    Time for new breaks on the BBB, Looking at Russel rotors and Lyndel or EBC pads. Any input.

    Lyndall estimates that the Gold pads are good for an average pad life of 18 - 20 K miles, while the Z pads average from 7,000 to 10,000 miles. They have a very good reputation and you can call and talk to Paul JR or SR about your choice. They are great to talk to and very knowledgeable about brakes. If you also mention some of the forums, you will get a 10% discount on their pads.

    Russell makes some good parts also and I would go with floating rotors as long as you are going new. The advantages of floaters outweigh the non floaters.

    Went with the Russell 420 Full Floating rotors with Lyndall Gold pads and Valvoline DOT4. Russell Black SS Braided lines on the way.
    Took almost all day yesterday to get them broke-in, but WOW! it was sure worth it, can you say STOPPIES!
    Total cost was $450 and well worth twice that!!
