Brake pads

My brake pads SUCK! They don't stop very well, and the knock around in the calipers when I come to a stop. They are "Metal Master" pads, and I want to get rid of them!

I see now that Pelican offers bar far the largest selection of 951 brake pads, which should I get for the best fit? OEM? Jurid? Mintex? Pagid? I just need these problems to go away!

Hey Scott...

I am using Jurid in my NA with Turbo brakes.......they were squeeling and slapping around at every stop as well.

I pulled them out and slapped the anti-squeal goop and it took the problem away...... (just a very mild squeel)

The Jurid are ok. They definitely create some dust. I ordered some Pagid brakes for the Turbo that I am going to install....

If they are slapping around you could probably try the anti-squeal lubricant first....

Pagid.

The pads they use for the 951 are the same as the 930 pads - they work great.

About $65 per set

I hesitate to actually post this, but:
I have used NAPA "gold" brake pads recently and just think that they're grand. After the break-in, they've been very good.
But then, being that I'm in an NA I rarely exceed 5 mph.

I used KFP Magnum Gold's on my 944S2. Great pad, withstands track use, they don't eat into the rotors, and they make my car stop on a dime!

Downside: lots of dust, and lots of squeeking noise!

$65 Pagid pads for 951?

At pelican, the only pagid pads listed for the 951 are $168 per set! (unless you have the club-sport option, whatever that is).

I've had Pagids recommended again and again, but I didn't have $330 for a set of pads (Front and Rear) now, so I ordered the mintex pads. I'll let yall know how they are after I put them in.

The "squeel" I can usually solve with just about any pad, usually it's just a lubrication or surface problem. I guess at this point I am confused as to why the "Metal Masters" don't seem to fit correctly. I am really hoping that I can find a pad that gets rid of the damn brake pad knocking around in the caliper problem that I seem to have.

So I guess that "best fit" if tha's possible would be the way I would want to go.
