After installation, the pads work great with straight stops and firm pedal. The front pads dropped right into place, however the rear pads, for my 2003 Thunderbird, had to be ground down about a 1/16" as they were longer than stock by this amount in length and could not physically be installed without modification.
EBC breaks and centric rotors
I bought these pads and centric premium rotors for the front. I gotta say after driving on these for about 2 weeks now i noticed a big difference. stopping power was way better than before....but that was mostly because my rotors were warped and my old pads were just about done.....All in all i gotta say good price and good value.
Pads stop great with no squeel
After waiting for four days for Auto Anything to approve a Paypal Payment. (Whats up with that?) The pads shipped and arrived the next day. Thats a full week waiting on jack stands. I got these because of problems with Quiet Stop plus ceramic pads, that build up gum on the rotors which wobble, overheat and crack. Now giving these Hawk ferro-carbon pads the test of time. So far I am impressed.
