Great replacement pads

Pads seem to be OEM quality great stopping power. And quiet pads absolutely no sounds at all. I've only used them for normal driving and they work great.

Wrong Part for 2001 Nissan Maxima

This is a wrong part for a 2001 Nissan Maxima. I bought these from the store recommended by the sales but it was not compatible with my vehicle

                  • Q:

                    Why do two of the pads have longer metal clips, and the other two do not? Does it matter where each is installed?

                      A:

                      With reference to your inquiry on the Wearever Gold Ceramic Brake Pads - Rear (4-Pad Set) - part# GNAD 540, these would be the wear indicators if it has a small loop that points the end back towards the pad material. If so place on inside of the rotor. One per side. Place with the indicator down.These are there to let you know when the pads need replacing as they will touch the rotor when the pads are worn down. For any further assistance, you may also call us at: 1-877-238-2623 or visit the nearest Advance Auto Parts store and one of our Parts Pros will gladly assist you with any questions or concerns you may have.
