Pretty specific question here. Who is running ceramic pads on their SS Aero rides? I have Akebono's Euro pads on the rear but having a hard time finding some for the front. Akebono doesnt make front pads for the Aero. Just wondernig what the other Aero's are running since the front pads on these are larger than the 2.0t. Thanks!

I have an 04 SS with GS slotted rotors and EBC Redstuff pads all around, excellent combination, 30k miles and lots of pad left. They have great cold grip, but once the get some heat in them they bite really hard. You just have to make sure you break them in according to EBC specs. I'm not sure what size rotors the 06 SS has, but I have a front set for the 345mm front rotors because they were sent to me by accident instead of the ones for my 302mm rotors. Let me know if you want them.

I bought Textar front and rears pads along with front and rear rotors from European Parts Specialists. Randy Steele is the owner and very helpful. I have always preferred the yellow box European Textar pads. They are not easy to get for front and rear but Randy stocks them all for Mercedes and now stocks Saab parts.
