If you have a Chrysler T&C like me, and if you have rear disk brakes, not drum brakes, then these are the right pads for the front. Kind of confusing so I'm trying to help clarify. I ordered the wrong ones on line and had to take them to the local store to exchange. No problem getting the right ones, even got money back.

I drive between 15 and 120 miles per day five days a week with more some weekends.
The 70,000 mile brake inspection indicated it was time to replace pads and rotors. After replaceing the pads and rotors on the front of my 06 T & C Chrysler minivan the left front wheel made a grinding noise that sounded like metal to metal contact from worn out pad.
Disassembled, inspected, and resurfaced the pads on both sides with no effect. Just a few weeks before I had installed the same type of wearever silver pads and new rotors on the rear axle of the van with no problems.
Checked for all the obvious things, dragging pads, sticking piston in the caliper, no lube on caliper pins, etc. Did not find any problems. (The OEM pads and rotors were working perfectly, just getting worn.)
Decided to monitor the rotor temperature. During several stop and go trips around town the temperature never got above about 190 degrees F. on the front rotors. Rear rotors were around 140 degrees F. for the same trips. The interesting thing was that the temp was lower by several degrees on the rotor with the most noise/wear. This reinforced my thinking that the pad was too hard and was removing metal from the rotor rather than mostly just generating heat as it is designed to do.
After a couple of discussions with store employees, the store agreed to refund the price of the silver pads. However, I chose to replace the silver with the Thermoquiet, skipping the entire wearever line. The Thermoquiet is more expensive but I have had good luck with these on previous vehicles. (Also minivans) The rotors had to be resurfaced, an added expense to me.
All in all, I will not buy the silver again as they may be OK, but why take the chance? I gave them one star because they are probably better than the backing on the pad, but only just.

Comments about Wearever Silver Semi-Metallic Brake Pads - Front (4-Pad Set):

These front brake pads were the perfect fit and easily installed on our 2007 Dodge Grand Caravan. I've been retired give years and have become a YouTube Mechanic. Between our three families there are eight vehicles I maintain. This foes not include the other four vehicles that were wrecked or junked. I've done everything it seems, from oil changes to axle reacements to replacing a new head and head gaskets. Advance Auto has helped me to keep $25,000 in our pockets, plus I can get a new tool or two. Thanks Advance Auto.

    I've used these a few times before as well as more expensive pads. I see very little difference between these and the more expensive ones other than price. These are my go to pads.

        1 set required for to do 2 wheels.
        Be sure you have rear disc as there are different front pads for same vehicle equipped with rear drums. This does make a difference in part number.
