Best thing is to try different pads. Maybe talk to that T brake place that's a commercial sponsor of FordMods.com now for some adivce.

yep I put ferodos in the old lady's car - won't be using them again! Stupid amounts of dust and they feel greasy at anything less than 3/4 pedal...bloody horrible things!

yeh, i'm not sure what series but they are pretty soft, i'd reccomend NOONE get ferrodo if they can help it. i bought them because they were "dust free"... lol.

i'm thinkin of gettng DBA gold disc brakes, in the hopes that in combination with good pads i will get good consistent (non spongy) braking with a reduced amount of dust... :P
