Sometimes limited driving can affect the front brake pads and rotors due to corrosion, and dirt...inspect the pads for being worn unevenly...and the rotors for warping...the rotors would also cause the steering wheel to shake when applying the brakes...A small fix for a nice low mileage Ranger:) Hope this helps.

I just bought my 2004 buick lesabre and I already need new brake pads. I dont know whether I should get med grade pads or (high grade)ceramic pads. If I get the high grade would I special rotors?


You can use your stock rotors with ceramic pads. If you feel that the pads wore down too quickly then they may have been a less than optimal type. Keeping disc brakes clean is key to making them last longer. When there is brake dust and naturally occurring rust built up in the calipers and slides, then they don't release immediately or completely when you let off the brake pedal and they may actually drag your pads.

Replacement brake pads for 06 Lexus GS 300?


go with standard pads.they wear a little faster than ceramics.but they dont wear down brake rotors.ceramics pads are hard and they cause brakes to squeak.also your car is under warranty with lexus dealership.i would use what they said. because you have future brake problem. they will void out warranty for not using their brakes.

Ceramic Brake Pads or not?


Ceramic breaks are great for brake dust and they dont seem to want to squeel as easily. Yet they do like to get hot and cause problems with your rotor. I run ceramic on my 98 corvette and my 2008 Dodge truck and I have never had a problem. But i do regular maintance on my brakes that most people dont. I would recommend if you are just replacing the pads and are looking for long life and long term to not go ceramic. But those are my opions. I run mine on my truck and tow a horse trailers and they stop better

Early wear on front brakes /rotors for 2008 Town and Country


I work for a brake repair shop and trust me you are not alone.Enterprise and alot of other people bought the same van and had the same trouble.I hate to say but it doesnt stop there.About every 14 to 15 thousand miles you have to replace the front pads.As of now they dont have an upgrade,for instance ceramic pads, but I am sure they will very soon

You could upgrade to an exotic ceramic brake pad, but under normal driving situations this is overkill, expensive and will not give you "impressive" results.
The Mo-Par OEM stuff is really quite good!!!
It's more important to make sure that you flush out old fluid at least every two years and make sure that slide pins and all hardware are in good working order.
