Default Raybestos brake pads

Went to autozone to pick up a set for the front. I asked for ceramic and they handed me a bland looking box...damn Canadian made stuff.

Anyway they take it to the checkin for me to buy and I asked, "Are all Raybestos ceramic pads?" They guy behind the counter said, "Yes."

HUH??? I sure hope I got ceramics! They say nothing about being ceramic on the box except "Raybestos -- PG PLUS: Professional Grade Asbestos Free"

The pads themselves look pretty darn metallic though, still are all Raybestos ceramic?

Ok...after fighting with the people at Autozone I got the right ones. Quiet Stops. Now I just gotta spend money on rear brakes (shot).
