      Had "Bendix" brake pads installed today (all four wheels). A co-worker asked me if I received pads that are riveted or glued; he informed me these are the methods of pad attachment to the backing assembly.

      Question: Anyone out there know the answer to this question??

      It all depends on the manufacturer of the pad. usually the cheaper pads are bonded and the more expensive are riveted. I have had good luck with both types.

      I prefer the bonded over the riveted. If you let the rivited pads wear down too much, the rivets will come in contact with the rotor and scar it. Depending on how far you let it go, it can mean having to replace the rotors. There's a little more room for error with the bonded pads.
