thank you for the feedback. I'll go ahead and install the old anti squeal plates this weekend. The pads already have a shim attached to them so I'm going to use one shim per pad from the old set. They work fine right now but the shims may prevent future noise. Like you said, its trivial, so I'm just going to install one per pad and I might be half right or half wrong, but I'll feel safer in the gray zone! Highly appreciate it! Thanks again.
