Brake pad clips for Honda Accord 2008
Am I missing something? Searching with wrong keyword or clips are not popular thing to replace with every brake job? I currently have squeaking problem so I don't want to take my chances with old clips.

That's because people actually believe the Akebono they buy online for $60 are the same as the Akebono that came on the assembly line. Like the Brembo thread where people think they're getting the same OEM Brembo at Canadian Tire. Personally, the manufacturers are taking advantage of the perceived quality the name brings so they highlight it in the aftermarket. In reality these are not anywhere near the quality of the assembly line brakes and will probably get you less than 1/2 the life. The compound is totally different. Not really surprised some don't come with hardware, it could also be a store return where someone kept the hardware.

Thanks for your input. I will look for one that comes with hardware, most likely Centric Psi-Quiet Ceramic - it has decent reviews. I initially wanted to buy (rotors and brakes) from rockautos but shipping is crazy expensive for rotors.derass wrote: ↑Nov 16th, 2018 5:09 pmThat ridiculous. Akebono are the most expensive aftermarket pads, because they have this internet reputation of being the best. But they don't include shims. Meanwhile Centric Psi-Quiet Ceramic, which I would argue are also premium aftermarket, are $38 and include the shims.
I just checked online and the OEM shims are $6-10 EACH. There are aftermarket sets on Rockauto ranging from $3-10.
You should be able to find these at any local parts store as well.
Just be careful what you buy. You're cherry picking the pads, but cheap, poor quality shims will rust out and seize up the pads in no time.

Maybe it's a bit expensive, but they are quite heavy.
