Once breaks were installed a bit of squeaking was noticed but as do all new breaks have some similar effects. The difference is noticeable when braking on how good they are. I installed these pads with new rotors by a different brand on my 2002 Mitsubishi Montero sport.I have heard good things from ebc and I hope to have these brakes for a very long time.
I've been using Z26 pads for about 3 years on my Genesis Coupes. What I really like about the pads is the ease of bedding. The best thing I can say about them is how well they work both in daily driving and when I get up in the mountains for some days-on-end spirited driving! I will continue to buy Power Stop Z26 pads.
