Thanks all. did the job after swapping out those junk lug nuts. The new pads and rotors are quiet so far, and have good breaking power even without bedding so would recommend the akeboro proact pads and Wagner e-coated rotors (I also only washed these with soap and water before install).

The install was pretty simple once the lugnuts came off. No suprises anywhere, the only thing is make sure to have a breaker bar to remove the bolts(18mm) holding on the caliper braket to get the rotors off, the bolts are thread locked on so i had to use a 25 in breaker bar to get them off. Everything else was simple, took about 40-50 min a side taking my time in a parking lot.
