I have had good luck with the Akebono ProACT Ceramic Pads on tirerack. Low dust, stopping power seemed fine, and they lasted longer than the stock ones.

ANyone know where I can get said T30 torx screw? Just replaced wheel bearing today on my 04', and there was not a screw in it. Probably a terible question that will lead to extreme amounts of ridicule, but is it needed?

If you're asking about a 2004 SRX (in a Deville forum) then you're in the wrong place.

Our Seville/Deville rotors index on the hub center bore - a Torx would be there ONLY to prevent the rotor from falling off when the wheel is removed. Not really needed for a good install. My STS - with EBC rotors and Redstuff pads - has no screws through the rotors - just the studs.

No extra holes in the rotor flanges .......

Again - Seville/Deville/SRX - apples, oranges, cucumbers.

The bolt that holds the rotor on is there just for the production line. It keeps the rotor in place untill the wheel is attached. It serves no other purpose. Some corner assembies and rear axles come from the supplier to the plant with the brakes and rotors installed. They really need that bolt so they stay together.
Some people reinstall them after a brake job, some don't. If you leave it out no problem. If you reinstall it and you need to heat/easy out/drill to remove the rotor you might regret it.
Just thought you would be interested.
