: Brake Dust

11-18-06, 10:48 AM
Can anyone tell me where I can purchase dust free brake pads. I just bought a 05 SRX and the dust that gets on the wheels is bad. I tried brake-world but no luck. I purchased rotex gold for my crossfire and they work great.

After having done a ton of research, there is not a whole lot out there for decent low-dust after-market pads. You have basically two choices: EBC RedStuff Ceramic or Raybestos "Quiet Stop" Ceramic. The EBC's are readily available online e.g. car-stuff.com.
I have part numbers for the Raybestos:
PGD1019AQS fronts and PGD1020AQS rears.

Replaced mine w/ NAPA pads (their top of the line, but I don't have the #'s), and they have been great!

AC Delco makes the Durastop Ceramic pads--- You can pick them up at the dealer for around 78 bucks. We use them everyday for complaints of dust and noise---they work well. Supercrew632

I purchased some aftermarket bendix pads for about $50.00 a set with lifetime wear warranty. Put about 500 miles on them work great no more brake dust!!!!

I put on the Raybestos QS Ceramic pads 2 weeks ago - the dust buildup on the wheels is gone! Nice and clean.
Seemed like the stock pads had some kind of black glue mixed in with the pad compound :-)
