So...I fianlly got unlazy, bought new rotors and pads (centric rotors and Hawk HPS+, respectively).

This solved not only the empty upside down metal trash can on gravel noise that my brakes were making, stopped the brake grinding, and stopped the horrible whining noise that we though was the rack/pinion going to hell.

How bad were the brakes? Well, one of the pads actually fell out from stress. The rear side of the front driver's side rotor was none existent, and it felt like my brakes mimicked the Grand Canyon. There is still rust all over my wheel (soaked it in WD-40 for something like an hour...still all over the wheel) and body from the brake dust caking on and rusting that I've been trying to get off for over a week.

Pictures are worth a thousand words...this thousand is "Oh shit" over and over and over.

As soon as I find my memory card I'll get you the picture of the rotor...
