All brake pads require a burnishing or bedding-in procedure in order to achieve optimal performance and durability. During the bedding-in process the pad conforms to the rotor surface and generates an import transfer film. Prior to installation, make sure the brake system is free and clear of debris, brake fluid is replaced and all brake components are properly installed and in good working order.

I live in Canada which makes getting parts more difficult due to shipping and availability. I decided to try late model restoration out as they are Canada shipping friendly. The order went smoothly and the parts arrived, and were exactly as i expected. Then a problem arose with one item. Now being in Canada this usually makes this a very painful experience to deal with due to the cost of shipping products back and forth across the border. Most of the time it is just easier and cheaper to just order a new one and cut the loses. Not in this case. I sent out an email with the issue and by the time I went outside to take a picture i already had a response. A new product was shipped out immediately. I could not believe how good the customer service was. This will be where i will get what i need for now on. Anyone can sell a product but it is nice to have a company stand behind what they sell. Thanks again.
