As an update, switched out the pads over the weekend and put about 75 miles on the them - little to no dust. They have a minor squeak at the very end of the brake cycle which is normal until you break them in. According to my sales vendor, this is due to the contamination of the OEM brake dust with the compound of the new ones which will go away in two to four weeks, depending on the mileage that is accumulated. Happy so far.

I will try and take a pic of the front to back wheel comparison for anyone that is interested in the brake dust difference.
