Default New Rear Brake Pads

The original pads were down to less than 50% and since I had already done the front brakes a few months ago I thought I might as well install the new Ceramic pads.

Man, I wish I had rear disc brakes.....
Those look so much better than having drums back there, not to mention they're so much easier to work on..

My fronts are warped thus pulsing like mad during high speed braking. I'm thinking of cross drilled and vented with ceramic pads, what are your thoughts on that combo for my 2000 ssei? Oh and I already did the red paint treatment too but I like your pontiac decals......maybe my next brake job..........

Stock rotors and ceramic pads are fine on a 2k+, I love mine their dust free and stop on a dime.

Paul the calipers look great, glad it all worked out
