Found some references to EBC pads on the forum but not exactly the answers I was looking for.
Do any of you use the yellowstuff compound on your vehicles and how well does it work? I want to use it on the daily driver with generally light braking duty most of the time with occasional utility trailer up to 3500# and two to three times a year with a 9000# camper in tow.
My experience with heavy duty brake pads is 20 plus years ago and if they were not used agressivly on a regular bassis they would tend to glaze (I think) and would not be effective untill after 4 or 5 hard stops. Way to late to work well when needed! I am looking for a good pad that is consistant and predictable.

Have EBC green on my Silverado and my wifes Trailblazer and they work well. Both trucks have oversize wheels and tires.

EBCs are good brakes but are normally special order from any parts store. I've used them and recommend them to anyone.

Thanks for the replies and for sure I intend to try them out. Just want to know if there is a down side in using a heavy duty pad in an often light duty aplication. The yellow pads are a bit more expensive but as many have said here, being able to stop is real important. also being expensive does not always mean it is a good choice.

I bought the EBC Greenstuff pads and the EBC slotted Ultimax Blackdash rotors on my 94 Chevy. AND they work FANTSTIC!!! Best money I have ever spent on brakes, although a bit pricy, i absolutely recommend them to anyone that can afford them.
