Default Brake Pads

I will be replacing my brake pads soon on my 03 Civic EX, and I want to
replace them with high quality pads. Of the various brake pad
technologies
out there, what is the best and can anyone recommend any brands?

Thanks
Glenn

Default Re: Brake Pads

From reading here and pricing brake pads over the last 15
years (for my 91 Civic LX, 176k miles), I think OEM is the
way to go. First, OEM costs about the same as high quality
non-OEM. Second, IIRC less dust results from the OEM ones.
Third, and perhaps the most important, the so-called
"long-life" non-OEM pads get their long life via using a
harder material. That produces more wear and tear on the
brake rotors.

Online OEM Honda parts stores:
www.slhonda.com (parts section, in California)
www.cheapesthondaparts.com (Colorado)
www.hondaautomotiveparts.com (Rhode Island)

I have used all three and was satisfied, though keep an idea
on the Colorado outfit. I had to follow up with phone calls
twice recently to make sure my order was shipped. Otherwise,
I think the Colorado store is the best deal for prices and
shipping costs.

stick with oem. best fade resistance, best squeal resistance, least
dust, most disk friendly. fade resistance is by far the most important.
a lot of aftermarket pads are abysmal in this respect. it may not be
apparent when first using a set of after-market pads, but when you're
descending a multi-mile steep mountain switchback with a loaded car,
believe me, you figure out what you're missing real quick.

That should be "... keep an eye... "


(There such a thing as benign online dyslexia?)

I have Raybestos QuiteStops on my '03 Accord right now front and rear
and am very happy with them about 1 year into use. I believe that they
are a ceramic type formulation. Considering that the factory rear pads
wore out so rapidly and that the factory front disks warped at a young
age I saw no reason to buy Honda replacement parts.
