    Top one was bought from Advance Auto Parts, they were Akebono Ultra Premium Ceramics. Bottom one is OEM.

    The wrong pad, right? I saw no way to make them work. Just hoping someone can verify that these are definitely wrong.

    Frustrating night as I ordered pads for my accord and they were rear pads and not front ones. The funny part is my car has rear drum brakes so even if I ordered rear ones they should have been shoes. Well had both vehicles old pads out tonight and had to put them back in.:(

    ^ That. They should have holes on the top part for the pins to slide through.

    Take your originals with you to match them to the part stores, or look online to get em right. Try www.rockauto.com to match part numbers as well. They usually have pics and dimensions of everything.

    Always open the box!

    Pretty easy brake job if you're just doing the pads with those fixed calipers, GL! (Wish I had me some)

    No thanks on OEM, seems like everyone says an upgraded pad makes a huge difference in stopping distance. Will find a new website to order from.
