This is the back side of three different types of front brake pads that are available for Dakotas. The top left is the bonded Stillen Metal Matrix pad, the center is a riveted aftermarket pad, and the top right is a riveted aftermarket pad. Notice that the one on the right doesn't have the tabs on the back-when you go to the parts store, this is the one you usually get the first time, but you can't use it. You must have the clips on the back of the pads, and because the rivets that hold them on are mushroomed, you can't swap the clips from the old to the new pad. This wasn't an issue with Stillen's pads, but it's information worth knowing.
