I used OEM pads for replacements on the rear. Your pads are the same. I had plenty of room, no issues. Make sure the caliper "floats" as it should. While the pads are out, slide it from side to side....

I ran as premium as I could get. 90% of the gas I burned on the trip was 91 or higher. Put a half a tank of 85 in it once.

When I arrived in Silverton on Wednesday 7/16 things were very different than Salida. I got the last room at the fifth motel I stopped at. Very pricey too. It was only about 5PM when I got there.
