Nice work there 👍🏼
How does performance (high speed/low speed) compare to the original set up?
Also, it seems from the pictures that you have new rear control arms. I wonder if you replaced those too!

That looks like the PowerStop kit that I installed from RockAuto on my PAU about 8-yrs ago! I still use/have the same rotors and have replaced the pads 3-times and still no vibration. Good job!

oh yeah I can tell a difference in them for sure right off the bat there is a very noticeable difference less pedal pressure for the same deceleration as before with old brakes and no new control arms just sprayed them when I done the calipers

How many miles are you getting out of the ceramic pads on yours?

It depends on the compound! Are they Carbon Fiber impregnated, or totally cermanic? I only get about 30-K on the PowerStop pads, but installed totally cermanic pads last year and we see how that goes. Looks like they are lasting longer! Same stopping power when warmed up.
