i would recommend going with the 95-99 maxima pads from auto zone. much better the the hawk pads. they dont squeek at all. and they are about 45 buck. (carbon metalic i think)
Will these work on the 2.5's also? I looked at the autozone website and I think I found the ones you are talking about, PFC carbon metallic (36.99) part # 5264.

Bro, there is no Altima specific method to changing the brake pads. . it is done the same way as on most vehicles today. If you have no experience in changing brake pads whatsoever, then Desi's suggestion to search on Google was right on, theres nothing Altima specific about the process like I said so. .

May I suggest going to Ebay and buying the electronic service manual for the altima for 10 bucks. That will give you step by step with some pics

You need some help, PM me and we'll talk. I just did mine and was going to do a write up with pics, but forgot to take my camera with me and didn't write down the tool sizes necessary.

I think my brake pads need replacement too and thinking of doing it myself, but then I have ABS... is the DIY different with ABS?

My wife's ride is somewhere around 36k (2.5S 5spd). She hasn't mentioned anything about stopping performance, but the fact that she now has to pull the parking brake somewhere between 50 - 75 degrees for it to not roll down an decline in netural. Is this pad or does the parking brake need adjustment?

The parking brake is a seperate mechanism inside the rear rotor hub which uses its own brake shoes (not pads).

The best way to determine pad life is to measure the amount of pad remaining.

They need to be replaced at 2mm front, 1.5mm rear.

Adjusting the parking brake will solve your problem (10mm socket w/extension, adjust below the brake handle).
