Much improved braking!
My wife wanted more aggressive stopping in her LR so after looking around we selected these and I am glad we did. Her truck stops better than ever. They seem a little noisier than OE but it's a "boy, I sure am stopping this thing" sound versus a squeaking sound (hope that makes sense). I haven't noticed a change in brake dust yet so keeping my fingers crossed there. They are more expensive than many pads but they do what we wanted so I didn't ding the price/value rating. Highly recommended!
Brake pads didn't fit correctly.
I ordered these brake pads as a direct replacement for my 2006 Nissan Sentra 1.8S and Auto Anything state it was a direct replacement. Upon receiving them; I realized that the pads without the clip build in wouldn't find without hitting the side of the brake caliper support bracket. The Hawk pad external body was more rectangular whereas the old pad bodies has around a 30 degree angle at the end. The angle at the end allowed the pad bodies from hitting the caliper support.
