2005 FX35 VIN Decode Brake pads

Howdy ya all, I'm a FX newbie! Wanted one for many years. I replaced my front brake pads with Bosch BC969 and Brembo rotors, however it seems the pads don't slide as freely in the channels as I'm used to?
I've noticed "on some pads for sale", it indicates "from 11-05" and "to 11-05". No indication of this on Bosch listings?

So I have "W55X" in the middle of my VIN. Does the first 5 indicate May? Assuming the second one indicates 2005?

Thanks for any insights, I put it back together yesterday and backed it out, pulled forward but I feel like I need a bit of verification.
Enjoy The Day!

I don't think Infiniti has a month location within their VIN. This is an old VIN decoder but it may help.


05 FX35, Silverstone, Graphite, Touring, Escutcheon, Sport Pedals, LED Dtrl's(thanks rookie), Stillen STB, +2 Timing, Stillen CAI, LMS Z-Tube, Grrrowwl!!, Plenum is next (OK - well - actually the G35 E-brake pedal is next, but I swear, something is going to happen with that plenum).
