The Ears or Tabs on replacement product are slightly larger than the stock pads and had to be reduced by about 1/8th inch in diameter to fit stock caliper. Not a big deal unless a grinder not available to do the reduction on the tab; otherwise, could be a show stopper.

Replaced original front pads with these (yes I know this product is for rear) but I wonder why the Wearever Gold fronts are not coming up available any more? While I like the pedal feel and smoothness of stopping, they advertise "cleaner wheel" on the box. Nothing could be further from the truth. These are absolutely unacceptable in the amount of filth these deposit on my front wheels. Worst I have EVER used in that regard. Needs serious improvement. If I had the time I would take them off and go with something that does not require wheel cleaning on a daily basis. But for what they were designed to do, they do an adequate job. The filth is ridiculously bad.

    Extremely easy to replace brake pads and of good quality. Will see with time how long they last but being ceramic, should be for a very long time.

      Out of the box the tabs are longer then the original OEM pads. If you don't have the grinder available it could be a problem to install.

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

      They were easy to install. As long as you know how to change a tire you can change brakes. Didn't take a long time install them because it common sense. I dont here the grainding noise anymore. But now that I have them it feels like I'm pushing my brake pedal all the way to the floor. Im pretty sure that it shouldn't feel this way. The brake lines were bled and everything. It could also be because I haven't driven my car in about four months so I need to get use to the feel again but I don't remember it feeling that loose

              I didn't install these pads because once I "got in there" to replace the wheel hub, I found out the brake pads were in good shape (which are the same pads this review is for). So far the pads have performed well.

                      One Brake Pad set replaces both inside & outside pads for both rear wheels; so, you need on one set for the rear wheels and if doing the front you will need one set of pads for the front as they are larger pads. But one set will cover both wheels, either front or rear.
