I just ordered a set of EBC Red Stuff and try to book a date with my mechanic to install, he said to make sure they come with brake wear sensors??

If your light isnt on for pads. You can save them if you dont break them when you take them out.

I have EBC greens, and for almost 2 months it was embarrassing to come to a stop... really BAD squealing

I did rears first, no issues.

Front pads is what made my car sound like an angry piglet.

No, just the pads.... They are fine now, but I honestly almost took them off and went back to OEM...... (no idea if that would have helped)

yeah new rotors would be better! The new pads aren't making contact like a new rotor. If you don't have the cash well thats another topic. Rotors and Pads are the best way to go.
