I used the Stoptech pads on mine. Low dust and great stopping power.

Stoptech's proprietary formula is a great one for SRT8's, but the bendix formula is a great street pad for those who do not go to the track.

Forget about the dust, you will not find a good bite with a low dust formula.

You may want to consider EBC Red's ceramic pads, that is what I use. Its may be slightly dearer though but they are very good pads

I get them from ebay or Amazon, its usually cheaper and its delivered

Please double check the EBC part number for 6.1 SRT8, they are

Front pads EBC DP31764C
Rear pads EBC DP31788C

I have also added some ebay.com links below, will take you to a vendor. If you make contact, could request a small discount, its worth a try

300 SRT8 EBC DP31764C Redstuff Front Brake Pads 100 | eBay

Chrysler 300C SRT8 EBC DP31788C Rear Brake Pads 100 | eBay


Useful tip when installing EBC ceramic pads

(a) Apply copper grease to the back of brake pad,
(b) but also most importantly apply to the top and bottom ends of the pad, see photo for illustration.
(c) Blast the callipers and disc with brake cleaning fluid before installation.
(d) After a weeks worth of driving, give another blast of spray with brake cleaning fluid to remove any loose dust. Dust will look pink in colour, its the residue or remains of the course material applied during manufacturing process to the contact surface of the pad designed to aid with initial bedding process. EBC is notoriously known for that, so blast away as much of that dust as possible and give the wheels a wash too. You won't need to do (d), to stock pads though

Wait, you've been to the track while using Posi Quiet pads? Or am I misreading the sequence of events?

The pads you got way back were Posi Quiet Semi Metallic. The newer Posi Quiet Ceramic have better bite and friction, and nearly the same low dust. For dual-use, though I concur with the suggestion to use StopTech Street Performance pads. For the non-SRT8 300C, they're branded as Centric Fleet Performance, but it's the exact same compound.

Oh, that's OK then. A single braking event at the end of the 1/4 mile drag strip is not going to bother the big SRT8 brakes at all, even with low dust street pads.

There are three different "flavors" of Posi Quiet pads. They are Semi Metallic, Ceramic, and Extended Wear. The first Posi Quiet pads available for the SRT8 were Semi Metallic. A few years ago, they added Ceramic to the product mix. Extended Wear is not yet available.

Compared to Posi Quiet Semi Metallic, the Posi Quiet Ceramic has better bite, higher friction, similar low dust, and just slightly higher pad and rotor wear rates. I prefer them.
