Tired of Chinese brake pads.

The wife's 2008 Nissan Altima needed new front brake pads. I started looking at all the obvious place, local NAPA, AutoZone, Orielly and such. Every single one of them had Chinese brake pads, even their premium line are Chinese. I then got online and searched for alternatives to Chinese brake pads. I ran across another forum and a discussion on Chinese brake pads. One post mentioned a company named Akebono. Turns out Akebono is an OEM supplier of brake pads and shoes to just about all the auto makers. Found a site that handles Akebono brake pads and shoes Auto Parts Warehouse | Car Parts & Accessories, Truck Parts, Discount Auto Body Parts Online and Akebone pads are made in the USA. Ordered a set last week and got them a few minutes ago
