hi,pacent said:... I am looking at the ATE Powerdiscs rotors and
It's not an issue about which pad material is quieter. The PBR/Axxis Metal Masters and Deluxe Plus pads are designed to be quieter but with proper installation using a quality Anti-Seize or Brake Squeal compound, and a good bed-in procedure you can prevent vibration which causes the annoying squeal.VWPassatGLX155 said:Yea, I was about to say... those were for rears . Thanks! If you're looking for some good rotors, I just found some slotted/crossdrilled at www.ecstuning.com. Look pretty nice too. Any idea what the quietest out of the Metal masters/Ultimates are? I have heared mixed reviews among the two pads. Some claim Ultimates are quieter/Grip harder, some claim its the metal masters... what is your take?

VWPassatGLX155, it depends on how experienced your mechanic is concerning brakes.VWPassatGLX155 said:Rear shims? Wouild a mechanic know to do this or is it something that would be a preference to reduce noise...
I don't want a pad that makes a lot of noise.
Yes, even Zimmerman rotors that are CRC drilled by a vendor will crack at the drill points. The plain faced Zimmerman and Brembo rotors are awesome but tuners screw them up by drilling holes in them!! If you want quality cross-drilled rotors, you might want to spend the extra money on one's from Disc Brake Australia which are forged. DBA rotors are very expensive and almost twice the cost.

I was considering getting this setup
I have no idea what "Ferodo pads" are though :roll: :???:
Has anyone used them?
