    Rear coupe brakes

    question - my front brakes have been upgraded to decent OMP jobs, discs and pads. very happy with them - would this put more / less / same pressure / use / wear and tear on my rear brakes? I ask as I now need to replace the rear pads, and was wondering if I should get??? standard or uprate?

    Just bung on some Greenstuff pads they'll be fine. Standard GM pads on the rear discs are very soft. The rear pads on mine are wearing quicker than the fronts!
