    05 Chevy 1500 Silverado Z71. Not sure what to make of these pads yet. They were installed 6/16. On 6/21 It was 100F out. After I stopped hard in heavy traffic the pedal got soft and the pads were smoking. The surface of the rotors turned blue. I had tried to bed them in after installation and drove the truck in light traffic for 5 days before this happened.They should have been fully broken in by then. The pedal came back and the blue is gone from the rotors now. It also seems to stop very well now. Not sure yet. I'll inspect at 500 miles and see what everything looks like. I may go with Raybestos or Hawk, if I need to.

                The Pads had to be fit to use. Expect To spend an hour or so to free them up with a to file to fit. Had no choice because the customer had to have his truck back ASAP. I would have returned them if I had time.

                  Installed with no trouble. Stops and feels like OE pads except for all the brake dust. OE pads hardly had any but these keep your wheels black.

                        These pads are different from the picture! do not buy if you own a 2005 Chevrolet Silverado LS -- 'cause these are not the right fit! what a waste of time. with a family, i don't have time to go back and forth to the store to find the right parts. i will be taking my business elsewhere. this is not the first time they have given me the wrong parts.

                                A:

                                Ceramic brake pads last longer than semi-metallic. They can take slightly more abuse. They leave minimal brake dust, and the dust that is left is less noticeable-a nice complement to chrome and alloy wheels. Ceramic brakes need to warm up a little before they attain the grip of semi-metallic pads. Semi-metallic brake pads have better grip than ceramic when cold. Brake dust is much more apparent in semi-metallic brake pads.

                                VIN number will allow to know the specifications of the car (ie; year, make, model, engine specifications), so that information can be used to identify the specific parts you need (In this case brake pads and rotors) that will fit your vehicle.
                                For compatibility of this part with your vehicle, please provide your vehicle's model.
