Did EBC ever make "Red Stuff" pads for our cars?


Recommended Posts

While swapping out my wheels and tires on the flatty, I was going to do a brake job. The brakes have always been a little noisy (not squeal/squeak.....almost an audible grinding when coming to stop) so I was just going to put on new pads. However, on inspecting the pads they look brand new with almost 1/4" of friction surface left....and the backing plate and sides of the friction surface are red???? Only company I know that does that is EBC with the old "Red Stuff" pads out of England, and I never thought they did pads for a SQ. That could explain the brutally fast braking the flatty has always had, and it spent a few years in Europe with the PO. Anyone ever seen EBC Red's for our cars?

Yeah I got EBC pads for mine.... but there not the reds, there organics so I think the greens? When I ordered them they were for a Toyota something. It was whatever was listed in the posting at the time.

I have a 96 tacoma 4 cyl 2wd. I just did brakes and saved an old pad to check it with the factory starion ones. Does anyone have a set of pads lying around to take measurements of? I have a micrometer and can get the measurements of the toyota pads.

 

This way we know 100% if they will work or not. The 96 year was the start of the new generation of tacomas which went until the early 2000's.

Hi old thread, they did, i have them on the car.  But i bought them in 2000.  I still have material on them, but I have driven the car like 20 miles since installed.
