Cant beat the price
I installed these brakes around 2 weeks ago, they have worked great so far, no squeeking, noises etc. You cant beat the price, and i looked around a lot. They shipped fast and got to me fast too, the box they shipped in was packaged well and came undamaged. having the video to reference for my car was a nice bonus too. (2003 civic)

I only wish that they included the brake clips with the package, a minor inconvenience but overall i am 100% satisfied with the product.

Great product, great price
Ordered these for my 2005 Honda Civic after the shop quoted $300 to replace the front pads and rotors. For $67, this kit did the trick and saved us over $200. We've been driving on them for two weeks now, and everything seems fine.

Rotors and pads
It is always very easy and fast when ordering from 1A AUTO. I have been using there parts for several years now and have not had any issues with anything that I have purchased. I recently received the rotors and pads for my daughters car and had them changed in less that one hour. They have some of the best prices on the market and have free shipping. I would recommend not only the brake parts but also other items they sell. Very pleased with what I have purchased from them in the past.
