I would buy again

They do a great job at stopping ,but the one downside is they are a little loud, but for the price they do the job.

I recently switched to Advance Auto Parts because of your Speed Perks Program.
There is an available store front in the Davis Ford Crossing shopping Center, that is much closer to us on our part of town. There are no other Auto part stores on our part of town, so you would be the exclusive Auto parts store and get all the Business.
Your staff is helpful and knowledgeable. I recommend you to all my friends and Family members.
Your prices, especially with the Speed Perks Program, are as good or better than your competitors.
Your return polices are very good also.

        Used these to teach my teen son how to do a brake job on his explorer. The pads were an exact fit and seemed to seat nicely when burnished. I would use ceramics for performance cars, but the semi-mets are a good choice for a daily driver or teen car.

            My Ford Explorer is up in years and miles, and my purchase decision also considered the life of the vehicle: It should be the last set of brakes I put on it. I would have liked to have seen some kind of charts comparing the three levels of products. Also, consider replacing the caliper insert (small stainless tabs the pads engage to ) . The warranty is a joke: If you read it, the warranty zone is very narrow and the ability to get replacement pads is slim to none. That being said, the pads installed easy and the truck stops very nicely.

                          Hi Covboy82, glad to assist you! To replace the front brake pads you will require measuring caliper, tire blocks or bricks, lug nut wrench, jack, jack stand, breaker bar or a long ratchet, zip ties, block of wood and a c-clamp, big pan for brake fluid to drain into, bolt grease, and anti-Squeal aerosol spray. For help with your project, I recommend purchasing a Haynes or Chilton repair manual specifically for your vehicle. This should be able to assist you further into detail on how to repair or replace specific parts.
