I can't remember exactly. There was a set of how to bed in your junx
instructions online. Might have been Ferodo literature, but it could
have been some other pad. I'm betting it was a Hawk document or maybe
Porterfield. I read it, it made sense at the time, so I did it, but I
don't remember the details.
Yeah, the squeal is there, and it'll stay there, but when I get annoyed
with it I just wait to brake a little later. More pedal yields less
noise. What can I say? They're super hard and durable pads. They're
gonna vibrate a little if you're not pooshing them.
