Hello Joel,As always, thanks for being there for the simple questions. I have done my homework researching past questions and I want to make sure I am clear.I am going forward with Pagid Orange pads for DE track days and will probably go back to the stock pads for street use assuming I am unhappy with the brake squeal mentioned by many different posts. I am not opposed to putting in the time to switch pads to prepare for DE days.The first question is - are squeal shims and back plates one and the same?I don't think I need the plates when installing the Pagid's for track use - correct?If I reuse the plates to replace the original stock pads what adhesive do you use?Any other gotcha's in this process?Thanks again from a rookie. You are an invaluable resource.
