I purchased Centric brake pads and rotors on RockAuto a few months ago for the front. The pads are extremely noisy and create so much dust its starting to bother me.
Any other brands I should consider? I can get pads directly from Honda for $55 but I'm willing to spend a little more for something better. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I'm still liking these Raybestos EHT Element 3 pads.

I've tried most brands and have stopped looking at powerstop z23 pads. Low dust and great stopping. Good price as well. I will be using them when my brakes are due. I use their blank rotors as well.

Akebono ProACT - currently using these on both my vehicles and they're holding up quite well. Still produce some dust as all pads tend to do but it easily washes away. Certain auto car washes might not do it but a wet soapy rag will !
read up on them here - Akebono Pro-ACT Ultra-Premium Ceramic Brake Pads
also, can't speak for ALL applications but mine were Made-In-USA, as in The United States

For that price I think I’ll try these out. Now the question is...do I resurface the rotors?
If warped, I'd replace before resurfacing. New rotor pricing is very affordable.

I'm confused about the 'lower dust pads'.

How are the 'upper dust pads' doing? LOL

I jest, have a good day.

It's a great thread with a lot of first hand knowledge and experiences- thanks.

Oh, lol. Guess it should be rephrased, "brake pads that create less dust."

Try braking hard a few times with the new pads and see if that removes any deposits from the rotors.
I would replace the rotors if scored, worn or notice some significant wobble. In this particular case of possible brake pad deposits on the rotor what about some light sanding?

Ya, or just use a single edge razor scraper.

What, you mean like the 'brake bedding' procedures suggest? You don't say? LOL
