View Full Version : HELP. rotors turned and new pads but squealing!

Ok, I had my front brake pads changed with PFC carbon metallic pads and the rear ones are regular. I noticed that sometimes when I apply the brake to come to a stop, there is a high pitched squealing noise. It only seems to happen when i've been driving for awhile. I cant tell if its coming from the front or rear. Its VERY annoying. I had all 4 rotors turned and the same problem is still there. What is wrong with my brakes????

Did your new pads have the shims on the back side?

I'm not sure if this will help, but you may need to grease the pins that the calipers slide on.

Thnaks for the feedback. The shims are on there and the pins are brand new.

Yeah, it probably needs greased where the pad meets the caliper. Clean it real good with brake cleaner as well.

My 1990 N/A bird squealed no matter what I did to the brakes. Then I checked the piston itself and it was scored. Got some new ones and it was quiet till the day I sold her, 2 years later.
