Rear brake pads are fun
Anyone do rear pads themselves? The main issue seems to be compressing the piston.
First side took me 3 hours to do lol. 2nd side took 6 minutes haha. I had a breakthrough on technique.
I ended up using posiquiet ceramics. Ive got centric rotors all around and semi metallic posi quiets in the front. FYI posiquiet is a line from centric.
I run Wilwood BP-1 in the front and Posiquiets on the rear. Been through a dozen autocrosses and a track day just fine! Not saying it's a great idea, but I haven't noticed a problem as long as the front pads are grabbier. You don't want the rear locking up.

The proper tool, makes the job go super easy. I got a brake tool from ... I can't remember where and it makes rotating the calipers a breeze. I think I got it from Harbor Freight or Amazon. Using that makes the process go so much easier than using the $10 cube that never really matches up.
