That's because you have obviously never worked on an ABS system. If you actually owned a factory service manual you would/could actually learn why.

There are many paths in an ABS Valve body.The problem is that some valves are closed during normal operation and only open during a traction control event or an ABS event. Even though these valves are not open, any air trapped in these circuits are still getting compressed when you step on the brake pedal. Bleeding without a scan tool will not let this air out because it is backed up against a valve you aren't opening.
You're talking bleeding brakes in the context of total system disassembly, not routine maintenance. If you're to the point where you've pulled the valve body or pump or accumulator and air might be trapped in there, of course you better have a scan tool. That's heavy work. You implied you needed a scan tool for any brake bleeding which is patently untrue. Unless the system has been opened in the middle or leaked down to the point the reservoir is empty, there is no reason you need a scan tool to safely bleed brakes. Not every scenario is a worst case scenario! Did you use to bench bleed your master cylinder when flushing your brake fluid too?

LOL...if you replace ANY component in your brake system, you have to bleed your brakes and need the scan tool to assure all the air is out. That is what bleeding does.

If you are talking about flushing a brake system and there isn't already any air there, in theory, you will get 99% of the fluid flushed with a small percentage staying in your expensive ABS valve body. Why you would do a flush and leave dirty fluid in the most expensive part in your entire brake system kind of baffles me though.

Glad you finally agree with me.

I was going to get these from Advance Auto however I found the same pads at Amazon for like half the price of Advance. The Amazon price included free shipping.

I have a question. I have a 1998 Camry I4 and it seems both QC562 and QC707 would fit. Which one is better or it doesn't matter?

I don't know if its my driving or these pads, but these seem to wear out rather quickly compared to previous ones. Anyone have similar experience with these wagner brake pads?
Are you sure you don't have Wagner QuickStop's? The QS is their value line, the ThermoQuiet is their premium line. TQ's are excellent pads.


Quote from droiddeals View Post :
I am due for new pads, what is considered the best? Amazon seems to point to "Akebono". This would be for a 99 Camry. I believe its a front wheel drive, so only the front need pads?
Akebono is OEM for many Toyota cars and a VERY good pads. I use them on our Ponitac Vibe (aka Toyota Matrix) with Wagner rotors, excellent combination.


Quote from rock91306 View Post :
This might be a stupid question, but is this one brake pad each, or the pair?
Pads are (99% of the time) priced per axle.


Quote from RavenSEAL View Post :
Are these any good? Looking at the unit for an 04 Camry, they would be 15 AR.
I would personally run Akebono's on a Camry as they are the OEM for that car, but the Wagner's are still excellent pads.


Quote from br0theralex View Post :
The best pads are the super expensive (your car's make) "dealer pads". Just remember to have the rotors cut or replace the rotors/drums, otherwise the pads make noise and wear out fast. If the rotors arent cut by the right person, they will make noise or vibrate.
Wagner has always made great brake parts. Bosch makes everything great!
Nothing in that statement is true. The best pads are dependent on your driving style and other factors. IE, Akebono is the OEM for many Toyota's. Why would I pay 2x the price at the dealer for Pontiac\Toyota pads when I can get the same thing in the original manufactures box for half? I also wouldn't use OEM pads on my Wrangler, for example. That get's nothing but EBC pads. I'm willing to sacrifice lifespan for stopping power. It didn't come from the factory ~600lb heavier than it is now, turning 37" tires with a Ford disc brake axle in the rear... If it's a daily driver, yes, dealer (or whoever made them for the manufacture) are fine.

And no, rotors don't have to be turned or replaced every time you pad swap. As long as you bed them properly, there will be no issues.


Quote from psin2005 View Post :
What exactly does lifetime warranty mean with brake pads? After they wear down you get another pair?
Depends on in what context you're talking about. Some chains offer lifetime brakes. These deals generally use the cheapest pads they can get and you get free pads / shoes for the life of the vehicle, but you're usually paying 60+ in labor every time you take it back.

Lifetime warranty on some pads only covers manufactures defects. Lifetime warranty on other pads, most notably parts-store brand pads means you get one free set. If you were to simply buy a quality part in the first place (like these Wagner's), you wouldn't need a lifetime warranty. A quote from Tommy boy couldn't be more true;

