These pads were used in conjunction with new calipers and rotors. On the outer pads only, grinding of backing plate was required to clear rotor hub. Inner pads were not subjected to hub clearance so were not affected. This means that the innermost section of the backing plate where it is supposed to conform to and clear the curvature of the rotor hub, is in fact contacting the hub and must be ground down concentrically for clearance of the hub. Otherwise you will hear grinding when applying the brakes. The grinding noise sounds just like the metal upon metal grinding sound one hears when the brake pads have worn down to the point the pads are essentially worn away and only the backing plate is contacting and thus scoring the brake rotor.

                        For help with your project, I recommend getting a repair manual specifically for your vehicle. It should be able to help you with detailed instructions on how to do many things.
