My front pads on the '95 LT are almost gone. I'm afraid to even ask what my dealer would soak me for new ones.
Does anyone have recommendations for a source for good aftermarket pads?
How about braided steel lines? Mine originals are getting old enough not to trust.
Thanks.

Don

I get my EBC pads off Ebay. As for ss brake lines I have both Spiegler and Gahfer and the Spiegler are definitely better quality.

Perceived wisdom this side of the pond is that Ferodo are best. However, I have been happy with EBC sintered pads. Which don't seem to wear the rotors as much as I expected.
