Not that I know of, but you can get them from autozone or pep boys, or advance...

believe it or not, NAPA isnt to prevalent around here! I'm from NY and they wre all over up there. I do have an advance clsoe to me. I need them today so i can change em out tonight. I called and they said it was only like 30 some odd dollars for a pair of Raybestos queit stop? that doesnt sound right does it??? They're 60-70 everywhere else!

One mroe question: Is it entirely neccessary to loosen or remove the caliper bolts to change the pads? Midas Muffler stripped one of my caliper threaded holes a few years back and i had to have the dealer Helicore it. I dont know how well a helicore will hold up to more abuse so i would rather not even mess with it.

How else are you going to get the caliper off? You cant get the rotor off with the caliper on.... And you can't get the caliper off when it'* bolted down.


Are the Raybestos Ceramic?

The Helicoil if properly installed should be trouble free, and you need to remove the caliper to replace the pads.
