How are Jurid Front Brake Pads vs O.E. Pads for a Street-Driven-Only NA?

I ask only because the price is $122 for O.E.'s versus $54 for Jurids from our host.

I've done many, many brake jobs on domestics, can I assume a pad swap on my NA is as easy?

Any special tools?

I already know I do NOT need rotors. If not Jurids, other recommendations? REMEMBER, street driven only. Thanks in advance.

I ran PBR metal masters on the street, and had no issues at all, that said, I've heard good things about Jurid pads, and have been told they're better for both dust and noise than my MM's. Changing the pads on a 944 is easy as pie, pull the wire clip, then the 2 pins out (and the spring clip), remove pads. Install new pads, check other side because you forgot how the clip sits, then put it back together.

Zero10 - Sounds great, but don't you have to press the piston back into its bore? What am I missing?

I'm probably going to buy the Jurids from Pelicanm but by the way, I HATE squeeling brake pads, yes, even while they warm up. Do the Jurids squeel? Who sells the MM's and do they squeel?

OH! I forgot the bigger question:

Must I replace ther pad sensors once they light up? Mine did, but went off after a short while. Are these a wear item or what? Stgraight forward to figure out? I'll order them here if I need them.

Once your wear sensors are activated, you need to replace whichever ones have been worn away. Many people replace them all, since they're difficult to pry out of the old pads without damaging them.

If you're one of those people who is always working on their car, checking things, bleeding brakes, etc.... you can probably leave them out. Chances are, you're going to know when the pads are worn out. Those wear sensors are really for people who don't pay any attention to anything, until it stops working, or a warning light comes on.

Sorry, my bad.
What I do, is with the pads still in, use a screwdriver to pry the caliper open. This way you're not prying on the rotor, so you won't mark it. Mine were pretty new calipers, so they retracted very easily.

I always install the wear sensors, just incase somehow I forget to check things.

Coldbass - Great, thanks.

I JUST ordered them along with Pad Sensors, an Interior Light (finally) and a soft socket! Every time I look at the Pelican catalog I find something else I've "just got to have".

$55 brake pads just cost me $127 since I added a bunch of (good) crap!

How come when I ask a question similar to this I get negative answers from SoCal?

Its just not fair to me be. Let us know how the Jurids run cause I need less dusty pads in a bad way...

You need "less duty pads"? Man, you oughta try running fully polished wheels. Mine are hazy after the first drive to the corner gas station. I can only hope the Jurids are slightly better.

You mean SoCal Pelicanites rag on you, or are you talking about SOCALDRIVER - the member?

Us SoCal Porsche drivers are mostly just too kewl to driving our Porsches around hobnobbing with the Hollywood types to answer BBS posts!
