The brakes on my Frontier have been fair at best since I bought it a year ago. What aftermarket products have improved your Fronty's braking? Better pads? Stainless steel brake lines?
I got 30k on my green stuff ebc pads in front, rear still on at 40k. I changed to ebc suv green stuff in front now which are an upgrade over the standard green. I wish they made Red stuff to fit cause Ive always used/use these on other cars and love them. I cross drilled my own rotors, and run braided lines front and rear. I think this is about the best you can get for us. And would really like to upgrade to larger APC kit to stop me at 5500#, and 300+ wheel HP. But I have other things to spend $1700 on....like the new Torin 56" top and bottom tool baoxes I bought for the garage today..Needed to get oganized and the smaller boxes i have are too packed...to bad the new are full now too.Why is everybody so enamored with EBC Green Stuff pads?
When I was researching them years ago for my Integra auto-x and track day car, the dealers that were selling them told me they wouldn't last a month on a street only Integra.
I wouldn't dare put something like that on a 4,000+ lbs. truck that I'm going to daily drive and tow with.
Also, stainless steel brake lines will not affect your braking performance, only the pedal feel.
Can anyone else confirm this? This would be a nice thing to do when I change my rotors and pads.Go with EBC yellow stuff brake pads in the front and EBC green tuff (pathfinder brake pad size) in the rear. ie, the pathy rear pad is about 9% bigger and fits into the fronty brake holder for an increase in brake swept area in the rear.
They are the same pad.Has anybody used EBC redstuff?since everyone's here only used greenstuff.
EBC do make redstuff for frontier.
Also, I'm a bit confused when try to shop for EBC brakepads because it seems that there are 2 types for Frontier & Navara, dont know which one for which.
Anybody knows?I'm looking for Navara with diesel engines
