I wish these came with new carriers. Even after i cleaned my old ones with brake cleaner and a wire brush, it was quite hard to get these pads to slip into place. It seems the edges that slip into the carrier are just a tad bit bigger than they should be. After i finally got them in, even when greased they didn't slide in the carriers very well. I actually managed to bend my carriers trying to get these to go in, which i had to bend back into place. But my brakes work fine so whatever...it's just kind of a hassle to install them.

At first attempt, the outboard pad wouldn't fit at all; the inboard pad only if tapped in with a hammer. they need to be snug, but loose enough to move to compensate for wear. I cleaned up rust on the brackets as I thought it might be decreasing clearances. Next I bought new guides. While in store, compared my pads with another set off the shelf: no difference. Made sure the guides were snugly installed without a gap or rust underneath. Tried a very light bit of silicone lube in the guides. Still no go on assembly. I finally got a good fit by filing down the tabs , top, bottom, and sides, to a good fit: that is, snug but able to move easily in and out on the guide. Most work I've ever had to do to install a set of pads. Next time I will probably spring for better pads and see if I am going to save any time.

Good pads

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

Theses pads are thick and they are more aggressive than the pads that were on my 03 corolla . Not sure what was on before , maybe ceramic. I debated on the ceramic or semi metallic , and went with semi metallic . Very pleased with stopping power and Im not concerned with brake dust or pads lasting for long periods of time . Would rather have better stopping power and not wear out rotters .

    I've used Wearever Silvers for years on many different cars and trucks in family fleet with good results. They wear well, and don't squeal. Only fall victim to sticky calipers.

      The pads were exact replacements for the pads that came on the Vibe when I purchased it. The original pads were worn down to the metal and making quite the racket. Easy to install and the old pads were easy to dispose of, just dropped them in to the trash

              Installed these on my 2003 Corolla S.

              These didn't come with any new hardware or wear indicators so I got the Wearever Disc Brake Hardware Kit and changed that out as well. I was originally going to get some ceramics, but comparing reviews, these were the best. This was my first time changing brake pads, and I watched a youtube video to do it, so for me to say it was easy says a lot. Did a few hard stops on a ride around the block after installation and my brake distance was decreased, no squeaking or squealing, took a little under an hour start to finish. Raising the car and removing the wheels took longer than changing the hardware and installing the new pads. Bottom line, next time I need pads, I will repurchase these.

              Buy online with coupon codes and pick up in store to save a lot of money, at least 20% off every online purchase. If you're new to car maintenance and are reading this review wondering if you can do this job... watch a youtube video and get to workin cause I can assure you, you can do it. Start to finish, both front tires, took right at an hour and this was my first brake job. Very easy to do, and saved a ton of time and money from not going to a mechanic.
