I will, as soon as i get it. Unfortunily i have to wait a couple of weeks as over her in europe offroad shops dont stock Jeep goodies especially not for GC as they are mostly driven by bankers wifes(Bummer)but hay thats life.
Did you apply anti-squeal to the backs of the pads before installing?

No i dident. I think its got somthing to do with the pushrod not leting the pad release all the way back?
Yes, they're designed to always have a slight amount of drag. That's why the anti-squeal. If you don't have any, try removing the pads and applying a light coat of high temperature grease to the backs of the braks pads before reinstalling.
