Not sure about the specific issue(s) with the squeaky brake issue on these, but just a couple opinions on brakes in general:

- I had the original set of rotors from my '02 turned after ~60k (they had a pretty good warp in them), and continued to run them for SEVERAL track days (I mean ... A LOT of track days) and aside from developing the typical "spider cracking" (faint, surface cracking) they held up for a long time afterwards.

- any "performance" pad compound will squeak under typical street use. I've had good luck running ceramic pads for street use ... they do "work" on the track, but just don't have the same level of bite as typical pads, esp. track compounds. So unless you plan on tracking your car? (assuming most people are concerned about street driving) then I'd suggest trying a ceramic pad compound ......... I highly, highly doubt that the problem is with the rotors!?!?!
