      I completely agree! Furthermore if you do reuse the rotor they should be turned to remove any groves to insure a smooth mating surface for the new pads. How much does this service cost? $25-$30? ...

      I use a C-Clamp that I bought back in high school for this purpose although some of these other tools now look more convenient. Do you apply anything to the back of pads to prevent noise/squealing?
