Any recommendations for Toyota Camry LE 4cl. (2002) as the ones linked in this thread don't fit. This one here is not the same price http://www.amazon.com/Wagner-QC90...B001O0TZBU though it does fit according to Amazon. Also, do I have to purchase 2 different sets (ie: worth $71 in this particular case) or do they come in packs of 4 to cover the Front axle?
you need one box for your fronts

You need to enter in what trim package (LS, LSE, etc) and then select if it has rear drum brakes or disc brakes then their part finder will narrow it down for you. You can also click on each part and it will tell you exactly what they fit. Looks like QC580's are rear disc pads. The other 2 are fronts but you need to plug in the other info to determine which set to buy.
I did and still got 2 options,both look same

Anyone have success getting the rebate on brake shoes?
Found ThermoQuiet shoes for the rear drum brakes on my car, but the rebate says "Pads".

When I ordered I got two as well. There are two, you should click on the compatibility chart. For mine it was an Acura RSX, but amazon only has "RSX" under their list, so it was either the Base Model or Type-S Brakes.

According to Advance Auto Parts website, the QC914 will fit the LX-P nod

A few things to keep in mind:

1. As someone said above your tires are more important than your brake pads. Get the stickiest tires you can afford. Look at tirerack dot com for tire tests/reviews/g-ratings. The most expensive tires are not always the best.

2. The Wagner brake pads mentioned here as well as their Monroe counterparts are excellent pads and no street car needs anything more expensive. If you do track or racing then things change...
Both Wagner and Monroe run these almost free disc brake pad rebates.
Like tires above the most expensive disc brake pads are not always the best. As a matter of fact some of the most expensive disc brake pads are pretty aggressive on the rotors.

3. Ceramic pads are less dust prone and quieter than simi-metallic ones and a bit easier on the rotors.
But both will do an excellent job.

4. You do not need to turn your rotors every time you change pads. It is not necessary and it just makes your rotors thinner and weaker. If you change your pads before they start scrapping the rotors there is no need for rotor work. Change brake pads when they are less than 30% of their original thickness. They should definitely be changed if their thickness is 1/8" or less, about 3.2mm. Do not wait until the scrapping/squealing noises start. Disc brake pads have wear indicators, a piece of metal attached to the disc pad, that are supposed to emit a squealing noise when the brake pad wears down to 2.5mm, or 1/10", at which time the pad wear metal plate and the rotor disc rub against each other. Standard brake pads are 10mm or 4/10" thick.
If there are traces of the pad wear indicator contacting the rotor disc, the brake pads should be replaced but you should not wait to see these traces.
Also check the rotors often for signs of trouble such as groves and bumps.
There may be only one pad wear indicator per wheel and it may be attached to the inner pad which is the pad that gets the most pressure from the caliper and is the one that wears the fastest.
But usually each pad will have its own wear indicator.

Now make sure that you go to a honest mechanic because the metal plate squeal indicators are easily broken or bent, in which case you will not hear the low break pad squeal until it is too late and the rotors have been damaged. More $$$ for the mechanic to put new rotors next time.

In most annual state auto inspections your car will fail the safety inspection if the wear indicator has touched the rotor.
Many dishonest mechanics who do such inspections will tell you you need new brake pads even though the wear indicator is no where near the rotor and you may have several thousand miles of life left on the pads. They will fail your car trying to force you to an unnecessary break job. Just get your temporary inspection sticker and go elsewhere because in such situations "other defects" will surface and before you know it you'll be spending hundreds of $$$ on an unnecessary break job enriching a dishonest mechanic. And these people exist more often than you think.

If your driving style usually gets you, let's say, 40,000 miles out of a set of pads and you want to get the max life out of them and you do not like changing pads that may have another 10,000 miles of life left on them, then YOU can break the metal wear indicators. BUT, in that case you better be following/checking your break pads closely or you may damage your rotors if you let the pads wear down to the metal.
But if you usally get about 10,000-20,000 miles out of a set of pads you should leave things as they are.

I bought a set of ceramic Wagner Thermo-Quiet front pads for my Lexus LS400 with Brembo brakes and installed them myself (very easy). On just looking at the pads, they appeared to have a high copper content. Wagner said that shims and compound were not required. And they weren't. The pads function every bit as well as the OEM equipment. I'm very happy with them. They are silent and produce no visible dust.

I think you mistyped that - ceramics cause more rotor wear than semi-metallics. The pads last longer, but the rotors wear more. Most manufacturers do not recommend ceramics for cars not originally equipped with them.
You're right on that!

Cryo treated rotors and ceramic pads are a better match due to the enhanced durability of the cryogenic treatment of the rotors.
They cost about twice as much as the standard economy rotors but they last longer.
The Centric Premium Cryogenically Treated Rotors are just one example.
Cryo-Stop is another here:

This company makes both and more:

For most street cars sticking with the manufacturers OEM pads and rotors is enough.

Agreed, they just need to be resurfaced if they are in good condition and within allowable thickness.
Did your mommy ever told you that turning and resurfacing rotors is the same thing..? What a guy...

You seem confused :-)

Resurfacing and turning are different operations - resurfacing restores the crosshatching and allows the pads to seat properly, but since only a few thousands of material are removed, cannot fix a warped rotor.

Turning removes more metal and can flatten warped rotors, remove grooves in the rotor, etc. Turned rotors are also resurfaced after turning, again to provide the crosshatching needed to seat the pads properly.

decolres9: This thread really should only be 4 pages but you seemed to have added 5 more pages of just junk information. Just stop.
