Best Brake Pads for T-Bird IRS

I've searched and can't find many choices. I believe that, with these cars larger rear weight bias, it's importatnt to have good grip back there.

Can you guy spoint me to some grippy pads for T-Bird IRS calipers?

Thanks!

For the street I am using the EBC Brakes Greenstuff pads #D347 or cross reference #DP21172. Soft pad, good initial bite, In heavy useage(track) they will wear fast. These are for the T-Bird Supercoupe rears.

Where can Porterfield T-Bird IRS pads be ordered? (Street I take it?)
Is there a part number for street?

R4-s 347-AP is the part # I believe for the porterfield R4-s pad you can order straight from Porterfield. The EBC Greenstuff Is what I use size D347, I got a set of the EBC Yellowstuff I am going to try too. The EBC Greenstuff is a good friction match for my fronts Fox calipers and Hawk HPS pads.

The part number may vary according to which year T-Bird your parts came from. For my '90 T'Bird SC rear brakes I have Porterfield AP-17-200 R4-S pads. You can call them for more info. They sell direct.

Hawk all the way. GM puts them in new Vetts for a reason. They work great-John
