Peaty said:Have you pushed in the caliper piston all the way? (keep an eye on the brake fluid level when doing this, you can force it up and out of the MC. Nasty stuff brake fluid)
Just checking...but you are sure you got the right pads, correct?ZuMBLe said:Yep, used the caliper tool to push it all the way back. Right now I have no shims on the outside pads and the solid shim on the inside pad on both sides. My car is still on 4 jackstands so I'd like to correct any problems while everything is still apart. I used the red stuff on the pads. I'm hoping it will be fine like this. Maybe wear down some of the pads then put the shims in? Still a bit annoying. But it seems that some people have gotten the Bobcats on with all the shims?

The guy was complaining about the brake squeel. The mechaninc that worked on the car told the customer, "yea, that's how you know they are working".
