The best pads I ever purchased!!!

So far, these ceramic pads are great. Very easy to install, quiet, almost dust free, very good pedal response. Try them, you will not be sorry!

If you have a 4th Gen Toyota Camry, the site says you can use these. You CAN NOT. They will not fit at all. Do research, look for the PXD476H. You can even verify with Camry forums. These pads are for the CE model, or 14" rims. If you have the LE and above, with 15" rims, you need the PXD476H pads. Check my review on those specific pads and you'll see. The site says they won't fit, Advance might even tell you at the counter these aren't the right ones. Print off the PXD476H's, bring it with you, and show them...you want THESE (PXD476H) pads. I spent a whole weekend online and in the garage before I figured this out. Don't make the same mistake I did!

Nice pads. All the hardware needed but the stainless steel clips. They might not have been packed in box. They were not shown in the photo either. For the extra cost of these pads they should have been included.

        Confused by on-line catalog description

        By 

        from Lexington, MASS

        Verified Buyer

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

        Two nearly-identical (same manufacturer and price) brake pad products, PNAD562 & PNAD476, are both described as being suitable for wheel size 205/65R15 (i.e., 15" rims). In fact, PNAD562 is suited to 14" rims, while PNAD476 is suited to 15" rims.

        Also, spring retaining clips were too thick. I ended up using only two of the four supplied, and re-using two old clips.

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

            First rate quality and fit. My old shims were rusted and broken and I thought I was going to have to buy some new ones to complete the job. But these pads apparently had shim replacement metal already attached, as well as the brake wear indicators. The new pads just slipped right into place, and the new springs provided easily slipped into place. I also replaced the rotors with low cost Wearever rotors, since I had over 287,000 miles on the original rotors, and the brakes feel like new. I used the gentle burnishing process recommended on the package and so far, I could not be happier with the results. My wheels are more balanced also, since chunks of rusty metal had fallen off the rotors over time, and whenever I bought new tires, only the wheels were balanced, never the whole axle assembly. I also bought brake cleaner, fluid, and a one-man bleeder kit and the whole job came to about $115. Didn't need to bleed the brakes or use the fluid, so the whole job was done in about an hour.

                    A:

                    With reference to this Wearever Platinum Premium Ceramic Brake Pads - part# PNAD562, lubricate the few small screws on top and bottom of the caliper that hold it in place. The bushing that moves the caliper itself back and forth should be properly lubricated. If not, it can freeze up and fail to disengage the brakes properly. This will affect your gas mileage and cause excess wear on your brakes. Anywhere metal slides along metal -- such as where the pads slide inside the caliper housing -- should be lubricated. Don't ever put lubricant on the rotors or the insides of the pads where they contact the rotors. For any further assistance, please visit your nearest Advance Auto store or call us directly at 1-877-ADVANCE (238-2623) and one of our representatives there would be more than happy to assist you.

                  The picture shows 4 pads which makes it seem like buying one would be enough to do both passenger and driver side. Is this correct?
