brake pads for Patrols

Post by ricster » 04 May 2015 08:49

Just want to start a thread that can make a search a little easier when it comes to brake pads for the Patrol. Please add to this if you have alternate part numbers or part numbers for the 4.8's. Please lets keep this as an INFO page and not for debating which it better or worse.

I know that the 4.8 pads are different to the 4.5 & 4.2 petrol as well as the 3.0 & 4.2 diesel.

So for all Patrols other than 4.8's see below.

For the rear, the cheapest and easiest to fit is a Mazda Etude front brake pad ( I have used both Ferodo Platinum and the ATE brands )
Ferodo FDB1455-PLA
There is a little filing needed on the ears to get it to slide in the slots of the caliper, but nothing that anybody cannot do with ease.

Front pads I again have used Ferodo and ATE.
Ferodo FDB1577)
