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

      Replaced pads and rotors on 2006 Suburban. Gold pads came with anti-squeak pad installed on backs. Seems to fit great and work like a charm, especially with new Wearever rotors. Not sure why the fronts are ceramic and rears are semi-metallic. still improvement over old pads with 126K miles.

        I had to exchange these because the wrong model was sent but I am glad I did. While at the store I upgraded to platinum and it came with the appropriate shims and grease, this model did not.

          • Q:

            Just purchased and installed wearever gold semi-metallic pads on a 2004 chevy suburban and two of the pads had raised rivets or "nubs" on the back. I couldn't tell if this pad went on the inside or outside of the rotor. Installed all pads and had no problem putting it all together. If the position of the pad is incorrect, what is the harm?

            Thanks

              Hi Steve, I am happy to help! The 2004 Chevrolet Suburban does have that small difference i the pads. One of the main issues would be the caliper would not sit right on the pad and it would be unbalanced. The other issue is the caliper does not slide over the pad if it is installed improperly.
