    Default EBAY Brakes

    I don't know if anyone has ever done a post on EBAY brakes but here is my experience with them . I bought some 2 years ago for my sons 2001 Grand Prix and got all 4 rotors and pads for around 110 . I had to change them yesterday but they only had about 7500 miles on them , now I don't know how my son drives maybe he holds his foot on the brakes but not much left of the pads .
    I also put some EBAY brakes on the front of my XJ 2 years ago and since then it has very little braking power , I checked them while putting on my fender flares and they need to be changed with maybe 10000 miles on them .
    I attached pictures of the rear brakes and will get some of the fronts from the Grand Prix. I guess the saying is true you get what you pay for .

    I've almost cheaped out on Ebay brakes and decided to just go though rock auto and pick up some decent ones for lowish money. Thanks for posting your review.

    Most pads and shoes from autozone have a lifetime warranty.
    I haven't paid for brakes on my ranger in 17 years. Best 32 dollars I ever spent.
    One more part and I'll have a new Jeep

    Just replaced the junk ebay brakes with some EBC pads and rotors , wow what a difference . The only bad thing was these were very difficult to get on , seems they are a little longer then stock and so thick I couldn't use the shims , I even went online to make sure I had the right stock number but just had to use a hammer and so far no noise and stopping power is incredible .

    I put the EBC pads and roters on my F250 and my wife Sonata in December. They stopped well, for sure! The only issue I had is they only lasted 5 months. I had to change to change the F250's out because they were completely gone, and the Sonata was almost in the same condition.

    That is good to know. My experience with brake pads and shoes is that if they stop real well, they wear out quickly. The high milage pads are so hard they have to be warmed up to stop well
