I had Mintex 1144 pads fitted on my Esprit for years (stock  brakes, though) without squeaking.

 

What have you done to reduce the squeaking? Proper bedding?

 

 

You should always apply a coat of high-temp brake grease top the back of new pads, or a product like this:

CRC 05016 Disc Brake Quiet (Available from Amazon)
