for the front.

Now going to get the Bendix 4WD pads and AutoOne are saying to get the ABD brand instead of Bendix and they're about $55 vs $105 for Bendix.
Any one had any experience with ABD?

Re:


$105 for something that saves your life and lasts a long time versus a $50 [sign in to see URL] brainer for me, particularly given the spend on new rotors too. I wouldn't bat an eye at the $50 for the proven brand and the cost calculated over the life of the pads emoticon

I have stock at the moment and will look at slotted rotors when the front pads wear [sign in to see URL] Bendix pads.

Cheers,
Mark

Re:


$105 is RRP. I've seen the Bendix 4WD Pads for about $80-$88 online (not sure on shipping)

Anyway... my job for the weekend is to install these puppies on the front emoticon

Don't have a photo of my GreenStuff ones.

Hopefully with the new slotted pattern, my RDA/EBC combo will be good.

$91 on eBay looks good. They also have the ABD's on there but I will stay away.

I got the rear DB1509's today but they are the blue box. I need to swap them for the red box 4wd 1509 pads right?
