I purchased these Wearever Gold Ceramic Brake Pads - Rear (4-Pad Set) - Part No. GNAD 729 for my 2000 Chevy Blazer on 2/4/16. I had to grind/file the shave of metal on the end tabs to make them fit properly. I also read a post on the q & a section "Asked on 9/29/2013 by Sparky from Easton, PA
I have used these pads for a few changes on my truck. This time, same pads, same Model # will not fit. The mold had a little shave of metal on the ends that make it not fit. Now I have to grind this off on all four to make fit. Seems like quality control is not checking these at all. I grinded the knubs left on the mold off and they fit. Will open box and look next time before I purchase if it happens again I will use different pads. So something that should of taken an hour or so took me 3 hours to do. Once I figured out why they did not fit it went as usual after grinding."
So it seems that this "quality control" issue is still not resolved. When purchasing "replacement parts" that are labeled "sure fit" for your vehicle, you should not have to "modify" them to make them fit properly.

              • Q:

                I notice that all 4 pads have squealers on them, so I guess it doesn't make a difference that the inner pad squealer is facing down and the outer squealer is facing toward wheel well?
