Brake pads for luxury running

If you check my old posts I have been searching for a good pad for ďluxury runningĒ... thatís pre running for those of us who no longer or never did race.

But running the high desert, etc etc etc.

Iíve been experimenting with different pads and there is not much available for us in the first place. And for anything more than daily driving there is nothing really worth a darn. R1 only offers their quiet street pad versions that have a limit when hammering. Same with stoptech, same with... well everyone. (I hate ebc)... there are three other companies that make essentially stock replacements.

I reached out to porterfield as they make the R4s pad which will be a great pad if you care about noise and would have been the pad for me if I did. Itís highly chamfered for noise reduction but you loose a lot of surface area. This is a trade off I didnít want because Iím focusing more on braking and less about civility.

I just got off the phone with them and they are going to make a set of R41 compound pads for me. They are not going to be cheap but itís the ideal pad for our weight and cold to hot use etc. May squeel a little when cold and slow. May not.

Price is going to be expensive since it will be a one off set, but they are going to take care of me on a set of stoptech slotted rotors in a package.

If anyone is interested in some no joke pads, pm me and maybe if we get a few sets ordered up at the same time, the price can come down.

Canít wait to actually have good pedal feel and consistent brake ability!

What pads? Resurface your rotors and then do a good bed in.

Naw, it's the horrific squeak from the pads rattling around in the caliper. My 2016 had the same problem and all new brakes didn't fix it. I tried new pads, coating pads, lubing the pads etc and nothing works for long. GM knows there is a problem but haven't developed a fix yet.

#8, the spring clip that holds the pads in. Sometimes if those get bent they will rattle and/or allow the pads to rattle.

Ohh gotcha. Yeah those are in. When I replaced the pads I used new clips just in case. Still noisy. The only thing that fixes it is brake grease on the backs of the pads, sometimes, and it doesn't last long.
