    Brake dust EVERYWHERE Empty Brake dust EVERYWHERE

    Post  BossmanJiggetts on Fri Jul 27, 2018 4:18 pm

    So, I've had my 93 Caprice for about 10 years now and its been my daily driver for at least 6 of those years. I seem to go through brake pads almost as fast as i go through fuel and I'm not sure if theres an upgraded pad i could use to prevent the accumulated brake dust that covers my wheels in a thick layer in a few days time. I understand the B-bodys are heavy but it doesn't matter what pads I use, they go quickly. Ceramic, Duralast Gold, you name it and I've went through them. Quickly. Any suggestions on pads and how to prevent the brake dust build up?

    I've had good luck with EBC greenstuff pads for wear life and dust, but I haven't used them on my Impala (I have a C5 brake kit and it's hard to find that line of pads for those brakes)
