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

            Really good quality semi-metallic brake pads at a reasonable price. Unless you have your old rotors resurfaced at an automotive shop, the pads will "memorize" the rotor surfaces and the service life will be shortened. Advance Auto has replacement rotors for a few dollars over having the old rusted rotors turned down at a shop. Plus, you aren't spending all your time and gas money running back and forth to the shop, plus waiting on the shop to get around to your job. Unless you just like doing brake jobs, recycle your old rotors and do the job right, the first time.

              Replaced the rear pads on my 2001 deville dts. Also turned my rotors for $20 at O'reilly's so all in all, not bad. It does a good job of applying to right friction so would buy it again

                Great product, easy to install and has close to OEM stopping power. I would recomend this product to anyone wanting an OEM type pad for their vehicle. These pads fit perfectly and have no squeel or vibration. These pads were installed on an "03" Cadillac and we were looking to maintain the original OEM stopping power . WE are very pleased with their performance so far.

                    A:

                    No, it does not include the shims. It reduces the friction noise between the pads and master cylinders.

                  • A:

                    I called my local store and they pulled these pads for the rear of my car to determine if they had shims. Part No: "GMKD 508". I thought it was strange that someone on here said they didnt come with them since I purchased fronts that had the shims. Anyway, the first box they looked at had no shims, I questioned it, he opened a different box, same part number and it had shims. He said he considered the box without shims deffective. So, sounds like they should have shims.

                  since they do not come with a shim,does that make these pads a poor choice

                    Wearever is one of the best brand for brake pad set. Shims can be bought separately or else the stock shims can be used with this brake pad set.
