I ran through a few sets of stoptechs. Low to medium dust. No noise. Good all around performance for a daily driven call. All in all a very good pad.

People have said 255/35/18's work up front without rubbing as they are the same height as the 225/40/18's. Not sure with a +50 offset wheel though. That is the OEM rear size for the new models. ...

Honestly you can get brand new pad and rotors from Seawell for the rear for under 200. If all you need is pads those go for around $50. I have never heard of a caliper being "misaligned" so I can't...

Brake Change: Best way to depress the piston without removing caliper

I don't think a blown shock would change the ride height. The car is held up by the springs not the shock. The shock just dampens then spring. Agree with above posts it is probably just the ride...
