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

Installed these on a 2010 Mazda 3. To compress this caliper you need to rotate and push on the piston. I had a multi tool around for this, but none of the surfaces matched until I took a dremel to the pins. Ended up with not a perfect fit, but got the job done. Suggest making sure you have a proper tool before beginning this project.

        The absolute worst squeak. These brake pads squeal so bad that my neighbors have asked my to change them as I leave for work at 5am. One has actually offered to chip in for new ones. I will never buy Wearever again. It is the only brand that did this. I have been changing my brakes on this car for 7 years and never had a problem until this brand. After 2 months they never got any better. It was getting embarrassing to pull up at a stoplight, gas station, stop sign, shopping or workplace parking lot. Every pad squealed. I replaced them with another brand, good riddance, no problems now. It might just be the ones for a Mazda 5 but I doubt that.

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

                I installed a complete set of front and rear ceramic pads on my 2005 Volvo S40. The old pads were showing some wear at 60k miles and were miserably loud when cold. The squeal was unbearable when backing out of my buddies driveway.

                I had just installed some Akebono ceramics on my Audi S4 the week before and it had eliminated a squealing wheel on that. So I decided to give it a whirl on the S40. I didn't feel like spending $80 a set, so I went with these Advance version. Instead, it was under $80 for all 4 wheels. Like most pads, these were a breeze to install. I just applied some anti-squeal material on the backs of the pads and lubricated the slide pins.

                I have about 500 miles on them... did a light break in and them bedded the pads after about 300 miles or so. These things are very good. As with most ceramic pads, there seems to be a little less initial bite. But, I like a smooth even braking system. If you need more stopping power, exert a little more force. These are perfect, in my opinion. They reach the right price point, with good stopping power, and NO NOISE.

                There were zero quality issues and these were a perfect fit.

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

                  Wearever brake pads are a good middle of the road replacement pad for any do it yourself mechanic. The composite material stacks up against many of the more expensive name brands, and in most driving scenarios proves to be equally effective. The pads are easy to install and are nearly identical dimensions to the standard pad that comes with the car new. Good news to do it yourself types as the means the pads easily fit into the caliper and don't require any bending, prying or hammering to make them seat properly. A good value, but make sure to use some brake quiet on the pads.

                    Installed on a Mazdaspeed 3 which I race. The front brake pads are a higher friction race pad for increased fade resistance on the road course.

                    These rear pads have been doing a great job in all the different uses I have subjected them too. In the past I ran a performance pad on the rear and was disappointed with the results. A higher friction pad will tend to leave deposits when the emergency brake is used to hold the car. With this advanced material the feel and bite of the pad is still strong but does not have that negative trait.
