    The pads are advertised in the specifications as having in excess of .50" of friction material per pad. The pads have about .38" of material and the wear indicators will contact the surface of the rotor at approximately 50% usage of the friction material. Nice going. You get to use 50% of the friction material and then you throw the rest away because your brakes make noise. Either build the pads to the specs or shorten the length of the wear indicators so the drivers can use a greater amount of the friction material safely.

        These were an exact replacement for my 98 Regal. They were easy to install with no oddball specialty tools. They also satisfied my expectations and needs for my purchase. I'll be back for additional parts in the future. Thanks for offering great parts and prices.

        Bought these pads for my wifes' 2005 Buick Rendezvous. Her old pads left brake dust all over wheels. These pads, after a month of use, we see none of that. Wife has said the brake pedal seems more responsive too, since installing.

            Pads are great, I've used these in the past, and never had a problem, only complaint is they don't have the metal hardware they used to include in the box it's an extra cost and should be replaced with the pads

              My back brakes were making noise, so I picked up these pads and for the price, they are good quality. They installed easy and stop great. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who is replacing the factory pads on their vehicle.

                  I bought these to replace my rear semi metallic pads while replacing my trailing arms and sway bar. I got a good deal on them and theyre pretty good for the price. Not the same quality as my wagner thermoquiets i got on the front but they were less than half the price.

                    These pads are great on my 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix. I always choose the gold pads for any car I work on, whether it's mine or a friends. The only complaint I have is that on this pair there was some extra material on the ears of the pads where they fit into the caliper cradle. I had to file it down before I put them in. Not a common proble, but it happens once in a while. I use these pads mostly because I have never had a problem with them making noise. That's what most people complain about when you use cheap brake pads.
