    Cost is based on how soon you want the vibration to return.

    Thanks, but most expensive is not always the best. There is always a cost to benefit ratio, I am sure someone will have a more practical suggestion.

    I hope so, but cheap parts are still just that- cheap parts. Do you have a NAPA dealer near you? Their premium line along with their better line of ceramic pads would probably do well and cost a lot less than OEM. No matter how much the cost is , proper installation also helps.
