    Great brake pads and I bought them using both an Advance Auto parts coupon code plus the manufactured had a $15 mail-in rebate. The pads are newly installed and braking feels good. Not sure how long they will last, but it has a Lifetime warranty.

    Only issue I had was that the box that I received was opened and there were no springs in the box. Removing the old pad one of the original springs broke, so I had to drive back to the store and buy replacment springs. After installing this set I purchased another set and the pads were wrapped together and it included a bag of springs.

    I purchased these brake pads (front set) for a 2009 Honda Civic LX. While I have used these brake pads in other vehicle applications they have worked great, no noise, good stopping power, no brake dust.

    I verified the part number as well as the advance employee at my store. These pads were simply too thick to fit the honda civic they were manufactured for. Initially I could not get the caliper to slide over these pads, with the piston fully retracted. Even trying to use a rubber hammer to tap the caliper over was of no use. Also note that I had cleaned any rust or debris from the calipers with a drill and wire brush.

    Thinking that possibly the new rotors were manufactured incorrectly I also tried these pads on the old rotor, still no luck, I then tried the opposite side and opposet set of pads with both new and old rotors and the opposite side verified the pads were too thick to fit into the caliper.

    At the store we visually compared them to the wearever platinum ceramic pads, these pads were around 1mm a piece thicker than the weaver platinum ceramic pads, so by using a set of these you are losing around 2mm of clearance.

    I returned these, purchased the wearever platinum brake pads, and had no issues on the install.

    After time wasted assembling and disassembling, plus a special trip to advance and back, I won't ever purchase these pads again.

    I can advice you not install these on a 2009 Honda Civic LX, this particular one had drum brakes in the rear. However, I would assume that most civics in this generation use the same front caliper and rotor setup.

                  Comments about Wagner ThermoQuiet Ceramic Brake Pads - Front (4-Pad Set):

                  This is an excellent pad. They come with backing shims and replacement slide inserts. These pads leave virtually no brake dust. I have been running them for at least 50k miles in my Honda Civic, and they still have plenty of life left in them. I prefer the feel of organic pads for light braking, but the performance of these ceramics during heavy braking is excellent. The main downside is a long break in period (I reused old rotors), which I feel reflects their slow wear rate more than anything. I did have to lightly grind the ears to get a good sliding for in my calipers.

                    • Q:

                      The kit comes with new hardware for where the tabs slide onto the pad bracket, but it does NOT include the thin metal shims that were between my caliper and the back of the brake pad. Does anyone know: are these thin metal shims needed or not? Should I just transfer them from my old pads to these?

I have a 2005 Honda Civic EX - I ordered the QC465A online and when i went to pick them up, the guy said he the listing called for a QC465. Amazon says the 465A is for the Civic and the 465 is for the Accord. So will these work?
