I don't know what my pad set-up is. I didn't think to look at it when I had them changed. So I can assume I have whatever set-up comes from the factory.
I was shocked to notice a huuuge difference in height when they were installed, especially in the front. I was bummed out and wanted to change the pad height immediately.
I have noticed that the car has finally "settled in" in the last two weeks, and it's not as bad.
I can't really tell a big difference in the rear, but I can still see a difference in the front.
I'm running the stock tire size - 195 / 65 - 15's.
