and they said I glazed them - told me to take them off and scuff them with sand paper. Anyone try this? Any other advice? My car sounds worse than a freakin city bus!

Start with a medium fine rasp or better yet a 3 1/2" belt sander with 80 grit belt for 1 sec. Then go to finer grit paper by hand. Don't get any oil or grease on 'em, not even from your hands. Chamfer the edges with a file. Use lacquer thinner or alcohol to remove any oil or grease on the pads.

when I used them aggressively. I ran the R4 racing compound which squeals like quire boys all the time, and kick up dust instantly.

You may also want to apply grease to certain caliper contact points. This actually diminishes some noise.
DO NOT APPLY GREASE ON THE PAD PORTION, AND DO NOT OVER GREASE ANY THING EITHER.

Usually light, steady, firm, applications for x miles. No long hard stops, track days, high heat conditions etc. As I understand it, the heat literally melts the pad compound into a glazed surface that has little friction and loud noise.
