    Hi,


    On my LR3 I upgraded to the EBC dimpled and slotted rotors along with EBC green stuff pads. Since then each wheel is making a noise which sounds almost like chirping crickets or locusts if that makes sense. I can only hear it with the windows down and it goes away when the brakes are applied. They've been on for a couple thousand miles with no change to the noise. I double checked my job and all seem good.

    Maybe a characteristic of these particular brakes? It's not a huge bother but just thought I'd ask.

    Are they the Sport or Ultimax rotors? The Sport rotors have very wide slots, which can make a lot of noise (sounds like an bi-plane).

    Crap. I just got mine in the mail yesterday. Don't want to sound like locusts or crickets
