2004 Corolla

These pads fit ok. Drove for about a day and they seem to work fine. Not much different from what the previous owner put in.

These are your basic, average quality pads. They don't come with the installation brackets or caliper lube. While the later may not be needed, I was very disappointed that they didn't include brakets or the wear sensors with these.

The box claimed that these are premium pads--they are not premium--hence the 3 star rating. Material is listed a ceramic, but I am not sure how much of the ceramic fibers there are.

I would recommend it to a friend, but very reluctantly. It may be worth spending a little more on a truly "premium" brand.

      I installed these brake pads along with a new set of rotors on my brother's 2006 Corolla S and lasted about 35,000 miles before wearing out. Didn't have any issues installing, no issues throughout the life of the pads, and pretty good quality for the price.

                  I bought these pads because they said Premium Ceramic brake pads and they were decently priced. These are probably the worst brake pads I've ever purchased. They started squealing a few days after I put them on. Ive kept them on for about 2 months hoping they would eventually stop squealing but it just got louder and louder to the point where I had to swap them out. To my surprise they were already a good 1/3rd of the way worn, and in only 2 months. I do not know if it was just the set I purchased that are like this but I will not be buying wearever products anymore.

                    • Q:

                      Brass clips, are they required? and what purpose? I'm think they are are wear indications and they seem to be source of a high pitch. Is there more than one way to install them. There were no instruction in box.

                        The limited lifetime replacement warranty covers manufacturer defects for the lifetime of the vehicle under the original owner who purchased the part. It does not cover normal wear-and-tear, an example is if the brake pads, clutch disc, etc. are worn out and need replacing since those types of parts are designed to wear out over time. If the part is ever warrantied out, the replacement part will only be covered for an additional 90 days, the lifetime warranty does not start over on the replacement part

                        A:

                        D/P(commonly 'Low noise and dust proof') pads are made of a complex mix of metallic powders (to absorb heat), refractory material (to provide friction), friction modifiers (to alter feel), graphites (to minimize rotor wear and eliminate noise), mixed together, pressed to form the shape, then sintered at high temperature and pressure. This Wearever Gold D/P WEAREVER GOLD (Part No. GNAD 923) is made with the above mentioned composition.
