Just make sure you do the brake in, and you can sell your OEMs to the track guys.

My front set of Z26 pads is scheduled to arrive today! The rears are already sitting on my garage shelf. I know guys were having trouble finding them a few months back, but supply seems to be plentiful now. The best deal I found was from RockAuto with their 5% discount code (if anyone cares). I'm hoping to have them installed along with the revised Z51 rotors within the next few weeks.

Thanks to the members who participated in this thread, and special thanks to Strake and L1FRDOG for their good info via PM.

I ordered a set from AMAZON and they should arrive tomorrow, Saturday. From EVERYTHING I've read, and from whatever research I've done and from the numerous POSITIVE PRODUCT REVIEWS I've read, there is absolutely no reason to spend three times the amount for the "other" brake pads. Part of me didn't want to change out perfectly good pads after only 3k miles, but I can't deal with the brake dust anymore. This, I consider necessary.

Hardest part of the entire job for ME, was lifting the monster big HEAVY back wheel/tires back onto the car.... that's what I get for being older than used to be, and having a bad back

My reasons for my choice of brands, and wanting to swap out new brake pads, is EXACTLY the same as your reasons !
