    issues with shims for 2010 Civic

          Comments about ProAct Ultra Premium Ceramic Brake Pads - Front (4-Pad Set):

          I bought these for a 2010 Civic. The original pads have 2 shims on the piston side, but only 1 shim on the adjacent side. The Akebono pads come with 1 shim per pad. I tried to reuse the original 2nd shim, but the Akebono pads were slightly larger, and the original 2nd piston side shim would not fit properly (too small).
          I then tried to use all of the original shims on the new pads, and they were very loose with lots of slop, which did not seem right. So I returned these and got Honda pads, which came with 6 shim pads, and the shims fit perfectly.
          Since this said exact fit for 2010 Civic, these pads should have fit the 2nd original Honda piston side shim, or they should include 6 shims like Honda replacement pads (and original installation) include.

              Comments about ProAct Ultra Premium Ceramic Brake Pads - Front (4-Pad Set):

              I have been an auto tech for almost 17 years and have used every major brand out there. These brakes are some of the best pads available. It makes sense why they work so well and that is because Akebono makes the brake pads for over 10 car manufacturers including Honda. I use them on my personal vehicles and dozens of my customers over the years without 1 complaint. As a person that has performed well over 1,000 brake services, I highly recommend them.

                These are my favorite pads for my 2008 Honda Civic. They perform better then OEM and last longer and didn't wear my rotor down. No dusting. The fitting is perfect. Highly reccomended.

                  I got these installed. Took the guy 45 minutes for the front. Beware this only is for the front pair. I thought this price was for all 4 sides but only the front two. Luckily I didn't need for the back side.
