confused Brake Squeel

Hi all, i'm looking for suggestions... i have a 98 FBT, since changing my original rotors to DBA Gold 329mm, i have had terrible brake squeel,it appears to be coming from the right side only 99% of the time, so far this is what i've had done to remedy the squeel:slides and pins checked, rotors machined, changed pads from PBR to Lucas Walkinshaw, smoothed off leading edges on pads, applied countless ltrs of sticky shit behind pads (even though i have anti rattle clips & the pads lock into the calipers) tried braking late and hard, soft and early (like granny). The blokes at my local ABS brakes service are out of ideas... so if anyone has had the same problem or has any ideas please let me know. It's getting to the stage where i'll put city council bus stickers on it!

My suggestion, slip down to your local BURSON AUTO PARTS store and buy some BOSCH QIK STOP Brake pads for about $35 - Problem solved!
These pads are made buy Bosch in Europe and i'm a huge wrap for them after huge squeeling issues with my BA. Slipped them in after advice from a mate and squeel is gone!

Try the quickstops , if that fails ask about the antisqueel pads , its a thin pad the goes behind the brake pad and generally quitens them right down .
My EL sprint made shocking noise under brakes from a fast pass so we threw in some $30.oo greens and filed the lead edge... the disk glaze wiped off and now its quite.
good luck
