Ok, I just finished with the rear brakes. Rotors and new Wagner Perfect stop ceramic pads.

The only thing new was a plug that has to be removed from the old rear rotor in the e-brake area and inserted into the new rotor.

A small bungie cord helps it you short a 3rd hand like I am. The caliper keeps dropping down into the rotor messing with my progress. Murphy lends a hand as well if something pops of or is stuck like the stainless steel plate on the inner pad which goes against the piston.

But other than that I found my pads I did a while ago still with a lot of material. At least half for sure. I believe the lack of caliper grease on the stainless steel guides that the inner pad moves in/out on was a bit tighter than it should be and/or the rotor rippled wear on the surface was causing noise and some braking issues. Anyway its all new now and I don't expect any trouble.

The test drive went fine and even with some short hard braking they'll bead in fine. New brakes all around now.