Quote :
Tommy: Let's think about this for a sec, Ted. Why would somebody put a guarantee on a box? Hmmm, very interesting.
Ted Nelson, Customer: Go on, I'm listening.
Tommy: Here's the way I see it, Ted. Guy puts a fancy guarantee on a box 'cause he wants you to feel all warm and toasty inside.
Ted Nelson, Customer: Yeah, makes a man feel good.
Tommy: 'Course it does. Why shouldn't it? Ya figure you put that little box under your pillow at night, the Guarantee Fairy might come by and leave a quarter, am I right, Ted?
[chuckles until he sees that Ted is not laughing]
Ted Nelson, Customer: [impatiently] What's your point?
Tommy: The point is, how do you know the fairy isn't a crazy glue sniffer? "Building model airplanes" says the little fairy; well, we're not buying it. He sneaks into your house once, that's all it takes. The next thing you know, there's money missing off the dresser, and your daughter's knocked up. I seen it a hundred times.
Ted Nelson, Customer: But why do they put a guarantee on the box?
Tommy: Because they know all they sold ya was a guaranteed piece of shit. That's all it is, isn't it? Hey, if you want me to take a dump in a box and mark it guaranteed, I will. I got spare time. But for now, for your customer's sake, for your daughter's sake, ya might wanna think about buying a quality product from me.
Ted Nelson, Customer: [pause] Okay, I'll buy from you.

i just use rockauto.com
Quote from HunterOne View Post :
You can get them cheaper at RockAuto.com by around $5-$7 per axle. The rebate is valid there too.
Rebate is valid only on the ThermoQuiet line, not on the QuickStop or SevereDuty lines.
Use the 5% Discount Code, 710F1AC6FB23 thet expires on 03/24/2013. Enter this code in the 'How Did You Hear about Us' box to receive discount.
You may save on tax also if Amazon charges tax in your state and RockAuto does not.
Damn, I should have waited to order the new pads and rotors from RA last week, 5% discount would have been nice!


Quote from HunterOne View Post :
Even with the shipping fee and using the 5% discount my price, with NO TAX, it was almost $5 cheaper than Amazon, where I would pay tax, for both axles' pads.

Each case may be different depending on your tax situation as I originally stated.
Quote from PhxSunsFan View Post :
Super hard to beat Amazon Prime shipping tho! For $5 bucks difference in price I'd go all day long with Amazon cause of next day delivery! woot
Quote from jbrown View Post :
This is the same rebate that is listed on Rockauto...minus the professional installation option. they're the best IMHO as far as purchasing automotive parts. Fast shipping and cheap prices.
Quote from munboy View Post :
Rockauto has tax and shipping amazon has neither I'm not sure why there is a comparison..Confused3
For me, Rock Auto wins most of the time, I've probably spent 2k with them in the last 12 months. They have Wagner rotors for the Vibe for $25. Amazon is $39 w\ Prime (an no stock, at that). I saved $25 even after paying shipping by getting two rotors and a set of pads from RA. If it was pads alone, it would have been a wash, I would have gone with Amazon since I can get FuelPerks from Amazon GC's plus CB.

Shipping depends on what warehouse the parts come out of and where you live. I ordered my stuff last Friday morning, it showed up via FedEx Saturday afternoon, ~30 hours after I placed the order. Amazon wouldn't have had them here (if they had stock) until Monday. No tax on Amazon or RA for me.


Quote from purecash123 View Post :
Also, just read the fine print:
"Maximum product rebate is $30 ($15 front set and/or $15 rear set)."

So in my case I only have the front pads that qualify, and no eligible rear items. So I am guessing my rebate would only be $15?

This isn't turning out to be the deal that I imagined..
No guessing needed, yes, you're going to get a ~$35 set of pads for $20 that will outlast just about anything you can buy. Seems like a deal to me...

I got 286,000 miles on my 2005 Prius and have yet to replace the rear brakes and replaced the front at 125,000 miles. Should I replace all now? Anyone put these in a Prius?
You can thank regenerative braking for the ultra-long brake life. The front brakes on most cars are responsible for 70%+ of the braking. At 286k I would at least have the rear shoes looked at, but don't replace them if they don't need it. Brakes don't degrade in performance through wear. If there is still shoe or pad material left and it's within spec, leave it be until they actually need replaced.

Alright.

Btw I see you mentioned in earlier posts that some of the Camrys run Akebonos as OEM.

Would you know what a Toyota Echo '00 would be stocked with?

I really don't know. I would suspect Akebono as Toyota really likes them, but that is a complete wild ass guess. As long as you go with a quality set of pads (and rotors if you need them), you will be set. Don't forget how many people out there are running Wearever, Prostop or other bargin basement brands. The car may not stop as well and the lifespan almost certainly won't be as long, but they aren't exactly rolling death traps.

FWIW, my rotors only ever see 2 pad changes. After learning of Rock Auto years ago, I primarily only buy from them. After spending $60+ on quality pads, then finding RA and knowing that I can get brand new quality rotors (I primarily stick with Wagner rotors) as well as a good set of pads for less than $100 to my door, it's worth it to me to just replace them. No dealing with possible runout, no toting my rotors to NAPA or wherever to get them turned. Just slap the new ones on.

Also, for everyone doing brake jobs, use a torque wrench on the wheels. Improper torque on the wheels is one of the #1 causes for a "warped rotor" feeling (which really isn't warped, it's likely improper torque or vertical runout).
