I'm of the opinion that softer compounds will usually be more efficient at braking (ie have better braking capacity) but do to so would produce more dust as a consequence.

Longer wearing pads would have a harder compound, thus less dust but less efficient at braking.

I replaced my front discs, as they were warped, with DBA2208S T2 rotors, DBA do a selection of 8 different disc so depending on your budget and use then there is a disc for you.

I also fitted Bendix 4wd pads front and rear at the same time, no bedding in required and nice pedal feel, good braking and no fade but at 40,000kms all 4 pads were worn to the limit, NOT HAPPY JAN, as I had got 80,000kms of the original pads. Replaced again with Bendix 4wd but are having discussions with Bendix on why the short life. I had used Bendix 4wd on previous manual transmission 4wds and got a 120,000+kms out of a set of pads, the Challenger being an auto trans I was happy with 80,0000kms out of the factory pads and was hoping for at least the same life but better performance from the Bendix 4wd. Work in progress on this one at the moment.

Thats not good OJ. I got just shy of 100,000 on my OEM pads and replaced with Bendix 4wd about a year ago. Will be interesting to see how they fair on my vehicle. Iíll be keeping a close eye. Thanks

Totally agree with you Craka, your opinion is actually a fact. What I am looking for is low dust pads on the soft side that will be kind to the discs (rotors) and perform well. If all else fails I may buy genuine as I don't this issue with my PB Challenger.
