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!
