    Comments about Carquest Wearever Gold Semi-Metallic Brake Pads - Front (4-Pad Set):

    If you select a Ford F150 Supercrew 3.5L V6 it tells you these is the correct front pads. These pads are nowhere close to fitting and when you return for the correct ones at the physical store, Advanced does not give you the online discount price you paid but makes you pay full price. They claim online orders are through a different company. Absolute joke, will not buy from here again.

      Comments about Carquest Wearever Gold Semi-Metallic Brake Pads - Front (4-Pad Set):

      Appear to be well made and do the job. Would have een nice if it included a little packet of high temp lube for where it rubs the caliper and guides for those that don't keep a tube around. Don't know yet if the pads will dirty up the wheels or not. If they do, they are probably not worth the difference in price from the "Silver" pads.

          Comments about Carquest Wearever Gold Semi-Metallic Brake Pads - Front (4-Pad Set):

          I ordered the part on line to get the discount and went and picked them up. When I tried to install the disc brake pads on the car they would not lock unto the calipers like they should. I took them back and they checked to make sure they were the right part number that there computer said and they were. Tried to get another set of pads and they had no more in stock. The pads did not match the old ones that I took off the car.I bought there cheaper set of pads because they didn't have any more in stock of the ones they sold me. Then they wouldn't give me my discount since I didn't order them on the internet. Its not my fault they don't stock any more than 1 set of pads in there store. They should fix that problem or at least give me my discount on there other set that I bought from them. They also need to find out why they didn't fit my car like they were suppose to and take care of that problem.
