I had these pads installed last weekend, and I immediately noticed an increase in stopping power. I was originally going to spend more on hawk HPS, but after talking to a few friends I decided to go with stoptech. What a wonderful choice! Cheaper then OEM, better then OEM, and I have to say that I am happier then if I went with OEM! The dealership wanted 400 per axle to do pads, and after buying these and the install I got all 4 done for under 300 bucks!!! Can't complain about that!!!
