        I'm an everyday driver with a little road rage, so this fairly price product was just right for my gas saver! Smooth ride since I installed them myself over a week ago. I have driven over 500 miles already with no complaints.

          Great product replacement for the price. Remember that this order is for a complete front-end brake job; that is, there are 4 brake pads in the package.

            Had to file the metal notches for improved fit / operation on the slide rails. Otherwise the installation went OK.

            Appear to be good value / the brakes work well.

                These brake pads are the pads that you need to do both sides of the front brakes.
