So what Scott?  This is part of your problem, you think that you know
EVERYTHING, yet that is FAR from the truth  You also claim to be on the
mother list from almost day one and we know that you popped up in 1992 after
you got a computer for Christmas...

Your arguing that people should know everything about every mod they put on
their car, He wants stouter brakes, the vendor he went with suggested this
set up to him, he trust's their judgment, your crucifying him because of
that. You really need to get off your high horse, you have been know to make
bad suggestions but everyone is supposed to overlook that because you if
they don't you beat the subject into submission (Not that you get it
correct, you just go for the volume method)

ECS sold him the brakes and pads, I have news for you Scott, Textars will
squeal, ALL Pads can squeal. He is unhappy that the pad choice that he has
squeals, that doesn't make him wrong.
