picked up front brake pads from lexus, i took of the old pads and it wasnt oem, it had a shimmy but the shimmy didnt fit on the oem pads i picked up... the shimmys about 60 bucks from lexus, was wondering if i can install the pads without shimmys? what would happen without the shimmy? sounds like a bad idea to do it but just wonder what would happen?

you hear noises and get some braking vibrations not to mention the pad shifting sounds from forward to reverse.

I'm running my front pads with no shims just alot of brake grease. Absolutely no noise, this is common and some Toyota dealers in Australia and New Zealand don't bother with them.

That said, I am running the Supra BBK, bigger pads & rotors etc... so there may be a difference.
