Yes and no. Pretty much all the aftermarket friction material is softer (as it should be), but all the aftermarket shoes seem to use the same defective castings that don't fit right. They can be cleaned up with a file to work, but for the amount of trouble involved it's probably easier to just have your oem shoes fitted with new pad material.
