    rotor/pad issues

    has anyone ever had any problems with slotted and drilled rotors being loud when stopping?
    i installed some rotors and pads on my girlfriends ws6 and they seem to be a pain in the ass, they make loud noises when applied almost like a whining noise, these rotors i got off ebay brand new(dont remember the brand), when you have the wheel in the air and spin it you can kinda hear it to. these were a damn tight fit to install also

    sometimes when you get your wheel bearings to tight or to loose they will whine.

    drilled and slotted rotors are directional. they should only go on one way. also, was it hard to press the pistons back in the caliper? the calipers might be slightly frozen, causing drag.

    My '95 is having the same problem with ws6store.com drilled/slotted rotors + hawk pads front and back. 1000 miles since change they still squeak like hell on the slowdown at any speed.

    Anyone have any ideas?
