RE: RE: Help! Brake Dust

I'd love to do that, but there aren't any aftermarket pads for the UFO
brakes that I have up front, so I'm going with stock pads (at least I
haven't been able to find any - tried Porterfield, AVS, Ned etc.). Makes
it all the more attractive to talk to AVS about that $1500 or so
conversion to regular brakes. Not the "or so" - Max at AVS couldn't
quite remember the figure, but it does include crossdrilled rotors and
aftermarket performance pads.

Hey there,
   I have DONE the real solution!!!!   It was a bit pricey, but worth
bucks.   Overall, I paid $170 for the front and rear FrictionTech pads
TAP and then paid another $175 dollars to turn all 4 rotors (which did
the squeaking....Thanks everybody!) and install the pads. Total there,
you non-addition minded listers was $345.  I have put about 500 miles on
car since, and the wheels are still decently clean.  Pedal feel is a bit
firmer, taking a bit more effort to slow the car.  This I think is a
trade off.
