Akebono Brake Corporation has expanded its Ultra-Premium Disc Brake Pad line by four; three ProACT and one EURO part number. Premium stainless steel abutment hardware is included in the two ProACT kits that require it and the EURO kit includes electronic wear sensor.

“Today’s release included ProACT brake pads for several popular GM’s, Buick LaCrosse & Regal and the Chevrolet Malibu, as well as a couple front and rear Mazda applications. The award-winning EURO Line adds coverage for the popular, Mercedes-Benz CLA250 & GLA250,” said Edward Gerhardt, marketing and data service manager. “I am really glad to get these parts released in the month of August because of the popularity of the vehicles these parts fit. I expect we will start seeing field inventory build and replacement demand, very soon. I also wanted to take this time to talk about our full-line inclusion of abutment clip hardware.”
