Of the 4 pads:
- Two had huge divots in the ceramic
- One was split and missing half the metal backplate
- One was pristine
The car had squealed since I got it back from the shop. He and 2 other, independent mechanics swore it was normal and would go away.
Related: The last people who put my front tires on were Les Schwab, after I blew out a tire hitting a pot hole. Apparently they used an impact wrench to tighten the lugnuts.
I had to jump up and down on my tire iron to get them to break free. So glad I did this in my garage and not, say, on the side of the highway changing a flat...
