    Default Powerbrake for Pajero Sport

    Hey guys. Who has had good/bad experiences with Powerbrake dics and pads? The website says front set only. What about the rear? Are they same size?
    How are these products as compared to original Mitsu? Any other recommendation. I don't tow.

    Fitted them to a Polo Sportline, a Wrangle TJ and a Gen3 Pajero, very happy, no issues and well priced compared to oem.

    I have had a set on mine for around 30000km.
    So far so good. Very nice feel on the pedal. Brakes extremely well and haven't noticed any fade. My model, being the 2009 only has discs in the front and drums at the back.
    Only complaint is they squeak a bit although I seem to be the odd one out. A friend fitted them on his LWB Blister Pajero after fitting 35" tyres and they managed with that.
    He also has them on his Subaru WRX. Another friend has them on his Colt bakkie and neither of them have ever complained.
    Compared to the dealers the prices are competitive if not better. There are cheaper options from Midas/Masterparts but personally I don't want to go budget on brakes.

    If Ate is a budget brand then I'm all for budget brands

    Powerbrake stuff does look very good and fairly priced when compared to oem.

    ATE is good for sure, however I could only find ATE shoes for my car and found something called Stone for the front discs

    One thing I've noticed with your typical Midas etc is their parts catalogues aren't very well indexed especially for lesser known/well sold vehicles, find out all the vehicles that share parts, in this instance brake pads/discs etc and then also ask for the same parts but from those models.

    I have a Honda Crv that shares pads and discs with many of Honda's sedans, all the local parts guys swore blind on my Crv only Brembo pads available at close to R1k a pair and likewise expensive discs, but if I ask for Honda Ballade pads and discs different story.

    I am looking at taking advantage of Powerbrake's lockdown special to get a front set of pads and disks for my Pajero Sport.

    For those that have fitted them, what has been your experience?

    Yeah for towing a boat, mine does struggle a bit with regular braking. But in general driving too I find the brakes could be a bit better, so hoping that this will improve things.

    How I see it (and why I already bought mine) is that at some point you will definitely need new brake discs and pads. So might as well just buy and store them.

    Reading through earlier comments and experience from friends who have fitted them, I don't think you will get anything better, certainly not at this price. Do it!

    We recently helped as customer with brake upgrades for his vehicle (Hilux though). The special is for Mintex Pads and the RS set of discs. On the Hilux these give about a 20% improvement over stock. However if you regularly tow heavy or load the vehicle heavily the PB05 pads are recommended. These are about a 30% upgrade over stock and the pads give decent mileage. If you are still not happy we are getting into Big Brake kit territory with upgraded calipers etc.

    PowerBrake is one of the best mods Iíve done, was a huge braking improvement over stock. Almost time for another round.

    Agreed, the website price is incorrect. I ordered mine on the site, then they sent me an invoice, I requested that it be amended, they sent me back the correct invoice. Paid via EFT, to days later it was delivered.

    Hi,
    I got them for the front, both the disks and the pads. I installed them myself and that was quite easy ( Just had to wire brush to make sure the disks seat well)
    I didn't keep any dates, but I felt like the pads didn't last all that long ??
    I still have the disks but had to put normal pads back on ( in Bots)

    They worked really well.
    Just save the date and the Km's to keep a record to monitor the wear..
