Nissan Frontier Xterra Brake Kit Front Nakamoto MD830, 40206-7Z000 - 1ABFS00027

Hearing squeaking noises from the wheels? This may be the wear tabs on the brake shoes saying, "it is time for replacement." Aging brakes can also result in a pulsation from the brake pedal or long stopping distances. Brakes should be inspected every 10,000 miles or any time the tires are removed. They may need frequent replacement such as every 20,000 miles if used in stop and go traffic. Brakes can last longer if the vehicle is used primarily for long highway trips.

Kit specifications:

  • Includes 2 front rotors & a front brake pad set
  • Fits Driver & Passenger Side Front
  • Rotors with 6 lug holes
  • Semi-Metallic brake pads
  • Direct replacements

This front brake pad & rotor kit makes a great replacement and has an excellent value over the price of dealer brake pads & rotors.

Premium Positive Molded Brake Pads Features and Benefits:

  • The very same manufacturing process the original equipment manufacturers use
  • High density friction material for long pad life
  • Less resin content virtually eliminates brake fade and glazing
  • Reduced dusting for both Ceramic and Semi-metallic materials
  • Quality multi-layered shims and pad chamfering provide smooth and quiet braking

Exact fit and great quality
Bought for my 2003 Nissan Xterra SE 4X4 and they were all exact fit. I also love the quality that I received at an unbeatable price. Just an fyi, this set does not include the clips for the brake pads, which was okay for me until I broke one of the old ones I was reinstalling. Still 5 stars regardless. Also the last pads I had a shop put on for convenience hardly compare to these. Within a week of cleaning the wheels the old pads would dust considerably. I have had this set on for almost 2 weeks now and no dust. Remember to clean ALL of the oil coating off of the rotors. I forgot to spray brake cleaner in between the ribs in the middle and they smoked a little the first two days, just an fyi.
