Performance Friction rear pads Ram 1500

I purchased my PFC pads from O'Reilly's. They showed the rear pad part number for my 07 Ram 1500 Quad Cab with the 5.7 Hemi as PFC part number as 1046.10 However, these pads are much shorter by just over one inch (the actual pad is shorter, the metal part is the same as my OEM). O'Reilly's seems confused, as am I....

Has any of you installed the PFC rear pads on a 3rd Gen Ram and if so did they match the OEM pads?? If so, any idea which PFC part was correct? I tried to contact PFC but I kept getting voice mails with no response (this is a holiday week).... The PFC website does not list a rear brake for this truck, only rear pads for the 2500/3500.

Second question: I have already installed the front PFC pads. If I cannot locate the proper PFC pads today, can I install another brand of brake pad on the rear with it causing any issues should I have an emergency stop. I tow a camper and the though of having rear pads that grab quicker or harder than the front pads seems like a possible issue??? The PFC pads are Carbon/Metallic...if I use another brand of pad which is a Semi-Metallic will they work well with my front PFC pads??

Thanks for your help! The Ram is up on blocks so I need to make a decision soon.

With most of the braking done by the front, I wouldn't be concern that the rear will grab first. If they do by some incredible chance, I'd buy a set for the front and hope they work as well as the rears. Then send me the part number so I can buy a set..... lol
IMO, the OEM replacement pads are the best...
