No. I put on cross drilled rotors and aftermarket pads and havent noticed the difference from the OEM ones I had. Car made it to 60k for the rear and 71k for the front on the original brakes. I have 3k on the new ones now.caseypayne69 said:
For the most part no you cant tell. I have Brembo rotors on the Cobra and Hawk pads and you cant tell from looking at them. There are some race pads you can tell by looking at the compound of the pad itself, but not normal pads for the most part.caseypayne69 said:k, I called Ford racing and they simply said to get GOOD quality break pads and I should be safe. I paid 49 bucks for the front oem and 39 for the rear oem from 50resto. Can you tell from looking at brake pads if one is a better quality then another?

Most are zinc plated and will stay clean, however5, the actual braking surface has no coating and will become rusty after sitting for days, especially after a good rain.Jperran said:Do these have some kind of coating on them to keep from getting disgusting like the stock ones?
