Front pads needed some rubber mallet encouragement. I think there was a lip. The back side would not fit at all. They didn't cost much so it's not worth returning and back pads worked great. I really need something in this car as one pad is scrapping so ill just use the ok worn down pad for now until I get an OEM pair.
I'm curios though, is turning down a pad a bad idea? Could only imagine the pad would not be level and not make full contact. Plus there may be some uneven girding on there. Or would the brakes eventually ware down correctly?
I have to say, other then this fitting issue, this has been the most pleasant brake job I have ever done.
