These front pads have 14k miles. The misalignment you
see is becuase the calipers are shimmed out at the bottom to clear an
A-arm. The "inner" pads are not easily found - nearest stock
part is D-90, but this only contacts 1-1/2" of the 2-1/8"
rotor surface. The outer is 1980 Granada, stock number D-91.
Newer rebuilt calipers have aluminum pistons. The problem
with our original calipers is the nylon piston. It's engineered to provide
heat insulation between the pad and the fluid, but these pistons swell
and stick. Results? For me it was glazed (read non-resurfaceable) rotor
and pads. Sounds like "CHEAP-CHEAP-CHEAP-CHEAP." You get the
idea. When you replace the pads, scribe the edge which misses the rotor
and champfer on a grinding wheel. Original Aurora pads were riveted
semi-metallic, better than glued.
You can buy the stock pads shown, or get custom fitted
pads from Porterfield, (949) 548-4470. They specialize in racing pads
- kevlar compound - which runs cool, is expensive and short lived. Semi-metallic
is good for the street.
