Ah well, I did OEM rotors and Akebono pads last week and it seems good though I am surprised at the perceived decrease in initial bite. I've had a few times now where I've been concerned about them not working as expected but a little more pressure and they bite down better. I will try re-bedding them in the next couple of days and see how it goes.
Akebono are ceramic which have poor initial bite because they need to heat up to work. Hawk 5.0 pads have great bite.
