As noted by other reviewers, these pads are a tight fit when using hardware kit P/N 5645A. It's as though there is a wrong spec for material thickness on the HW kit, the pads are designed to fit the caliper bracket w/o the HW kit, the coating on the pads takes them out of tolerance limit or the pad backing plate tooling is in need of maintenance. Others have filed / ground the pad edges but this will expose the raw steel edge to rusting. Not a happy situation.

      Hi Lynn! This Carquest Wearever Gold Ceramic Brake Pads (4-Pad Set) Part No. GNAD785 comes with a limited lifetime replacement warranty. The limited lifetime warranty part can be refunded for cash/credit within the 90 days time frame. After that time expires, it can only be exchanged for a new item. So the warranty is valid for the life of the part as long as the customer owns the vehicle.

  • Q:

    What's the difference between semi-metallic & ceramic brake pads? What's the best for the money for a 99 silverado 5.3 in your opinion? I am only buying fronts.
    Asked on 9/18/2012 by Cort from Ohio

    1 answer

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      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. For any further assistance, please visit your nearest Advance Auto store or call us directly at 1-877-ADVANCE (238-2623) and one of our representatives there would be more than happy to assist you.
