Kris C from Mesa, AZ said, "Well I have had these for about 100 miles now... The install was very simple however the instructions did not specify what the 2 silver stickers were for... after placing them on my tool box and a few days of research I discovered that they were suppose to be placed on the outside of the pad as an anti squeal guard. Needless to say for the first few days they squealed like no tomorrow. Last weekend I went to my local auto parts store and picked up some brake lube and tore the brakes apart again. I placed the lube on all of the metal to metal contact points minus the face of the pad and the squeal has completely disappeared. The braking power is un-believable and after reading more into the EBC bedding period you MUST drive them for 200 miles easy on the braking power and then bed them in... I discovered this after doing several 80-5 mph stops and glazing them over... Oh wellHope this helps anyone looking at getting these."
