    Beware Raybestos QS Ceramic Pads. I installed them and initially liked them
    better than original equipment. Van braked quicker and pads seemed to bite
    better. Unfortunitly they wore right down to the metal mounting plates with
    only 10,000 miles on them. I usually get about 50K for a set of pads on any
    vehicle. I saved the left-overs and wrote the company to see if they would
    do anything about it. Those pads were spensive!

    How were your calipers? I've had them with no issues whatever. Did you
    install with new rotors? Lots of variables here.

    that i use now are Wagner Thermal Quiet. i have them on my 97' g voyager with
