i have bendix ultimates on mine, great pads but they do start to squeal under constant heavy breaking and dump $hit loads of brake dust onto the rims. part from them the pads i had on the car previously which i think were the holden pads, were great round town for pulling up but sucked at highway speeds.

I have Bendix Advance on the front, hardly any dust and no squeal. I forget what I have on the back, but lots of dust and lots of squeal if I don't hose all that dust out of the calipers regularly. So I think the dust and squeal are related.

i use bendix advance all round and they dont sqeak.
the Bendix Ultimates are a harsher brake compound and do tend to chew your discs quicker than the Advance mainly because they are designed for high performance

I also have Bendix Advance all round. Minimal dust , No squeeling either.

The Bendix Ultimates are a better pad and a harder compound because they are a high preformance pad.

It would be best to have slotted rotors (or better )when using this type of pad to achieve maximum braking preformance.

No dust. No squealing. Does just fine for my general day to day braking.

I have no complaints whatsoever.

Pads......

I always thought that ceramic pads needed upgraded rotors ? Might be wrong. Original rotors arn't much good anyway.

Anyway, I've used a brand of pad called "QFM" (Queensland Friction Material). Not cheap but no problems at all in over a decade of use on various cars, including a VL and VT II.

Personally, I'd pay a bit more and upgrade those rotors. Some good ones on eBay.

Good luck.

There is another choice now in Bendix have brought out a pad called Bendix CT. These pads have a titanium bedding in strip fitted as standard to address the issues of pad bedding in and noise. Dust is also a non issue now with these. Try them next time and I'm sure you will be impressed. I fit them all the time when servicing a customers car.
