Surface transforms ceramics

fitted mine a few weeks ago and the front pads rattle in the calipers at slow speed over a rough road which is pretty annoying. im going to pull one of the pads out and compare the dimensions to oem and go from there. its not a problem I expected for that kind of price and I didn't want to change the car to make it in any way worse but this has. anyone else had this experience with them or can offer any solution ??? . apart from that 5 weeks in and im loving the car apart from the fuel bill.

just copper slip the back of the pads so they stick to the pistons rather than rattling about

so the problem is the pad dimensions and they are basically undersize causing them to move up and down when on a rough surface , I measured a gap of .635 mm between the pad and caliper on the surface transforms pads and .330 mm on the stock pads . you can actually grab the pad in the caliper and move it up and down. I need a solution to make the pad .4 mm longer by either welding a bead onto the pad then grinding it back or some kind of shim system to take the slack out. any ideas anywhere ??

they will be the rsc1 pads that came with the kit, they are a much deeper pad that sticks a fair way out of the bottom/inside of the caliper as the front disc has a bigger swept area .

I know somewhere on the net there was some titanium shims for sale, could you not use something like that with the ends squared off at 90degrees rarther than just a flat shim?

Other option would be to reline a set of std pads or have a custom set made if possible.

the shims are great idea, any idea where you saw them ? I couldn't reline a std pad as its a different size and wouldn't sweep the part of the disc nearest the bell, for the price of the setup I think the quality control is terrible, ive emailed st yesterday but because im not the original purchaser I doubt ill get anywhere with them.

I’ll try and have a dig around but I am sure other members will know where there from.

Initially I think they were made to reduce the effects of squelling

cheers, im pretty dissoppointed that surface transforms didn't reply to me so ive engineered my own solution.id be well pissed if I had bought these new and paid someone to fit them. I knew id have no come back with them not being the original purchaser. fortunately I have my own fully equipped workshop so I have a great idea once the ramp is free.

the discs are great - as are the pads.

Surface transforms are a HUGE company and do not answer their emails.

If you ring their liverpool number and ask for sales or support you can get through to them to talk
