Bendix D43IQ - IQ Import Quiet Semi-Metallic Front Brake Pad Set

Price: $25.00
Availability: Out Of Stock
Quantity Available: 0

Bendix® IQ® disc brake pads address the #1 complaint following brake pad service on import vehicles - NOISE. IQ's advanced-engineered friction formula provides quieter braking than the leading aftermarket pad. In fact, testing has shown IQ to be as quiet as Original Equipment.

Featuring integrally molded attachments that mirror OE, advanced-engineered friction material for virtually noise-free braking, outstanding initial stopping power, and our completely reformulated titanium metallic coating (also featured on TitianiuMetallic II brake pads) on semi-metallic formulations, IQ offers outstanding stopping power. These disc brake pads also provide shorter stopping distances for an added measure of safety and long wear life for even greater value. Every set comes complete with high quality steel shims and a tube of brake lubricant for added insurance against brake noise.

Bendix IQ brake pads are available for almost every import vehicle on the road, with application-specific formulations to ensure the 'right' part for the job. With IQ, noise related comebacks are virtually eliminated.


Dust has become one of the key factors in North American OE brake development - especially with the growing popularity of alloy wheels on high performance vehicles. High performance means higher dust levels and more unsightly black build-up on those wheels. As a result, we're constantly working to lower dust generation. Our new, cleaner friction formulas were developed using Design-of-Experiment (DOE) techniques, which allow our engineers to select the appropriate raw materials to reduce rotor wear - the main cause of brake dust. We studied material composition, particle size, and chemistry - and, then chose the right mix of materials to minimize brake dust.

The result: Using colorometer testing/Pantone readings we were able to determine that dust generation in the new formula family was significantly reduced. All due to the material compounding and processing work that was done.


Bendix® is doing research in noise technology that's unheard of in the industry. Brake noise itself is caused by vibration. To measure vibration, we use advanced modeling techniques, including Finite Modal Analysis. By suspending a brake pad, attaching a small three-axis accelerometer to it and then tapping it with a small force hammer, we're able to get a computer-generated readout on how the pad is vibrating. Our engineers can take this information and create an accurate computer model of the pad. From there, we design chamfer, slot, and shim (insulator) configurations to minimize the audible noise frequencies

The result: Noise is the number one reason for customer comebacks after they have brake work done. Our new, noise-free friction formulas have been further enhanced after years of rigorous testing and development on Original Equipment platforms. These formulas offer a 79% reduction in noise compared to our competitors.
