just about to order a set from Jerry, and ship em to UK. Jerry mentioned that there is a process to stop the brakes making a noise. Anyone who has these pads, did you go thro this process, do you only do it once ? Also, anyone not do it experience brake noise ?

Hey Mike,
What is the process for the pads?

Also do you know of a slate quarry / mine in your area?

There a suggested break in process, anytime after a brake job.

There are varied ways to minimize noise, proper break in procedures are one way, combined with additional installation 'tips'. Here are the ones recommended from Jerry's site.

I have done steps 1-5 for years, but not necessarily with the specific products mentioned, AND always have done step # 6.

btw...regarding a quarry, I am about 5 miles from Avondale Pa, they have quite a few working quarries in that area. Are you looking for anything in particular ?

Lello,
10 to 12 tons of random slate to deck in my pool.
Thats like 10-12 pallets.
Want to get it wholesale, direct ship via semi truck.

Thanx.

Got a friend at a quarry?

I have two complete sets of porterfield pads. I followed the process on the SLK and have a squeak from the rear. On my ML I did nothing, I did not even use the non-squeak paste and they are as silent as can be.
