    First grammer check-it's ls1.com i'm going to haze you a bit
    Second we need the brand of pads that you got
    Brand like HP Plus is more aggresive and will squeek(why you need to specify brand).
    Also did you follow the correct brake in procedure?

    No name on the box? Depends on the pad this goes for the hps
    Burnishing Instructions

    After installing new brake pads, make 6 to 10 stops from approximately 30-35 mph applying moderate pressure.
    Make an additional 2 to 3 hard stops from approximately 40 to 45 mph.
    DO NOT DRAG BRAKES!
    Allow 15 minutes for brake system to cool down.
    After step 4 your new pads are ready for use

    You are suppposed to do it at the start so I don't know. again brand?

    The ceramic pads you get from chinazone arent too bad. Did you clean and lube the caliper pins befor you instaled them? You can pick up some "disc Brake Quiet", it comes in a pink bottle, you coat the back side of each pad and its almost like a RTV coating that stops the pad from shifting and eliminates most Squeals...
