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

These brake pads got rid of the squeaking from the very first push of the brake pedal. They were simple to install and came complete with everything necessary. That means that they came with the Moly_lube. Of course that was the only negative also. Using anything other than the included lube voids the warranty and there is so little of it in the package that it was messy trying to squeeze every bit out of the package. Other than that, I would highly recommend these for quality, ease of installation and reasonable price.

        Outstanding pad. The only catch is the tiny packet of Moly that comes with. Be certain to buy a tube of lube if you don't already have one. Moly on any moving part (obviously not on the pad surface) and you're golden. You will also need the hardware kit for this as well. Awesome pad - no complaints.

            Just installed these on Sunday. Can feel no change in braking, which I take as a good sign. Easy to instal if you know what needs to be done.

            OEM had shims and replacements did not. Had to return to parts counter to determine if they were needed or OEM shims had to be re-installed. We decided the backing was the shim on the new pads.

            • Q:

              It looks like the backing plate is already installed on these pads out of the box. Are there any other shims or noise insulators that need to be installed as well? Or are these good to go out of the box

                A:

                To determine which is the inner and outer Brake pads, Pay careful attention to the subtle difference between the inner and outer Brake pads. Outer pads typically have thicker lining compared to the inner ones.

            • Q:

              I purchased these pads for my 2005 pontiac vibe. Do I need to buy shims for these pads or are they already attached by the manufacturer? thanks.
