G'day fellas,
Just wondering which pads are the best for the front on my 80 series. I am looking at replacing the pads preferably with non metallic ones. Toyota quoted me $100 for theirs so before I grab a pair, are there any different ones I should be looking for????
Thanks, Mark.

Agree go the Bendix. The biggest killer of any pad is the grit from mud/sand/dirty water that gets into em.

If you talk nicely you should get the genuine ones down a bit in price. if not contact me.

Be carefull with pads. the genuine ones are matched to the rotor. Not much p[oint in buying a set of "harder"pads anbd then have to prematureley replace rotors.

I just put a set of Bendex 4wd pads on the surf, the difference in braking is quite noticable. Mind you the other pads were pretty worn... I had genuines on there prevously.

I paid $52 for my Bendex pads.

Go the bendix 4wd pads mate, you wont find a better choice for the price and they last a good while too. they wont eat your rotors either

Hi If your 80 series is a 9/92 or later, buy a set of front pads for a 100 series rigid diff (or to be techo...a 105 series) These pads fit straight in and have more pad contact with the disc...in essence they are oblong (instead of tapered down the bottom) and once fitted, (i bought ferado kevlar pads for 60 bux) will give you better braking on the front wheels. Absolute godsend if you have bigger tyres or heavy accessories....
