I'm thinking about overhauling the brakes on my 88 GL soon, any recommendations of brands for pads/shoes? I'm just running stock rotors/calipers and rear drums for now, but I'd like to make my purchase worthwhile. The wagon is mostly a daily driver.




(also, links to a thorough rear disc conversion writeup would be much appreciated!)

More details on your setup? Their brakes look pretty nice, but obviously you've done some custom work to put them on an EA82. What model of calipers/rotors are you using?

If you do the rear drums, have them turned, and i have a set of springs and shoes for ea82 drums raybestos in the box new. If you need them, you can get them from me for less than buying; i have no use for them.
