ABS engaging abnormally

Let me know if you found the cause of the ABS engaging on dry pavement. I too, changed rotors and pads, in this case to aftermarket to reduce break dust and found that the brakes would begin to squeal and engage the ABS at slow speeds after periods of stop-n-go traffic. I lived with it for about 6 months until I decided to go back to MB OEM pads. I have 3 times the dust, but still experience the ABS problem, although its more random. It can even happen while driving slowly first thing in the morning. It is always accompanied by a very loud squeal. Also, the brakes don't squeal everytime, just randomly.

I wondered if it had something to do with the combination of the ABS sensors reacting to the vibration when the brakes squeal. I haven't returned to MB yet. Any thoughts ?
