    Donít know if anyone mentioned it but take note on all the socket sizes you need before you start, the axle nut that needs to be removed is a 31mm socket and that axle nut can be a huge c**t to get off.

    the axle nut doesn't need to be removed to take off the brakes... what are you talking about?!

    I'm never ever gonna buy from them again. If you have an issue with an item you bought from them, they'll make you wait months, and will piss you off by transferring you to different "Customer Service" representatives where they'll be asking the same exact questions that the other representatives have already asked.

    Just hope that you wont have issues with what you've purchased.

    I was looking for a bit of time and here's what I found.

    CarQuest has a decent set of OEM replacements approx $540 taxes in

    Tony from 401 Dixie, direct OEM replacements $490 taxes in (with TM3's discount) What I did notice though, the front pads=Japan , the Rears=China.

    Only thing is, because in the past Ford and Mazda were in bed together all the parts are labeled with FoMoCo.

    Not sure if you take the item No. and see if you can get a better deal at your local Ford dealer?

    Parts that you buy from the Mazda dealers are OE parts, not OEM. OEM parts are Ate, Akebono, Bosch, Brembo, Denso, Hengst, Hitachi, Mann, NGK etc.
    Only OE parts are installed in the car production line. OE parts are designed and mfred by the OEM Co.

    CT, NAPA etc. sell both AM-After Market and OEM, but not OE parts.

    Yea I realized that after, I hit the brakes to get them off with a rubber mallet and they didnít budge so I though that they were held on with the nut but turns out i just had to give it another few smacks lol.

    I havenít had any problems yet with them :/ Iíve got an ac condenser/ new rad and an HID kit along with my brakes. Iíve never had to return anything but all refunds during the shipping process were handled good.
