Poor Quality

By

Comments about Carquest Wearever Platinum Professional Ceramic Brake Pads - Front (4-Pad Set):

They look to be good quality but they were .025 to .030" too long and too wide to fit in the caliper bracket. It looks like the metal cutting die was very dull and left a lot of flash around the tang that is supposed to fit in the clips. I ground them down to fit. I don't recommend this. Bring them back if they don't fit and get some better ones. Grinding them down leaves an uncoated metal edge thar will rust more quickly and cause them to bind up in the clips. The clips that come with the set seem to fit well into caliper bracket

    Comments about Carquest Wearever Platinum Professional Ceramic Brake Pads - Front (4-Pad Set):

    Be sure to put the squealers at the top, which means they only fit CORRECTLY on one side. (My daughter's car had the old set of squealer pads installed on the wrong sides, with the squealers at the bottom. The pads were almost ready to grind the discs at the upper end, while there was still enough pad thickness at the bottom end that the squealers hadn't started touching.

    New hardware came, as did a small pack of grease. Especially the grease is a nice, quality touch.

    I'm initially impressed.

        I read one review that said he had to file pad to fit. I had no problem. Care must be used to put the clips in the right location as they are not all the same. Love the inprovements in backing material.

          Comments about Carquest Wearever Platinum Professional Ceramic Brake Pads - Front (4-Pad Set):

          Seem like decent pads, had to file the top and bottom tabs due to some casting mismatch that resulted in too tight a fit in the caliper bracket channels. The included hardware clips are good quality but not as good as OEM, ended up cleaning and re-using the original ones. Also no leading bevels on the pads as shown in the picture on the box.
