My RS6 squealed like a stuck pig, WK1 SRT/8 squealed like a piglet after a short while. WK2... No squeal yet and stops better than both of them by far. Give me Stopping power first, no squeal second, dust a distant third.
Yep, that's what I'm saying, Stopping Power, Dust and Noise in that order.

That's cool, I'd just also want to interject another consideration, that is: cost. At $1K+ per application it's not going to make me change my mind, sorry for being a cheapskate.

$1K+ per application? I'm talking about a couple hundred $$$ on some new pads. No problem with the brakes, they are GREAT!!!!!

Basically my reason for my answer at the time. The after market wasn't/isn't here. Keep the OEM until something better comes to market. Just don't go put low dusting pads on that won't stop for $hit. You have a performance truck and need brakes to handle the weight and power of the truck.

Agreed, never meant to imply I was willing to sacrifice performance for low dust.
