I'd like to get a brake job done this weekend, but I need pads, stat.
Anyone know where I could get 89-93 miata pads like hawk hps or ebc greens?

I have some 1.8 brakes..... full setup.... pads and rotors. Not really anymore than a set of hawk or ebc pads.

And if you are selling it why not just some cheapo pads?

For one, I can lock the brakes up on stock rotors with cheap pads, so I don't need bigger brakes until I get some 225s or slicks
Two, getting crappy pads affects how the pedal feels, no me gusta crap brakes
Three, with my secret weapon x, I'll have nearly 4 pounds less unsprung weight PER CORNER
Four, I can keep my brake cooler shields
Five, secret weapon x looks cool
Six, I would have to bleed my brakes if I swapped in the 1.8
So, yea, considered it, but going a different direction

Make me a reasonable offer. We can swap you some 1.8 brakes at DIY tommorow.
