Looked like nice pads, but there is a little bump on the bottom of the pad that prevents fitting my car even through it says on here it should.

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

The description for these brakes say they are an EXACT FIT for my 2006 Nissan Sentra S. They are not. I missed a days work because I took off the old brakes and a piece ot he old brakes broke off in the removal process. The rear pad on these bakes are different than the ones needed. DO NOT BUY THESE brakes for a 2006 Nissan Sentra S. You will be sorry

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

    Easy to install and Akebono is a reputable brand in the racing industry. I believe some F1 race teams use Akebono race pads.
    So far, vs the semi-metallics thet replaced: zero-to-minimal dust even after the bedding-in process and no squeaking whatsoever. Slightly less initial bite with ceramics but this is a daily driver so thats not an issue. I'd buy them again!

      Excellent brake pads. I'm on my second set and wouldn't have chosen another brand. These were perfect. They hold up well to abuse during hard driving and yet still drive easily with no noise under normal driving.
