i was thankful that the pad set included the rubber sleeves for the caliper pins were included with the pads. Mine were completely rusted inside and had they not been included, I would have had to find a ride back to the store to buy them seperately. The pads were good quality and fit great.

Right pads made wrong made right.

The first set of pads I bought were defective. They were manufactured unevenly. Returned them and got another set free. They worked like a charm.

                Appeared to be a good quality product. Too early to see how much brake dust we get, but aren't they all dusty anyway?

                  • Q:

                    Why are these reviews so useless? "Replacing originals... we'll see how they work.... they might generate dust, but don't they all...." Really. I want to know how they last, how much noise they make, how much dust they generate, if they fit correctly.

                  • Q:

                    The answer given by Kevin may be incorrect, I would think that this item would do one axle, and include four pad, two per wheel. Can you verify this?

                      This set contains four pads, two per wheel, and will do the complete front end. If you need rotors, you will need to order two.
