These brake pads were so easy to install and the braking feels like a cloud - soft and fluffy! :) If you are frustrated by squeaky wheels than this is the product for you. This was my second time installing brake pads on a car and my first time on an Altima and it was quick and easy. As a female, I needed help from my dad to put back the cylinder, but other than that I can do it on my own. If I can do it, anyone can do it.

Acceptable ceramic brake pads. They definitely not premium pads like the Akebono PorAct pads they replaced, on this car. The feel is less firm (mushy), but stops are smooth, with no grabby feeling, and thankfully no brake fade on several 50 mph to 0 stops in a 5 mile stretch of road on the commute.The included shims work really well, which was unexpected at this price point. And they're definitely low dust.For the Maxima pads, the box included a packet of caliper bolts, but no other hardware. Not a big deal, but it's not what's pictured.
