vs calais, ve ssv
bendix are normally pretty good, part number db1331gct and db1332gct, you can get your rotors machined if they need it and are still above min thickness or get new ones. you dont machine new rotors

I Use ferodo, $40 for a front pair, They are dusty, Not Noisy, quite impressed with the stopping power by them, Alot better then the OEMs i Had on it. Have not let me down yet.
And No dont machine new Discs, Dont ever machine discs as they get thinner then warp easier, The Cost of Discs its just not worth it, Just get a new Set of Discs.

I was going to suggest that he did not use Ferodo. I bought some for the rear a few weeks ago and I can't believe the amount of dust they produce. I have to clean the wheels every day. I will be replacing them with Bendix tomorrow.

I have db1334 instead of db1331 on the VT Commodore.

The db1334 fit the standard caliper and compared to the db1331 are a much larger pad material area.

I'm the same , have Ferodo on the rear of my VE and they create more dust that the Bendix i have on the front.

.. depends on which Ferodo

the Ferodo Motorsport are a much better pad, don't chew rotors (like bendix do)
and show very little dust thru use
