    I bought the full OEM set (rotors/pads/sensors) because I knew my pads were very worn at ~24k miles or so. Replaced the pads, but I checked the disks and I had only used up about a third of the rotors (about 3 years in). Kept the rotors and sensors for the next change of pads. No issues at all. Brakes work perfectly. That was almost two years ago. It should be another two years before I need new pads since I now put only about 5 miles per year. I'm at under 31.5k miles now.

    I could maybe even get a third set of pads out of the rotors, but that's definitely pushing it, IMO, and I'd also risk potentially ruining a good (and expensive) set of OEM pads prematurely.

    No part # on your list. The mystery continues.

    Had my tires rotated today and took the opportunity to check my brakes.

    In October 2016, I put EBC pads and rotors (just the plain, not slotted or drilled) on the front, and just EBC pads on the back. I assume the back has the standard Land Rover rotors. That was about 21,500 miles ago. I live in a city and have a stop/go commute on city streets. Occasional highway trips.

    Front pads have a lot of life left.

    Rear pads probably need to be changed soon.

    The rear pads going first seems par for the course on LR4s.

    I'll call Akebobno. On the Akebono site they don't show any front pads for the LR4 regardless of model year. Perhaps their web catalog is out of date or screwed up.
