Greenstuff front pads for the Chevrolet Volt - DP22067

EBC Brakes Greenstuff is a high friction Kevlar based pad compound designed to improve stopping power on lighter cars such as hot hatches and sport saloons in spirited highway driving. The Greenstuff range delivers improved brake response from hot or cold and emits less dust than equivalent semi-metallic pads.

In tests, Greenstuff has been proven to stop a vehicle 20 feet shorter than using stock pads. Greenstuff pads are fully shimmed, chamfered and slotted for silent braking and also feature the EBC Brake‐In surface coating to accelerate pad bed‐in after installation.

THESE PADS ARE NOT FOR TRACK USE.
For heavier and faster cars in street or motorway driving, the best choice is EBC Brakes Redstuff or for fastest street use or track driving of any kind, try EBC Brakes Yellowstuff, Bluestuff or Orangestuff which are designed for this purpose.
All EBC compounds are performance enhanced with CERAMIC GRANULES making them a true premium upgrade pad range for all vehicles.

I've had a look at your products, got a couple of questions.

1. Do you supply hardware kits ie metal shims that fit between the caliper / carrier and the brake pads?

2. Do you supply tubes or tins of lubricant for the brake pad contact points?

I cannot say yes or no as certain pads, if they require them, will come with shims, these do not come with all pads, brake lubricant is not specifically supplied.

I hope the hardware on your pads is better than the OEM pads on mine. I had to change my front OEM pads about a year ago (2015 vehicle, roughly 30,000 miles) and found the backing shim on one of the pads had become completely detached. The yellow circle in the pic shows the remains of one of the loccation pegs.

Right EBC got a question for you. What's the best way to bed in new disc brake pads?

I've always just bedded them in by using the brakes gently for the first 500 / 600 miles or so and I've never had any trouble such as some people seem to experience with pulsating, juddering, grabbing etc. I expect you will manufacture pads in all kinds of materials - asbestos-free organic, sintered and even ceramic materials but I'm just talking about standard road-going pads and discs, none of your track stuff.

I have never had issues either, this link will point you to our site showing you our 'bedding in' recommendations. Any more questions let me know.
