Surprisingly Good Brakes!
I had purchased some fancy drilled rotor brakes that didn't last a year. Decided to buy cheap, as long as I was going to have to replace them soon anyhow. When I found 1A, I was shocked at the low price. I tried them out, and they were the best brakes I ever put on my Explorer. They lasted twice as long as I expected. So I bought them again. Great service, fast free shipping and no hassles. Highly recommend this company.
