I AM VERY PLEASE WITH THESE PADS. INSTALLED THEM ON OUR 2005 LEXUS SC430 AND CAN'T BELIEVE HOW MUCH BETTER THEY ARE VS STOCK PADS.

I replaced the front rotors and pads on my Lexus SC430 sports car about a year ago with EBD Sport rotors and Yellow pads, and what a tremendous difference in braking performance this made! Faster, smoother stops. One year later, and they are still performing like new. At that time, I had also replaced the rear pads, but EBC did not make rear rotors for my car then. Since then, they do so I replaced my worn-out OEM rotors last week with the same EBC Sport rotors and new Yellow pads. I'm happy to report that the rear rotors and doing well. I can't really tell my difference in braking performance, but then it's the front rotors & pads that are most important in any street vehicle. I am expecting the pads to last longer, tho, as the dimples & grooves in the EBC rotors should aid in cooling. Replacement time & effort is minimal...about 30 min per wheel. I used the stock car jack, and removed each caliper (by removing its two mounting bolts) so that I could squeese the caliper pistons in easier with a C-clamp, and to paint them (aesthetics only...looks cool through the custom wheels I have). I did have to use a mallet hammer to remove the stock rotors, as they slightly rust onto the hubs in the rainy climate here, but that took only about 1 minute of rotating and banging on the inside surface of the old rotors until they came free.

Unfortunately following installation the right wheel on my 645ci decided to take a different direction than that which i was turning. According to the repair shop the bolts stripped out of the rotor. Now I don't know if I didn't have the bolts torked in all the way as I thought I did or not. But the wheel staid on for 6.5 miles with the noise of the pads getting seated. The question yet to be answered is: did the threads in the rotor fail, or what? Tore up the right fender, trashed the sway bar
