      Comments about Carquest Wearever Gold Ceramic Brake Pads - Front (4-Pad Set):

      Do yourself a favor. Dont waste your money on cheap brake pads. Spend the extra money and buy a product that will last and not give you trouble. I bought a set of cheapos awhile back and had nothing but trouble from the beginning, and finally had to replace all of the pads and rotors after only about 10,000 miles. Then I bought these and everything is good as new.

            Old pads had 50% life remaining but squealed even after application of anti-squeal compound. Wearever Gold (ceramic) pads eliminated the noise.

                Comments about Carquest Wearever Gold Ceramic Brake Pads - Front (4-Pad Set):

                I installed these on a neighbor's minivan. I can't comment on the performance directly, but I haven't heard any negative comments from the driver (so it must be good, right?). I've purchased about four sets of Wearever brake pads for family/friends brake jobs this year. They've all been simple installations with no extra steps required to make the pads fit the slides or calipers.

                  AAP,
                  2005 Pontiac G6. Are these for the base model or the GT? Other sites show a difference, but AAP does not. Please help.

                    I'm happy to help, AskMeLater! Front brake pads with the part numbers ending in 1028 will only fit the base model. For the 2005 Pontiac G6 GT model, the part numbers for front brake pads will end in 1039.

                  • A:

                    Correction. I did the brakes on a 2005 G6 GT, and this part number (1028) is correct! Part number 1039 DOES NOT fit the 2005 G6 GT!

                • Q:

                  I have these brakes on the frount of my 2005 chevy malibu Lt and we turned the rotors and everything that needs to be greased is and everything is working fine but they sqeuak when I stop the more I drive it in a day the more they sqeuak like they are heating up. Could this be a defect in the break pads?

                    Possibly. Sometimes pads have to be broken in before the squeeking goes away.
