I'm a defensive auto mechanic, meaning that I've never worked as one but to save money I will work on my cars and trucks when necessary. I bought pads and a rotor because when the pad went away the noise sounded like I was really tearing up a rotor. It turned out that the rotor was OK and only required a light refacing, Advance Auto took the rotor back with no questions asked. Good people to deal with.

I purchased the pads due to the recommendation of the counter guy. These pads did last 2 years on my vehicle but the stopping distance is poor. The amount of dust generated was higher than any other pads I've used. Also the fit against the caliper rail is so tight that it made installation difficult. The main issue is the warranty. Please read it close as they are not lifetime warranty. They will not replace the pads as competitors will unless there is a pad defect. They need to stop using lifetime warranty when selling and explain they do not replace for wear. Change the listing to limited defect warranty. Limited lifetime warranty leads one to believe it will be a lifetime replacement maybe limited by a certain limit to keep people from abusing the warranty.
