Re: Need some brake help, please...

Picked up this info back at my days at Firestone and Napa. The standards OEM has for brake equipment is not the same as the Aftermarket. Aftermarket always tries to compete by using different materials, HD applications (thicker) and other things as bonded is better than rivets.

I would just focus on 2 factors, your calipers may have rust on the pistons and now that is pushed to far in past the seals. This happens from running the pads thin all the time.

The pads you have are an HD, Severe Duty rating and are simply thicker.
