LR2 Rotors and Pads Job

Hi all,

I am new here and I am hoping to get some advice on a brake job. I have a 2008 LR2 and I need rotors and pads all around. I am looking into aftermarket parts, but I don't know how to judge any of them for this car. We have used Centric discs on our other car before, but it's a Honda Prelude, not a Land Rover - not really a good conmparison. So...


1. What brands do you recommend for rotors?

2. What brands do you recommend for pads?

3. If you end up recommending genuine LR parts then do you order online from somewhere or just order from the local dealership??

4. Are there any tricky bolts or funky details that make this job on the LR2 unique, or should it be pretty much like any other disc brake job?

Thanks,
SVP

EBC makes Greenstuff pads for the LR2. They should be better than stock and less squeaky. OEM solid rotors are the best option for any street vehicle. I haven't done mine yet, so I can't speak to any special needs. Why not take the opportunity to do a writeup?

I went with the Extended Wear PosiQuiet from Amazon and DiscountBrakes ... total for both front and rear was around $80 or so.

Discount Brakes - 2008 Land Rover LR2 HSE 6 Cyl 3.2L

Brake job was pretty straightforward although putting in the front pads was a little tricky when you replace the brake-holder bracket; pad just DID NOT want to go in there.

In the below image, its the pad opposite the side of the piston - here I took the bracket out to check for fit because it was such a pain - the side on the piston was easy, the other side ... not so much. Hope its easier for you!

The original pads are FORD parts, nothing on a Volvo though, completely different. Trust me we tried to match them up. But we surmise they are from a ford escape newer body style though.

I used to work on Rovers. Got a question just ask, need a Rover looked at, Albany, New York.

LR2 2011 brakes

Original Brake pads on my 2011 LR2 is LR branded ATE Semi-metallic pads. You can get them on
http://www.autopartswarehouse.com/se...:Brake+Pad+Set)

However I would not recommend them due to the extensive dust issues. I will probably replace them with ceramics.

LR2 3.2 I6 HSE Break Pads

Hi All

I am seeking advice on if there is any variance in brake pad sizes for the above vehicle. I am in uAE and landrover here are attempting to charge $300 US for replacement front and rear pads EXCLUDING the fitting. I can see many pads available MINTEX for example on ebay UK for approx $100. However there are not many 3.2 LR2's in UK as fuel is so expensive and the companies i have contacted are not convinced they have the correct type of brake pad.

Please advise if there is 1 standard size of brake pad for this particular vehicle

Many thanks
Garry

Brake PADS size

LR2 used almost aways the same brakes. LR2 2010 and 2011 and 2012 are all the same size brakes. US OEM price is $106 for front set and $80 for the rear.
You can buy them from any US site, or green stuff from amazon.

Used Centric rotors, and posi-quiet pads. Not bad, initial bite is worse than stock, but no dust and good stopping power when you get on it
