I've been a long time fan of EBC brake pads and will continue to be one. These are excellent brake pads, low dust and low noise. Amazing bite!!

I utilized the Hawk pads and PowerSlot rotors as OEM replacements for my TSX. The front factory rotors had developed a warp and I had a shimmy on braking. The new pads and rotors corrected that problem and more. Braking feel is great, harder-shorter stops with less pressure, no brake fade. I couldn't be happier.

What do you mean when you say pair.

When you say a pair, is that four pads 2 for each side or is it just 1 side.

A pair means it includes all the pads needed for both wheels, front or rear. So, the front set of pads is a "pair" no matter how many pads that may include.
