Diff between front inner/outer brake pad?

Hi all,

Is there a difference between the inner/outer front brake pad?

Not in this case.

Only time you would see a difference is on some cars there is a spring type of clamp that holds the pads in place on the caliper.

NAPA's Adaptive One brake pads use asymetric design, where supposedly the outer pad material is of ceramic type and the inner one is semi-metallic type. These are considered very good brake pads.

This is my first time and I wanna get it right.

Is there any special requirement about the position of the two springs on top of the brake pad. I did some research on online videos and only see people simply put the pad and then cover with caliper. No special alignment(i.e. spring should be placed into a dent?) has been found.

Any comment?

No alignment/adjustment required.

The inner pad will wear faster than the outer-pad. This is normal.
Use a C clamp or such to push the caliper back into the housing
when installing them
