My 05 Ex needs a full rear brake overhaul and I found these from the same source as the front kit in this thread. Just nervous about ordering it and it not fitting. My dust shields are already rubbing due to corrosion.ianmel22, That is a great price, and glad to hear they are preforming well. Did you notice if Callahan has the same set up for the rears? And glad to hear that they fit, even if Amazon said they wouldn't. Maybe it was because the dust shields needed to be modified.
Funny you mention it, Rockauto just delivered my Power Stop rear brake kit, including calipers, rotors, pads and brake lines. I was afraid to try to source any upgrade for the rear. Hope to be installing them one night later this week.Just pulled the trigger on a complete set of Power Stop brakes. After reading and comparing between Callahan , OEM, and others , I finally chose these. I have been fighting a rear right caliper issue for awhile. On my second one, so I thought I would try these. They seem to have good reviews. And living in an area where I have to go up and down a mountain numerous times a day, Im hell on tires and brakes.My accent is 1000 ft in about two miles.
AND, after thinking , "maybe it's time to look at new AWD vehicles , I rethought the " new car or newer car" thing. Limited income, I don't want to spend $30,000 plus.
So, put the money into the E, which I like anyway, just wish it had a 6 cylinder.
I will let you all know how well the Power stops work in time.
I also did them pretty much at the same time as well, as they were all pretty sad. I also like the looks, and was joking with some of my friends at the gym today, saying "hey, did you guys notice the BBK on my Element?" Lol!I agree, The Power Stop brakes seem to have more of a solid feel to them. Now taking into consideration that the old brakes were not great, maybe they just feel new. Even so, my old fronts were in good shape, the backs had about 23% left on them. I always seemed to be changing them at different times, so I figured that I would do a complete system up grade and have a new reference point to start. Ill keep the forum updated ask time, and wear, goes on. I do like the looks of the Power Stops on the car also.
