    I've used Genuine pads for a long time now. No issues at all. Im almost due for a new set and will buy them again without doubt.

    Yeah another vote for genuine, find they stop heaps better than Bendix and wear isn't too bad really. .

    The genuine ones on mine were more effective than wishful thinking, but only just. Their level of performance was 'dangerous'.

    I know zero about brakes but wondering if your big DX Leafy Ute Beast towing across our Great Land on your Top Adventures @Cuppa Mate does require better than OEM? I know my old work DX leafy was a pig of a thing to pull up around town with heavy trailers and seem to recall you kindly mentioning something about “Green Pads” or similar are better for hauling Patrols ?

    I’m running the RDA/EBC all round with Yellowstuff pads, I rate the combination highly. Followed the bedding in instructions to the letter.
    In my opinion way better than the genuine and that's with a fair bit of towing involved.
    Cheers

    The point at which i determined they were dangerous was long before we had loaded up for travelling & were not towing. I driving home at moderate speed to whar was our new home near Ballarat. Uncertain ogf the turn off I needed to take I saw it fairly late. In any other car I could have slowed & made the turn without difficulty, but the with my foot jammed hard on the brakes I still overshot it!. Yes I went to EBC Greenstuff pads with RDA dimpled & slotted rotors - a huge improvement. Now on the yellowstuff pads - same but better on long descents as they can handle heat better (not that I had a problem with the green stuff pads, but the higher heat tolerance for me is a peace of mind thing). However there are now other options - the hydraulic booster arrangement someone here recently fitted arrangement sounds really good, although for now I'm happy to stick with what I have.

    The hydro boost has made me fall in love with my Patrol all over again especially teamed up with slotted rotors and ECB pads.
    Slowly getting used to the pedal having almost zero travel. It’s like it starts to brake when it senses your foot just touching it.
    Absolutely love it!

    With the genuine pads, the 4.8 pads are claimed to be the better choice.
