View Full Version : Rear brakes

05-15-2015, 10:54 PM
Hey all. I'm having a dilemma with my rear brakes. When i bought the car it already had a set of slotted n drilled rotors on the car. Well, I needed to replace the pads on them so i ordered a set of powerstop Z23374 for a stock ep3. After i installed them and broke them in, there was a constant squealing from the pads. Turns out the actual pad is smaller in size than the ones taken off before, and the top spring retaining clip rides on the rotor. I am wondering if anyone knows what would be the proper larger pad to fit this rotor. The width of the old pad is 40mm across the center, and 17mm on the ends that ride in the caliper. If anyone could help me out that would be appreciated.

Actually, Rockauto just bucked up and refunded me my money on the first set of pads. Shocking.
