Very Happy so far.

1/2 the price of the big name stuff w/ the same lifetime warranty. Very happy so far. We'll see how they last.

The finish quality of the steel backing plate was less than ideal, which made installation of the pads onto the calipers much more difficult. There seemed to be a lot of raised material or burrs on the pad material. It does not seem to have affected the performance of the brakes, but did not appear to provide a completely smooth contact surface to the brake rotors. I have not noticed any scarring or grooving on the rotors yet. Pads are working well at this point, and I have not noticed any fade although I do mostly highway driving.

Requires piston to be pressed all the way in with C-clamp. Gave an occasional little hop the first two weeks or so.

    Installed these on our minivan. They fit perfectly and were no trouble to install. No noise. They work fine, as good brakes should.
