I should have mine in a week or so but don't know what the pad height is, just told them what I needed and they ordered them.

I bought a set of low pad 15x10 used off of a member here, I had to grind the rear calipers to fit.

Medium pad is what you need. Low pad height will not clear the stock brakes.
