I put a set of these on my Sierra ten months ago (along with new rotors, #YH145582) to replace worn out front parts. I was immediately pleased with their quiet and competent performance. However their real value was shown this last weekend, when I was returning home from an out-of-town Christmas gathering with myself, my sister, and my girlfriend in the truck, when an inattentive driver stopped, then foolishly lurched into the intersection in front of us at the worst possible time. A slammed-down-foot, sixty-to-zero panic stop later we were less than ten feet from the rightly-so scared-senseless other driver. Thank you GMC, Cooper Tires, and WEAREVER BRAKE PARTS!!

Replaced pads and rotors at the same time. I was looking forward to less dust than the 80,000 mile discs that I was replacing. Wrong! These things dust twice as bad as stock discs. They stop fine and don't seem to fade bad. But keep your wheel brush handy.

      Comments about Carquest Wearever Gold Ceramic Brake Pads - Front (4-Pad Set):

      Worked perfectly. Just be sure to the right ones on each side. One side has a cutout and the other doesn't. The cutout one will work on either side but the other one won't. I found out the hard way and had to take it back apart.

              I had problems with my old pads hanging and causing a jerk at very low speeds, I had replaced the pins that hold the calipers, did not help. replacing the pads and new rotors solved the problem, plus i have the satisfaction and peace of mind knowing that i have excellent braking power without the hanging and jerking action. I should have done this much sooner than i did. I just returned from vacation and traveled over 1200 miles with no problems, smooth braking and the assurance that my family was much safer.

                    Whats the difference between the Gold ceramic brake pads and the Platinum series ceramic brake pads?

                      A:

                      Hi Michael, I'm glad to assist you. The Platinum series ceramic brake pads react very similar to the Gold ceramic brake pads. The braking improves significantly once you put on some miles. Very low dust on both pads and no noise. If the oem pads were ceramic for the application, then there is no difference between the gold pads and the platinum pads. The platinum pads come with hardware that the gold pads do not.

                      A:

                      Hi Seabass, glad to assist you! The vacuum booster is a metal canister that contains a clever valve and a diaphragm. A rod going through the center of the canister connects to the master cylinder's piston on one side and to the pedal linkage on the other. However, I would suggest that you take your vehicle and get it thoroughly checked by a certified mechanic before buying any parts that may/may not solve the problem.
