Welcome to the world of automotive parts. I started with Champion when it was a $250 million company. 10 years later I was part of a $14.7 Billion called Dana Corp. we were buying companies every month.


Interesting...Dana makes our differentials.

not much just a few part number changes. If you need a spider web graphic comparison to make up your mind on pads, there are a few manufacturers that have them posted.

Z23 is the way to go, but others will chip in with their own preferences

Power Stop Z23 Evolution Sport
CARBON FIBER INFUSED CERAMIC BRAKE PADS
Z23 Carbon-Fiber Ceramic formula offers excellent braking performance.
Dust-free braking performance.

Available from many sources
RockAuto.com
ECS
Brake Warehouse
etc

If I NEVER see snow again in my life, it would be fine with me (I hope I don't loose my sight)

I was looking into this guy.
CENTRIC 10609200 Posi-Quiet Extended Wear w/Shims and hardware
from rockauto.com
I put these on mine. They're awful. The fronts are a semi metallic as they don't make a ceramic in this brand for the fronts. The rears are a full ceramic and the dust reduction is better but in my opinion not that great.
