Need some info on where and what to put on a Granada based Pilgrim Sumo to upgrade the front brakes, I have the standard vented discs at the moment and would like even better stopping power at sensible cost, any ideas please;)

HI k40BRA, have a look at this thread

http://www.cobraclub.com/forum/gardner-douglas-technical-questions/24687-ap-brakes.html#post217621

I am in the same situation, don't need more stopping power just brakes that will not fade after a lot of use/brisk driving. Looked at generic AP upgrades and it looks like about 1500 to do the fronts on most cars :shock:

Will be interested to see if you get some more useful advice here?

First stop try some Pagid RS19 or 29 pads before spending a fortune on an AP set up.;)

Thanks Dave, are those part numbers Granada replacements or general type of pad? (I guess "general" type)

Second, where's the best place to get them from?

Hi Noel.
The nos. are the friction material codes, I have them on My CSL.
The cheapest place in the UK (I think) are these people:-

Has anybody tried the Pagid pads in their Sumos?

Any noticeable difference?
