I will question my previous testimony here. When you look at the pictures 3 and 4 with the old pad in or next to the caliper, it appears the pads are staggered (narrow pad opposing a wide pad). I'm not sure why that would be, unless the pads were put in wrong at the factory, or replaced incorrectly, or what.

I just can come up with an engineering explanation why this would be intended.

AntiHero? Where these pictures taken as installed? Anyone else see this on their pads?

Possibly to dissipate heat at different points of the disc?

You definately don't want to do this radially. You will have dished rotors, or worse, cracked ones. The reason to have the smaller pad trailing is the leading pad always bites harder (especially at first), thus using a larger pad will reduce the pistons force in that zone.
Thanks from PaddockStand

It does appear that the factory pads were installed staggered. After 9500 miles the rotors didn't suffer any sort of premature wear and there's no cracking or warping. Being that there's no way to stagger the EBCs unless you took one pad out of one package and paired it up with another pad in the other, I'm guessing the pads were incorrectly installed at the factory.

I didn't give any thought to whether or not the small should be at the top or bottom. (Hmm, maybe that's why the brakes seem to be easier to modulate in the initial 5% pressure range?)
Thanks from PaddockStand

FYI, I just looked at mine and they're staggered as well.

Does anyone else think red loctite is bad for aluminum calipers? I'd be more inclined to use the blue loctite. I've seen red ruin steel nuts in the past....

Thanks for the how-to!!! You are definately the man Anti-hero

Just some expirence - I worn a set OEM pad out on less than 500 KM on Brno racetrack.... down to the bare metal, Damm it....

I never use locktite on caliber bolts - using the correct torque of 43 Nm - you should be fine - for further security - use lock wire as we do on the racetrack.

BTW I swaped to Lucas / TRW Dual carbon pads - works great, and last longer than OEM.
