    Hey can someone please tell me what brake pad part number the facelift Legnums have? Or if they're the same as say the Magna or something?

    Cool, 3rd gen magna ones are exactly the same as diamante 2nd gen diamante ones.

    So you can use magna pads :D

    I used to use the magna ones (same as a pajero) in 4wd type. Coupled with RDA slotted rotors, the brakes were awesome.

    So, if the break pads off the magna fit, does that mean that the RDA disks off a magna will fit too?

    Yeah well they use the same PCD, so I can't see why not. They're the same size too.

    How much were the RDA's and also how much did you get the greenstuff pads for?

    Was it front and rear?

    Did it bolt straight on or did you have to dick around...?

    Only did the fronts (check my pics they are on there) I'll check my receipt for the prices tonite ... The disks were around $240 each. Thats for the slotted rotors ...pretty sure the lot was around $700 installed.
    I'll get the rears done eventually, but not really needed at the moment. most the braking is on the front ... Oh and they bolted straight on.
    RPW did the lot ...

    At around $2000 for S/H ones over here that is a very good point.

    EBC greenstuff seams to be the way to go, Seen them used, and work well on a lot of cars

    Some consider the TL/TW (ugly faced magna's) to be a 4th gen, but they're the same mechanically AFAIK. I never really researched them as I thought they were ferkin ugly.

    They're the most commonly seen model on the streets for sure.


    $240 a disc?? I got mine for around $110 each :confused: I know I had a 2nd gen but 2nd/3rd gen magnas used the same front discs...

    are all brake pads for legnums / galants the same? As in between wagon/sedan or series 1/series 2?

    I have a set of EBC RedStuff (DP3954C) pads and also a set of Ferodo Excel 1223XL - these were bought with the idea of putting them on my evo 2 twin pots.

    Will these fit my Series 2 Legnum?

    Also have a set of Bendix Advance DB1278AD. These were bought for my gsr's single piston rear calipers. Are GSR rear calipers the same as Legnum rears?

    There is no difference between sedan or wagon and they all use the same pads from 96 to 02, but I don't know about the evo 2 or gsr pads.

    Slotted rotors, my mate's dad owns a brake and clutch workshop...so maybe I got them at cost. I'm not sure.

    I just wanted to know what the difference is between the two rear brake pads listed in page 1? Will either fit a face lift legnum? Is anyone using bendix advance pads in their car? I know people have mentioned the EBC red and green pads but I am just after basic pads. I have used the Bendix advance pads on other cars and like the low dusting they give. Can someone confirm that the part numbers listed on the first page are correct.
    Thanks

    I had already read that thread but it only has the EBC prices. I want to see if the Bendix pad part numbers are correct.
