Brake Pads

What is the consensus on getting rid of brake noise? I swapped out the OEM for Carbotech AX-6's. After bedding them in, I'm getting a bit of chatter when coming to a stop. I've got some brake grease, but the old ones were glued in place with some adhesive.

Strange thing about the rear pads though, each of them had a "pin" on the back of the pad that protruded out. The OEM's did not and I could not install like that, so I filed them down. Anyone know what those were for?

i haven't touched the brakes on the Roadster, but on my Audi S4, i use this Permatex spray

looks similar to the Bendix mentioned above
