Pads are the same. Difference is the hub bearing and rotor. the offset on the rotor is different. Most guys that need hub bearings go with the 99.5 and newer b/c they are cheaper. But when you do this you need to buy rotors for the late model style as well.

ADVANCED AUTO BRAKES

Man, i changed out my rotors & pads from advanced auto. all went well on the drivers side. Now the passanger side i had problems. Once i had the rotors & brads re-installed. i couldn't turn the tire very easly. it seemed that. it was right up against that whole brake assembly. I took it off and did the drivers side. no problem at all on that side, And before i did that i compared the rotors. no diff. Tried again, same thing. I just rolled it like that after scratching my head for about an hour. now it just has a groove where it was rubbing. but my brakes are find. I tested them out right after thoroughly. ANd where i drive they get tested on a dailey bases. I'm still cofused about that.

So, if I need wheel bearings down the road (and I will) I can just use the 99.5 ones and buy 99.5 rotors? everything else is the same??

Correct . . . Just order front wheel hub bearings and rotors for a 2001 to avoid confusion to the parts store employee

It usually costs in between $450 and $500 for rotors, pads and hub bearings.
