I have a 98 S70 2.3 turbo and just need to replace the front and rear brake pads --- mine are worn and starting to squeak (I even got a ticket because I rolled a stop sign because I get annoyed when I come to a complete stop). <p>No big deal, right...Well, when I start reading threads about Volvo brakes I get WAAYYY more information than I thought I needed. My mechanic recommends I stick with OEM. But I find different OEM makers: Textar, Jurid, Dan-Block... My Dealer says he doesn't know who makes the brake pads. "They just come in a Volvo box". (The Parts Guy, not the Mechanic).<p>On this forum I see all kinds of other ideas. Hawk. Porterfields. ??? I just want good, reliable, non-squeaking brakes.
