Porterfield R4S pads run about $160-$180 for all 4 corners.
Like I said, they are not cheap and they do dust a lot,
but you would be hard pressed to find a better street pad.

Contact David at twosrus.com, tell him I sent you.
I know he was going to start carrying them, but
I'm not sure if he is yet.

also, change your brake fluid. Valvoline Dot3/Dot4 fluid is pretty good and cheap. Motul RBF600 is very very good, but more expensive.

The Motul 600 stuff isn't ideal for a street application because it absorbs water really quickly. This is fine if you're bleeding your brake system frequently but if you only do it once a year (or less) like most people than it's a bad idea. If you want a longer lasting high temp brake fluid ATE Blue/Gold is a very good option.

If you don't track your car I would skip the ATE. In a street application you just never heat your brakes up that much, It's not like you're braking from 130 to 45 for the same corner over and over and over again on the street. :)

Just so you know, it's ATE Blue or ATE Gold. They're the same fluid, just a different color to make bleeding easier.

I will buy the gold one cuz i love GOLD!!:lol: and i rather have a good brake fluid than having a normal one.;) When it comes to safety you can never be to safe.:)

if you race, go for the ATE, if you don't, just get the Valvoline. you can get it from just about any parts store. it's $5/quart.
