pads

  1. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Time to change out the pads/rotors and shoes. The R1concepts ceramic pads I have on are O.K. I tend to go ceramic so I dont have clean the wheels all the time. Ive been looking around and see alot of talk about Hawk brake pads being good. How they stop you better etc.. They cost alot more...

    Brake pads are running down at 30k already on my wifes 2016. I made the mistake of replacing mine on the 2011 with Duralast Pads from AutoZone. They squeel like crazy its highly annoying. Looked up dealership pads and they are 92.00 for the front which seems a bit excessive. Saw another...

    The rear brake pads not seem to be working. The front ones seem to do all the work. I understand front pads will be on a higher load. I drove for 30 minutes in traffic and checked how hot the rotors are.. front rotors are close to hot but rear rotors not even warm. We had replaced front rotors...

    Does anyone know where to get kick pads for interior lower door? I can only find for 1st gen on aliexpress / amazon / ebay.

    Drilled and slotted with ceramic pads. The rotors are silver-zinc coated to prevent rust.

    My brake pads near the end and i need new ones... Its the first time i change pads... The ones i have lasted almost 6 years, despite the low milage (50.000 km)... Am heared about EBC Green Stuff and something called "Fremax"... but either one are rather expensive (+/- 130 euros), almost the...

    Any Kia Soul Pros around who can answer some fit questions for me?? I need to replace all my brake pads and rotors on my 2011 Kia Soul+ 2.0 I'm considering the R1 Concepts CEOE 10751 Eline Series Kit(Pads+Rotors-Rear&Front) mainly because i hope they all fit perfect - but there are no reviews...
  9. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I installed new front pads and rotors on my wife's 2012 soul. I used the top of the line pads and rotors from Autozone. When I finished and started to back out of the driveway all I hear is grinding. When my wife moved the car in the driveway while I was outside I can't hear anything. Is...
  10. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    In changing my rear brake pads (actually a friend and I did the job together) we discovered that one of the 'polished' steel pins (two such pins to each pad housing) into which nuts are threaded has two flat sides while the other pin is round. Why is this? Is it critical to have the flat sided...

    I went to my local Kia Dealer Service Center (Santa Ana, CA) and they said I had 50% brake life in the front and 60% brake life in the rear. My car has 18,000 miles on it. I do get a squeal when I brake about 60% of the time I'm braking. Now, I don't know much about replacing brakes and all that...
  12. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I bought a 2014 Soul from the Kia dealer as used with 3500 miles on it in Aug 2014. I recently made a cross country trip from Orlando, FL to Bakersfield, CA. Everything went fine. However, 2 days later I started hearing a weird grinding noise whenever I used the brakes. The local dealer told me...

    So since I am new here and have gotten great ideas from you all I thought I'd share my small modification I came up with. Instead of buying the sort of slick rear bumper applique for my dog to bust ass on, I did some brainstorming and came up with using surf board traction padding. It's...

    Im trying to find a nice upgrade in terms of brake pads and im trying to confirm if the 2011 and 2012 2.0 Souls share the same front pads :) Thanks for the help guys.

    First thing I did when we got our new Kia Soul! home was to contact Akebono to see if they had some pads. Coming from a Mini Cooper S the wheels would turn black driving from the car-wash home with the oem pads. The Akebono pads were an awesome upgrade, stopping was as good or better, no noise...
  16. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Hi. I want to know at what millage should the brake pads be changed. My soul has 20K miles but the pads appear to be usable. I don't know if to wait for the sound that is supposed to produce the pads when they should be changed or change them right now. Thanks.

    Bought some $hitty brake pads from reybestos and i’m tired of cleaning off my rims every week. Looks like crap. Any good and cheap pads out there? I was looking at Hawk and Ebc but haven’t ever bought any. Found a coupon for discbrakepads.net (brakesale-0930-2010) but they seem to only sell...
