Semi-metallic, Pep Boys brake pads:

I did my own brake pad replacement and got the Pep Boys lifetime pads. Now the car (the 500SEL) groans for mercy from the rear wheels when I have passengers in the car and use the brakes at low speed, kind of embarassing.

Am I supposed to use organic pads or do the Pep Boys specials not measure up?
