I just had a local shop do my rear brakes (I did the fronts) and right after they did them they started rattling. When I took it back they said that the clips were gone from BOTH sides. They said that they usually see these break but since mine didn't they just put it back together and sent me on my way. Since I had to come back 3 times and pay dealer price for the hardware kit, I think it's fair not to do business with this shop anymore. Anyone think that's being too extreme? The back brakes also squeek more than I'm used to (I put anti-squeel compound on the backs of the front pads) They said: "All our pads have anti-squeek shims on the backs of the pads and that it would take several hundred miles to "break-in" Is this true? Thanks, -meld
