Raybestos Quit-Stop on PowerSlot rotors on my 93. Junk on my 95. Neither squeak.

Did you goop the back of the pads?

I belive mine are just Wagners. Cheaper price, quiet, cant complain. However for ultimate stopping power, grab up some power slot rotors and ceramic pads

I bought the cheapies from autozone for the 95. I paid $10.00 for the front pads. Mine is going to need new rotors after the winter. I just put these pads on to get it by NYSI. They actually stop quite well. If you looking for a real decent brake pad then go with the ceramic pads. I have them on the Legend, and have no complaints at all. Hardly no brake dust at all from them.

Carquest ceramics and stock rotors. They're quiet but warped the rotors after a year. I'm not going to buy $90 rotors when i can replace them every year for $16.

Bendix Ceramics on stock rotors. No noise, very low dust and no warpage. ps..no anti squeak on backs..they have the shims built in.

Very happy.

Squeaks can be caused from pad compositiion and glazing etc. Try doing a day or so of harder than usual stops. Abuse them a little and see if they don't clean up on their own.

Default pads

Performance friction carbon metallics on the 90 - Awsome, no noise, stop well, no longer eats pads and rotors.
Carquest / Raybestos on the 96 (came with) still working great after 3 yrs. No noise, no warping, great stopping power. The rear brakes on this car seem to never need replacing.
