Anyone had to grind their PF01s to fit the OEM calipers?

Getting ready for the track so I am putting in the PF01 pads I got for my OEM rotors. The rears fit fine but the front pads did not.

Specifically, the inner pad has a small flange that prevents the caliper from sitting right in the bracket. I just ground that beotch off and I'm good to go.

Anyone else have this issue?

Interesting - I did not have this issue. Might be a variance in manufacturing. I'll have to take a look at mine to see if there's anything on them Iike you describe.

The inner and outer pad shapes for the OEM pads are different...yet the PF 01s were the same.

Inner and outer backing plates on my PFC's are different. Looks like your set was mispackaged.

Yeah...mine I guess we're wrong. Either way, I busted out the grinder and went to town on them.
