Hi All
Have just got new front rotors for my Troopy and are now trying to source front and back QFM pads. According to the general senses on here they are the way to go. Can't work out where to get them from. We live in Darwin. Happy to order online if that is the way to go?
Thanks Lyndon

Hi lyndon,

You do realise that the better the performance of the pads the shorter the life of your rotors !

In most cases, original pads give the best performance to wear ratio and are sometimes cheaper than "so called" better pads.. Michael

Hi
Have been told rotor wear is good with these pads, not to worried about it though, just want better braking! Can't find where to buy on Google?
Anyone know where I can source them?
Thanks

Gday Lyndon,
I also have bought the DBA slotted rotors - the rears arrived today. I've bought the latest Bendix 4wd pads on the recommendation of people at LCOOL. Got them via Ebay from this seller for $67.95 a pair delivered. Got them 2 days later. DB1365 and DB1200 were the numbers from memory.

Jeez, you blokes must have done a lot of Ks to need new rotors or pads. Or is it a Toyo problem? My Nissan has done almost 160,000 ks, still on original pads !!! Rotors not even marked! Maybe you need a modern car!!

Hi Ianw,
The harder the pads the shorter the life of the rotors. It pays to use genuine parts (or similar grade) for items such as brake pads.

I guess I will have to consider replacing my pads after my round Aus trip next year. They might be down to 30% by then!!

A while ago I had a lawn mowing round in Melbourne. Had a Mitz Sigma towing a 4 cu mtr trailer. Replaced the pads every 3 - 4 weeks !! but never had to do the rotors in 120,000 ks. I figured soft pads at $20 to $25 pair were cheaper and safer than hard pads and new rotors every six months.
