Bendix, metallic. These are the best kind,but there is a drawback.
When using metallic pads you get what is called RAIL dust, this is
when the tiny pieces of metal from the pad stick to the car and you get tiny little rust spots on the paint job. So if using these you need to keep the car washed and waxed.

Sometimes upon braking to full stop, there is a thud maybe coming from the rearof the 2005 Jaguar S Type. Any suggestions?

Brakes may be sticking a bit. Do you have 4-wheel disk or drums in the back? This is more common in drum brakes that are not self-adjusting properly. If you have drum brakes, check to see if the drums are snug to the hub. If not, adjust to snug. If you have disk, check the parking brake adjustment (does it pull up far to lock?). If you need instructions, let me know and I'll try to look them up for you.

2005 Chevy Suburban I can't seem to keep brake rotors on front from warping. As soon as we put on new rotors within 100 miles they are warped again. I can't find anyone that knows why. I put on the best...

The hub faces sound like the need to be machined or replaced (whatever is cheaper). The caliper might be seized and causing a huge drag on one side, but it sounds more like the hub/carrier face needs attention.

Hope this helps, please vote for me if you agree.

Change Brakes

If you want to avoid problems, buy from a Toyota dealer's parts department. I tend to stick with the original parts on brakes since I have had a generic disk brake pad fail; only the light traffic at that point saved my **** since the car shot right through a stop sign.
