(on the rears it might not be too noticeable, but most say the initial bite is a bit reduced from OEM)
I've only noticed the squeak whens the cars dead cold (morning starts), but its not to say it doesn't do it during the middle of the day when the car is all cooled down I just haven't noticed it.

Break bight appears to be the same although it might just be because I've only done the rears.
