Why is it important to remove the 4 pins on the forward calipers? I changed my pads several times because the Hawk ceramic pads squealed big time everytime I came to a halt. I therefore had to go back to my old pads which I later returned the ceramics for HPS pads. So I had my pads in and out several times and never had to remove those pins. I just removed the caliper bolts and slid out the pads and put in the new ones. Has anyone else had the squealing problems with the Hawk ceramics? I was told that I had glazed them but they only squealed after driving 10-15 miles not initially. I embedded them as I should but I guess I didn't clean the old pad material off which was never posted anywhere. I'll have to see how these HPS pads will work out.
