After the bad words about Repco pads that I've seen on this list I have
to ask: Are you attributing the squeal to Repco pads or are you
recommending Repcos to stop the squeal?  I started using Repcos many
years ago because they had a reputation for not squealing.  I think
Repco guarantees no squeal if installed on new or freshly turned rotors.
I've been happy with my Repcos with my relatively sedate driving.  This
list has been bursting my bubbles of confidence on so many things I've
been pleased with I'm beginning to think I don't know s**t.  Not to say
the list hasn't been a good source of info, I've learned more than I
