Title: Brakes part numbers...
Post by: Pugzilla on September 26, 2016, 01:21:04 AM
So I have run DBA rotors and Hawk pads for nearly two years now and in the last nine months my brakes have slowly been making more and more noise. It hasn't bothered me for a while now but I thought it was about time I fixed it, I think I made a mistake getting the parts I did as I don't track my car. I didn't notice any increase in stopping performance but I imagine if I did a few laps on track I would. With that said I'm looking to go back to OEM but to get rid of the noise, if I decide to track my car later on I can always put my performance parts back on.

The problem I have is finding the correct parts. I initially tried to order new clips for my pads to see if that would fix my noise. But then I discovered I can't actually get the clips without ordering new pads. I'm also replacing my rear rotors as even if I did track my car an DBA $300 set of rotors is a bit of a waste of money. I could sell my rear rotors to cover the cost to solve my problem, hopefully keeping my front ones in the process.

Yes, those Sport Suspension clips are a difficult find..I got some somewhere though, but they may be available as part of the Mazda "Value Pad" set. Less $$ than the "correct #/OEM" set you linked, but may not be the same compound.
