Best brand brake pads for 2002 deville


Recommended Posts

Own a 2002 Deville with 94k on it. This car has been trouble free for me since I have owned it! So far just normal maintenance with only a couple minor part replacements.

Please share with me what brand of brake pads have given you the best overall performance. I will soon be changing my front brakes and would love to lock on to some great front pads. Thanks to all who respond.

I use duralast gold. I changed my fronts last march and just had them changed last week. I probably could have drove on em for another few more months but rotors were bad so I replaced the brakes along with them.

If this is your first brake pad change, on this car at 92k miles, it appears that OEM have done you very well; might consider putting in original parts back in.

ONLY OEM, they have been tested and validated for your car, you use something else and you do the validation and testing

Buy them at rockauto.com or gmotors.com

Thanks for the replys. I have changed pads a number of times over the years. i haven't been really displeased with NAPPA, OEM, etc. but was looking to find out if you folks had a line on a pad that has the least dust and squeal quality. Was considering EBC, Raybestos etc. Also thanks for the tips on where to buy pads. Would be happy for additional thoughts. Thank you againn to all who have replied so far.

There are two qualities of OEM, you can see them here

I do understand what you mean by wanting a less dusty pad, at some point I used a lifetime ceramic pad that kept my wheels cleaner but they were iffy when they were cold, and didnt begin to really grab until they were warmed up. That is what I mean, they are better in terms of dust, but there was a tradeoff..

Thanks for the info. This is a great site! I see Advance carries the AC Delcos. I'm going to check them out. Appreciate the help!

No problem let us know what you decide to do. By the way, the ceramics once they warmed up were great and the wheels were clean
