      1st time w/ this product. I like the idea of the kit. Rubber replacement guide pin boots not as heavy duty as the O.E. I'll see how it holds up!

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

        These pads seem to be high quality at a good price and are a perfect fit for my '98 VW Passat. They were easy to install. I immediately noticed a braking difference - my older rear pads and rotors were practically chewed to death. Anyway, a couple years ago I paid $350 to a local auto shop to put new rear rotors and pads on + I don't think they ever lubricated guide pins because bottom rear guide pins seized up on my car this time around. For about a hundred bucks, I put new rotors and pads on, replaced guide pins and dust boots, and bought a couple caliper repair kits and replaced caliper dust boots and piston seals.

        I'm sure they work great, but they are no where close to the right part for a 98 vw vr6 gti

          It's worth buying these brakes over the cheaper ones. It's always good to have something and not need it then need it and not have it. Great quality breaks!
          Excellent stopping time and control

          • Q:

            Do these ceramic pads require a special rotor or is the standard OEM steel rotor acceptable?

              A:

              A standard OEM steel rotor can be used with this Wearever Platinum Premium Ceramic Brake Pads - part# PNAD340. However, this Wearever Platinum Premium Ceramic Brake Pads are vehicle specific. In order to check the exact fit, we will need more information including the year, make, model, and engine size of your application before we can make a suggestion. Please visit your nearest Advance Auto store or call us directly at 1-877-ADVANCE (238-2623) and one of our representative there would be more than happy to assist you.
