Saturn Brake Kit Front Nakamoto MD507, 5581 - 1ABFS00033

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 4 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
