replacing oem pads with akebono ceramic due to dusting problems. OEM pads have an inner and outer shim on each pad, the Akebono has what they call a noise insulator attached permanently to the pad. Do I still use the Shims I remove from the OEM pads on the replacement pads or just use the attached noise insulator without installing the shims?
