On my vehicle, it was a pretty straightforward operation, I replaced the rotors as well as the pads, as every time I used to take my car or truck in, they always said they could not be cut. The existing rotors were in good shape, so I will keep them as spares for the next time I do it. Everything was a proper fit and complete. My only complaint was that one of the new clips broke when I tried to install it. I had to reuse the old one, but no detrimental noises or brake problems have occurred. I followed the prescribed brake pad break in instructions, and you can feel the improvement as they get settled into place. Overall I am satisfied with the product and saved myself considerable money, as compared to the quotes for doing the pads and cutting the rotors from a few places.

2010 GMC Sierra. These brakes are dusty!! 10 times worse than OEM. I can't believe it. It's like I installed the cheapest metallic there is, but these are ceramic!? Truck used lightly, (no hauling, few miles).

Great quality pads, just installed but so far they have great bite on my new drilled/slotted rotors. If they hold up well over time, I may start using these on all my vehicles.

Break pads so far seem okay but the clips they packed where wrong and didn't fit right!! Frustrating if u do your own work and miles away from a the store to exchange them. I'd say double check the box!!

      A:

      Hi Rm, happy to assist you! Ceramic brake pads has longer lifespan than organic or semi-metallic. Ceramic pad manufacturers claim that because ceramic pads last longer, they actually cost less money in the long run.

  • Q:

    how would I know if I have vacuum boost or hydro boost

      A:

      Hello Greg, happy to help you with your question. When you open your hood, on the firewall on the driver side the master cylinder will be attached to the booster. A hydro boost unit will have various connectors attached to it. A vacuum boost unit will be a round unit with just a vacuum hose attached to it.

    • A:

      4WD can make a difference. Also are you replacing the front or rear? Make sure in the description that it says the correct location of the pads. Some cars/trucks have pads in the front and shoes for the rear, while others have pads all the way around.
