Small technical update: I recently installed new front brakes.
Fed up with my slightly wobbly rotors and crappy pads, so I got some new stuff for the front. My original plan was to go with EBC rotors and pads for the front, but after a lot of reading online, I opted against it. See, EBC Green Stuff pads are organic, which makes them bite pretty well, but they don't last very long and apparently dust like crazy. Some people reported getting as little as 20k out of them. That's not acceptable to me, so I started reading up on some other stuff. I had also decided against drilled or slotted rotors. Drilled rotors seem to have a tendency to crack under continuous heating and can have the holes fill up with small rocks and mud, and slotted rotors would give me trouble if I ever wanted someone to resurface them down the line. So that didn't seem like the best way to go for me.
Armed with this new information, I did a bit more digging. A new breakout favorite pad was the Raybestos EHT (Enhanced Hybrid Technology) brake pad. It's a hybrid of the semi-metallic and ceramic pad types, so you get the bite of semi-metallic and the heat resistance of ceramic. Cool. Plus, they have a GG heat rating, which means they're very good when they're hot. I did a lot of reading on them, and they have been given high praise, other than occasional extra noise for some people. Plus, they're only $44 on RockAuto. Hard to beat that. I opted to pair them with Raybestos Advanced Technology rotors. Not a lot to brag about here other than a really nice anti-rust coating and apparently metallurgy that makes them quieter. I guess. Either way, the fit and finish is great and the price was right at $90 for the pair.
I got the chance to install them a few days ago, and I am so pleased I did. The brake performance is definitely better! Stopping distance seems shorter and the brakes really do seem to bite better. Plus the slight wobble is completely gone. Very happy with the small upgrade.
