Despite this manufacturing glitch, Stoptech produces top quality products. They make the pads a little "tight" to control noise and it's a strategy that works.
I think Stoptech did that on purpose because the pads eventually rattle since the plates get flattened and worn. Then the hard parkers start to bitch about it.
