Without having the pads in front of me, it's hard to know if this is the case or not. I know I tried putting the wrong pad in the wrong position and couldn't do it until a tech straightened me out. :Oops:
The shap of the linings should be somewhat sei-cricular with the smaller radius to the hub. The tab I refer to is part of the metal backing and is on top. The offset can be seen on the caliper as to why they are different. NOTE: This may not be your case. I just remeber they were gm pads I had trouble with.
You may have the wrong rotor also? For fun :roll:, throw the old rotor on and see if they fit. ( I know it will be thinner and may accidentially work, but this is for fun :).
Match up the old pads and rotors VERY carefully and see if there is any difference.
The rotor has to turn freely.
What brand and part numbers do you have?
