Subaru WRX Manufactured Before May 2002, Brake Pads by Centric®. These brake pads are manufactured using positive mold technology to provide even wear characteristics throughout the lifetime of the brake pad. The components are scorched to remove impurities in the friction material and improve initial pad/rotor bed-in.
- Ceramic friction formulas provide excellent stopping power hot or cold
- Longer pad life than other friction materials
- Low dust formulations keep wheels cleaner
- 100% shimmed to eliminate noise and vibration
- 100% positive molded for even wear characteristics
- Scorched for improved bed-in
- OE style chamfers and gas slots to improve heat dissipation, eliminate noise and vibration
- Precision cut or shaved backing plates for a proper fit in the caliper body
- 100% non asbestos formulas
- Come installation ready with OE style wear sensors attached
- Sold as a set for two wheels
These brake pads combine improved braking performance and reduced noise under braking to provide superior stopping power and reliability for passenger cars and light duty trucks without brake squealing, groaning, and vibration. Scorched for easy bed-in, these brake pads bring consistent and reliable braking power right out of the box providing a number of other benefits. Firstly, the pads are manufactured using OE positive mold technology that brings the benefit of consistent friction material density throughout the pad ensuring its long wear life. In addition, the pads are 100% shimmed to provide superior noise abatement. OE designed pads ensure a proper fit in the caliper, that is crucially important to prolong rotor and pad wear life and for consistent braking power throughout the lifetime of the brake pad. With shims installed to prevent noise associated with pad vibration, these brake pads are installation ready. They also feature OE style gas slots and chamfers to optimize braking performance in repeat stop situations. All Centric Premium Brake Pad formulas are 100% asbestos free and have OE style wear sensors installed.
These brake pads by Centric comply to current brake friction material state legislation such as CASB346 California Brake Friction Legislation, WA6557 Washington Brake Friction Legislation, and others. To meet all requirements, Centric Premium Ceramic brake pads are 100% asbestos- free. As a member of the Brake Manufacturers Council, Centric has been involved in the development of the LeafMark and edge code legislation. This code can be found printed on every brake pad manufactured after January 1, 2014 and indicates the level of compliance with state friction material content legislation.
