I put these pads along with the wearever Brake rotors on my 2004 Jeep GC 5500 miles ago. They work well when it comes to stopping. What has been a PROBLEM is the SQUEALLING. It started almost immediatly and has not stopped since. I have done dozens of brake jobs in the past and have never had brakes constantly squeel like this. I dont usually write reviews but this has become really annoying, so I thought I would share.

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

    This is the first time I have used the Wearever brand of brake pads. I usually use "performance" pads on my Jeeps. They were out of stock, so I went with these. I was happy to see they are a well made pad with lots of material on them. The clips to install were included and fit very well in the new brackets I also purchased due to wear and rust on the old bracket. Install took just a few minutes and they seated quickly. Stopping power is great and distance is reduced from old brakes. Only time will tell how they hold up, but I am optimistic they will last a few years.

      These brake pads are of high quality and very affordable. I was surprised how well they fit without any modification. That made the installation easier and less time consuming. I would recommend this item to a professional mechanic or a do-it yourselfer back yard mechanic.

        These were replacement pads over new rotors, Easy to install, quality of pads are equal to much more expensive pads we looked at.

              I've installed these pads on my Jeep before and always had good results. The last 2 times though I had to modify the pads a little. The steel guide ends on the brake pad are a smidge too long and the pad won't slide easily in the bracket. I had to grind about 1/32" off each end of each brake pad and then it fit and slid beautifully.

                    Do these pads fit the Teves calipers or the Akebono calipers? I have Teves calipers on my 2001 Grand Cherokee Laredo 4.7 v8. Can you recommend ones that will work if these won't fit?

                  • Q:

                    I just bought these and my pads in the box don't match the picture. There's no slot in the middle. Is this normal? Also why does the picture show the hardware if no hardware is included?

                      Ok Brake pads or shoes always come in sets two wheels (front or back). You would never want to replace one side of anything that wears. Always do in sets of 2 this will keep the car balance. Same with calibers, tires, struts or shocks.
