I knew my front brakes were overdue for changing but.. oy.












And the new toys:

Powerslot rotors (Part #'* 8250PSL and 8250PSR) with Raybestos Quiet-Stop ceramic pads

In my case, I bought them from a local distributor. In your case, http://www.ajusa.com

That works. I'll make a note of that and upgrade my brakes this spring. Thanks!

Wow those pads look pretty crappy. But I'm sure the new combo of PowerSlots and Ceramics is working pretty well right now .

Pads look a little heat cracked. However none of the material has fallen off and there was still plenty left.

Hope the powerslots cool the pads better for you.

Where there any heat cracks on the rotors or was it only the pads?

I'll bet money that the old rotors have heat stress fractures.... And how the heck hard do we get on the brakes? It takes a good bit to fracture the pads like that
