which brake pads

Postby 42south » Wed May 19, 2021 4:44 pm

Hi Guys
Just wondering which brake pads to use on my 1991 GQ shorty.
Reading on the net it appears that a softer pad is a better bet than some of the hard ones, which apparently can wear out your disc quickly.
Some also swear that the original Nissan pads are the best.
Has anyone got recommendations or comments on the issue.

Hi Guys
Well in the absence of any ideas, I went with the Bendix SUV 4wd pads. Not fitted yet, has anyone got them, anything to watch out for.

Sorry for not replying earlier, that is what I would have recommended and what I used on my vehicle, they worked for me in all situations on road and off road, remember your not driving a racing car.
