MCHENRY, Ill. – June 14, 2018 – Raybestos® announces its completely restored 1953 Chevrolet pickup truck is now featured on a medium-sized cabinet and is available in the U.S. and Canada while supplies last, according to Kristin Grons, marketing manager, Brake Parts Inc.
“As a bonus, each cabinet contains a Raybestos Chevy pickup sweepstakes entry card containing five entries for a chance to win this ‘50s beauty,” said Grons. “We’re still offering the Raybestos branded large-sized cabinet so if your shop needs extra storage, order it too.”
The Raybestos Chevy Pickup Cabinet measures 19-3/4-inches high, 30-inches wide and 13-inches deep. The large Raybestos branded cabinet measures 38-inches high, 32-inches wide and 15-inches deep. There is an option to purchase the Raybestos branded cabinet with six sets of Element3™ EHT™ Enhanced Hybrid Technology or Element3 PG Professional Grade™ brake pads.
Element3 EHT Enhanced Hybrid Technology brake pads include the best attributes of ceramic and semi-metallic all in one pad to provide the ultimate in noise damping and excellent pedal feel. Engineered for maximum control in all conditions, including aggressive stopping situations, and formulated for long life, less noise and reduced dust, these pads deliver exceptional braking. Late model coverage is available for domestic and import applications. Superior multi-layer noise-reducing shims promote quiet stopping performance over a variety of temperature ranges and vehicle platforms.
Delivering the best attributes of semi-metallic or ceramic comparable to OE, Element3 PG Professional Grade brake pads were developed for everyday driving conditions. These premium pads round out the coverage for import and domestic applications and extend the premium quality that technicians expect from the Element3 brands to a full range of vehicles. The brake pads include application-specific slots and chamfers to suppress noise and are factory cured for effective braking right out of the box.

In part six of this series, we show you what a properly cleaned caliper looks like and how to install brake pads.
Cleaning Caliper Brackets:
Caliper brackets, especially in the Rust Belt, accumulate a lot of rust in the areas under the abutment clips. If too much rust is allowed to build up in these areas, it can affect the ability of the brake pads to slide freely within the caliper bracket. This causes problems such as brake noise, brake pull and premature/uneven pad wear.
There are two methods used to clean the areas underneath the caliper brackets.
