    I hate brakes....

    Back to the OP; having worked at AAP for a time, I can say assuredly that their "Ceramic" brakes (orange box) are absolute garbage. One of our guys had them on a 99 Ram 1500 and they lasted 4 months, no more than 5k miles before being worn to 25% and severely glazed. We had so many returns that...
