The rear brake pads of my 2001 seville STS need to be replaced. Can somebody recomment me some? There are so many listed at rockauto. And do I have to choose some where it says "except vehicles build for US market"?

Thanks for your answers!

No idea on that one - GM/Helm service manuals, maybe. Brake pad manufacturers and friction com[pounds are subject to much personal opinion. Personally, unless you regularly track or autocross the car the stock OEM (AC Delco) pads are just fine.

There are special torque settings for the bracket and slider pin bolts.

Remember that the rear caliper pistons must be screwed back into the caliper and the piston indents aligned with those on the pad backing plate.

Hi Submariner, I replaced the rear brake pads and braking fluid. I also replaced the Shocks and strutts. After this the ABS and TC warning Lights go on as soon as I put the ignition on. Do you have an idea why?

The entire original CVRSS performance suspension system is electronically active and monitored for faults. Use the car's built-in code scanner to find out what is setting Body or Chassis codes.

Incorrect struts/shocks, bad wiring connectors, faulty suspension controls, height sensor electricals or link rods. TC codes are usually associated with the 4 wheel speed sensors - faults.

Use the correct model and year group of instructions - by JimD.

It actually was a broken ABS wire at the RR Wheel. After repair the ABS and TC Lights don't give an error anymore.
Thanks for your advice!
