i put like 800 miles on them now they really only squeak once in a while.
i dont know whether it the pads,rotors,or the both together but the car stops on a dime now.

I don't know that it really makes a difference, as it's there to let gas escape. I could maybe see why it could help a bit to face rearward, but not sure it makes much difference.

Here's my crossdrilled / slotted powerstop rotors, They have a directional slant, and are marked with "L" And "R" On each respective rotor.
