Race driven sintered metal is a good choice. Very tuff and the price can not be beat. I have em on one of my Kodiaks and I also bought new yamaha ones on the other. Will post long term results to show how much longer the race driven ones will last compared to oem....

Race driven! So far, they hold up great and at 40 bucks for all corners, it's a pretty good deal!

Same here! Setting on the shelf when I need them.
Race Driven is the way to go for getting the right parts.

Not that I know of but you can call Brian at Race Driven and he'll set you up with what you need.

Is there a promo code for gc members or is the price on their site what we get them for also? I think I'm going to order a set today my rears are looking a little worn out.

He told me when I asked him; At 40 buck for all corners he is not making a lot of money from that deal. so there is no additional deal for us GC member...
Anyway, at 40 bucks it's a pretty good deal considering they are better quality than OEM for a fraction of the price.
