Akebono Brake Corp. has expanded its ProAct ultra-premium disc brake pad line by four part numbers. Premium 301 stainless steel abutment hardware is included in the three kits that require it.

The expansion increases coverage by more than 2.5 million vehicles.

The release includes ProAct brake pads for the Buick Envision, Honda CR-V, Hyundai Santa Fe and Santa Fe XL, as well as the Kia Sorento and Soul. 

“All four of these parts add significant late-model coverage to our line at a time that most will soon be approaching their first brake service,” says Edward Gerhardt, marketing and data service manager.
