well for one you bought ebay car parts so....

but cover the basics, apply some anti squeal grease or glue to the backs of the pads and make sure you replace the hardware clips and the slides are greased and move correctly.

ALWAYS grease all the brake parts (caliper bolts, pad ends, etc.) and are the pads you bought semi-metallic or ceramic? I'm almost 100% sure you need ceramic pads for ALL drilled/slotted rotors. They squeak if you don't use them.

you can put whatever pads you want on whatever rotors. any pads can squeak, some just more than others. metallic pads make more noise typically though.

That's what I meant, with metallics you're almost guaranteed to squeak though.

yea i have the same rotors on my car and i know some1 who's had the same ebay rotors for 5 years with no problem.Despite what some opinions istead of facts,if you do your reesearch,there are good car parts on ebay..Just grease everything up real nice and your problem will go away..Did u change all 4 rotors or do u have a GS/RS...if so it could just be ur rear brakes/drum
