What happend to my brake pads?

I have changed my brake pads before and the first time went well with no problems, but now I had to change my brakes a few weeks ago and when did the design of the pads change. I doubled check online from Autozone and PartsAmerica (Kregan,Checker) and they all have the same pads, but it doesn't fit my calipers. So I took my old pads back to compare design. The closest pads I can find were from a 2003 Ranger but my truck is a 1993 Ranger. So can anyone tell my what happened in between the 2 years that changed my brakes? BTW, my brakes is half old pad and half new 2003 ranger pads, just to make it kind of work.

Re: What happend to my brake pads?

Aftermarket includes hundreds of online stores as well to shop from. I know it's easier to go into a store and compare pads, but don't get something that 'looks close' to OE design. I've never had a problem finding pads, even up to a few years ago when I still had my '85 K car. I'd ask at the auto parts store if you should replace the calipers, and if the new calipers will fit the new pads.
