OR just remove them from the caliber and zip tie them to the abs sensor, so you don't get a warning.

The pads do squeal also. reversing and stopping does seem to cure this for a bit, but it comes back. Cool carbon pads have a great rep here... but they are rediculously expensive... i'm sure there's other brands that will work well. AND goo up the pads with brake quiet when installing them... the dealer doesn't do this. it can be vibration and/or brake dust.
Cool Carbon pads are actually very reasonably priced, less than OEM pads, and considering what they deliver in performance they are tough to beat for overall value. We run them on a number of our own cars here at EAS and are very pleased.
