Get outta the "zone" and into a real parts store. A NAPA store, Carquest, or even an O'Reilly's.
At NAPA, go for the AE or "Application Engineered" pads. Those are the ones made to match best with the original equipment brakes. However, if you really want to kick it up a notch, ask the parts people for the fleet heavy-duty pads.
Remember, though, as jtpuckett pointed out, check the surfacing of the rotors. Too smooth is just as bad as too rough, and judging from your other posts about this vehicle, you may have other problems.
Good Luck

Front brakes locking up on 2007 Chevrolet equinox


There are many possible factors including incorrect parts, defective rotor - pads - actuator, improperly bled front brake line, improper maintenance practice during last service. Best to take the vehicle to a qualified mechanic as soon as possible for your and others safety. Tow if you feel it is unsafe to drive that distance. Best of luck.

I have a 2007 jeep compass with just over 29,000 mi on it. I have not had to replace brakes as yet but want to know when I should expect to?


They are probably wore by now. The brakes will start to squeel when they are wore down bad. It will happen when you apply the brakes or turn. They might go to 40,000 miles. They are probably wore but not to bad. Change them at will. As long as you are not hearing noises, you are good.

Brakes are really hard to press. You must push all the way to the floor. Feels like only the front is stopping the car. What is the problem?


if the pedal feels like a rock, chances are you have a brake booster that is no good. they are simple spring loaded, diaphraghm mechanism that uses vacuum to assist your foot pressure while you are pushing. if the diaphraghm is torn you dont get the assist.

Abs light


This is a (4) four wheel sensor system and more than likely one of them has failed. This will cause ABS module to turn on warning lamp and make the brake pedal 'act up' under the right conditions.This 'acting up' is the ABS system getting a false signal that a wheel is not turning the same as the others when it actually is. Have it scanned for codes and a streaming data scan on a road test under the same conditions that you are experiencing the 'act up' to pinpoint the fault. Hope this helps! Please rate me.

Brakes on my 1989 oldsmobile cutlass ciera ..


Sounds like your brake hose is broken down inside(the rubber hose between the caliper and the meatal brake line) . It will let fluid in and not let it back out acting as a 1-way check valve causing a drag and your pads to wear out early.

Good Luck.

Rear Brakes


Brakes can vary in the amount of time that they last. For starters there are many diffrent grades of pads, the cheap pads last me about a month, but the good expensive pads last me 6-8months or so, and I drive really hard. So depending on how drive can determine how long they last. Usually you can replace your rear pads once for every two or three sets of front pads you replace as most of the braking work is done from the front. Pads are made intentionally to squeak when they are running down, so when you hear that squeak get em replaced, but if the rear's aren't squeaking just change the front and do the rears next time.

Good Luck
Hope this help
