I have ATE discs and ATE pads. All is well on my car.

Do you have the shims behind the pads? If not, that might help.

Also I assume the pads are completely coated on the backs right?

I always coat mine fully, and use the shims that are there.

I do not have any squeaking problem.

What pads are you using now?

Do your discs have a lip on the outer edge?

If so, I would think about replacing the rotors and pads with new ones. I had a lip on my old discs, and my pads were earing quickly, and I had a bit of a squeal. Changing both seemed to aleviate that.
