Just replaced mine last week with an Akebono Proact, seems to be fine....Getting ready to change my front brakes today and can?t decide between these two brake pads. I purchased them both (they will get used eventually)... any experience with the akebono proact vs stock?
It should not vibrate. Did you put in new rotors? Did you wash the coating off the rotors? Did you bed the brakes in ?Changed them yesterday and selected the Akebono. Followed the standard procedures (clean everything thoroughly, grease the pins, guide and shims, and reassemble) took a drive to seat the new pads and rotors stopping firmly a few times. This morning driving to church, I would get to a stop sign and the brakes would hum a little and vibrate. It this keeps up, they will go back to the store. Anyone know if this is just the brakes seating ? I can also tell you that the akebono require much more pedal pressure to come to a stop compared to adivics oem.
