Ok guys, I'm about to throw these damn things in the trash and talk @#%$ about Wilwood until the day I die!

I have tried 3 different Wilwood pads @ $50 a set and all of them squeek!
I have used endless amounts of STOP SQUEEK.
I have shimmed the rotors to perfection.

Does anyone have any experience with the infamous Wilwood issue??

BTW, they stop great! :Alchy:

I've used now-discontinued Polymatrix D and old tan pads on my street car. Never had squeek problem. My boss runs Polymatrix E's on his Chevy. No squeek either.

Which pads did you use? Did you follow their pad bed-in procedure? How about smearing some anti-squeek thing on caliper wear plates (assuming you have newer style calipers)?
