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

    I used the new clips that come with the pads and is a little trickier then using the old ones but I assume it helps keep them quieter. Just get a good view from behind and tap the pads in. Good value for a few bucks more you get smooth and quiet braking. I always buy better brake pads, hoping to get a few less feet of braking distance. I have had a few fender benders where a few feet would have saved me from damage and insurance hassles.

          Don't go cheap. Ceramic is the way to go. No brake dust that I can see. For the price they are great. I will never use semi-metalic again.
