I have found that these brake pads are tough enough for everyday stop and go driving. Installation was a breeze and there is no more brake noise, all of the squealing has stopped. They are well made and the material is of high quality and they are also thick for long life. I have taken my jeep through a lot of sand at the beach and driving in dry river beds for miles at a time, sometimes for a whole weekend. They hold up quite well in the sand and wet braking is great, they never get spongy feeling when they get wet. Some brake pads loose their hold when they are soaked but these pads hold just like they do when they are dry. I would recommend these to anyone who wants a high quality long lasting and dependable brake pad.

These pads are excellent as far as overall brake performace go. However, they put off an enormous amount of dust, coating rims in less than a day. Even the less expensive version of these pads provided less dust. If you don't care what your rims look like, this is a great product.

          I originally bought these pads for the warranty, turns out when you think your paying for a lifetime warranty it really isn't, used to be when they wore out you would get a new set. now they claim its a wear part so the warranty only covers cracks not wear. will never buy from this place again .

                        A:

                        I'm happy to help, Doug! Typically, when installing new brake pads, a disc brake hardware kit or axle kit is recommended to replace the abutment hardware. You may also need anti-rattle clips and in some cases caliper bushings as well.

                        If you can please provide your vehicle's year, make, model and engine size we can provide more specific part information for your vehicle.
