SSBC Calipers which pads

Does anyone know which pads to buy? I have made a couple phone calls but would like to have the order in before Monday morning. I have spent more time trying find pads than actually replacing, geesh.

Also just FYI different rotors big time difference in how quickly the pads wear. The expensive powerslot cry'd treated have 2/3 of the pads left, the one duralast rotor the pad is almost gone. I would thought duralast would be softer so the rotor would take some wear and the slots would cool so they would be near equal.

Cheers!

Re: SSBC Calipers which pads

Did you call SSBC themselves? Cryogenic treated rotors have been used on many vehicles like ambulances for years.

Re: SSBC Calipers which pads

Yes I did, I finally figured out what code they were. What a PITA.

Also "quick change" calipers, yea right, I guess they have never seen the bilstein calipers. Also who makes all the nuts bolts measurements of the thing in US/Imperial, really?? Even car manufactures switched in the 90's, for a reason. To some it up I could take there exact drawings, use there same manufacturing process and produce better calipers by just using metric system alone (please don't argue with me on this one, I am a metrologist and am sure of this). SSBC is a serious upgrade but the customer service is garbage and they could seriously improve and probably never will.

I agree with you but what the heck does being a metrologist have to do with it? You could put on a set of Welwood brakes.

Metrologist is the study of measurements (you might be confused with meterologist). I improve accuracy on machines down to the microns. So it is weird to understand but if they used metric instead of us for everything you technically have 2.5x the accuracy with their machine. The US automakers figured that out in the 90's, they didn't switch just because the hardware made more sense but parts came out better.
