Hi

What brake pads are recomended for a std 280ZX strut n caliper set up? I believe that Mintex and EBC supply suitable pads.

Occaisonal fast street driving is anticipated so pad quality must be good.

Hi
I've used EBC greenstuff pads on my last 2 everyday cars, both escorts! in both cases after initial running in
which takes at least 200 miles before they seem to really bed in, there is a decernable increase in stopping power
especially when standing the car on its nose!

Also the claim about minimal brake dust is very true, i only clean the alloys once every couple of months
instead of every other week and even then they are not caked in the stuff.
I would certainly be willing to try them on my 260 but i have'nt got round to sourcing any.:o :o :o

Hope this is useful

I have high metallic, low dusting USA import pads available - good feedback from users across the model range.
