I would buy this product again.

I shopped online for the best deal. Bizrate coupons provided me a substantial savings over the standard prices, which were already competitive.

i have done many, many brake jobs on my various cars/trucks over the years, it was a typical installation, which included new wearever rotors, i cleaned everthing very well and applied anti squeal compound to back of pads during install, everything was good for a couple of weeks, then i began to notice a very annoying squeal from about 10 miles an hour down to complete stop especially when brakes get hot, these are also making a large amount of brake dust mess on my wheels,i will be changing these out for ceramics and hoping to get my money back, i won't buy them again

                    As an ASE Master Mechanic the product stated an exact fit this was very important. I was able to complete the brake job that day with no problems.

                    • Q:

                      What comes in the box with Wearever Gold brake pads for a 2004 Subaru Forrester? I just purchased a box of Wearever Gold brake pads and inside their are only four pads wrapped with a rubber band. Are shims supposed to be in the box? The description says shims are included.

                      Also, are retaining clips included?

                      Thanks.

                    • Q:

                      Does it matter which side of the rotor to put the pad with the tab on the left hand side? I couldn't remember if it was on the inside of the rotor or the outside and I replaced them with the tab sticking out. Will that be a problem and should I switch them if necessary?

                        The brake pads will be the same for both the front driver side and front passenger side and it does not matter with the sides of the brake rotors.
