Professional Ceramic Brake Pads - Front (4-Pad Set):
I replaced the factory brakes on my daughters 2005 Mustang with these pads and new rotors. All necessary hardware is included as well as a pouch of grease for the caliper slides. They are quiet with good stopping power and pedal feel.
Good Brakes for replacements.
Great factory replacements and long lasting. We have had soft and hard braking over 30k miles and i replaced front pads in error and were only at 50% wear. Good stopping power under heavy petal load.
Replacement brakes for my car. It works great and no noise like I usually get when new brakes are installed. Stopping is very comfortable again.

Ok Pads but watch the spring clips, your Mustang has to have them, make sure that they are secured to the pad and not loose. Got 2 boxes to make 1 full set at the counter, no problem installing as with the newer Mustangs you have to take the caliper apart to install. Pads are good ceramic no noise and dust is minimal after 1 month and no problems.

              • Non-frequent braking

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

              semi-metallic pads are an acceptable replacement but are not as good as porcelain. Warping of rotors is more likely when semi-metallic pads are used. If short-term cost is a factor, semi-metallic pads will work fine. If long-term cost is a factor use porcelain pads and prolong the life of the rotors.

                  05 Mustang - Spring clips were poorly wound around a rivet. Clips fell off and could not be reattached. At$45 a pair I expected better quality...had to upgrade to $65 pair and installed without any problem. Might just be a problem with the Mustang application and not with the brand itself.

                    What is the difference between the CNAD 1081&1082 and Gnad 1081&1082 pads for my Mustang (besides the price). Hope fully you can tell me more than "...it's a little better pad". Thank you.
