Bendix Brakes

Brakes for Safety

Bendix was founded by Vincent Bendix in 1923. A year later, Mr. Bendix introduced the U.S. auto industry to the first four-wheel brake system. That was the first invention for the company that made a world of difference to safety behind the wheel. Today Bendix is a part of the Honeywell Friction Material's Family of premium brands, and every day approximately hundreds of engineers utilize sophisticated technologies to make brake systems safer.

Since its foundation, Bendix has been an innovation leader in the brake industry constantly developing new technologies. For instance, the company pioneered the power brake that later became master VAC technology on all future cars back in 1951 and introduced the first four wheel disc brakes eleven years later. Nowadays Bendix keeps unleashing brake parts that are welcomed by the global vehicle manufacturers and mechanics alike.

Bendix® D1159 - CQ™ Ceramic Front Brake
2006 Chevy Monte Carlo
| Posted by | (Henderson, NV)

I have been driving for 46 years and started using Bendix brake pads back in the 70;s before the internet and information access we have today. They always performed exceptionally well in 5 cars I put them on. My current car I purchased used and knew it had warped rotors and had went online and found Bendix rotors and ceramic brake pads and purchased since the prior set of rotors and brake pads were wrapped. I made sure the mechanic who I know and will let me back in the bay area to view condition of brakes used a high performance caliper grease to re-lube these calipers. After installation I had smooth breaking again with the Bendix parts installed. I am in the 30 day mode of driving with these and the feel, grip and stopping distance is excellent. Since I am now into my 60's I can say Bendix has performed through my life time with perfect results and no issues. This is something that not many companies can say about their products over 40 year period. Daniel J.

Five Stars Pads

I used these on my Charger. These are absolutely the same as the factory ones, including the amount of dust they create. If you have Brembo calipers this simplifies the work. Five Stars for Bendix.

It was very simple to change pads on my Brembo calipers. If you can take a wheel off, you can change these pads. They are the best on market.

I used these products in my auto repair shop without any problems or return work. These are absolutely the same as OE including the amount of brake dust they make.
