    Stop the Squeaking

    I replaced the front pads and rotors on my DD and now it wont stop squaling at half brake power. I realize that there is alot of new stuff here and that they have to wear in but this has been a couple of weeks, and about 3000km.
    It just wont go away. At full brake, it is fine, but when you are just slowing down, it squeals very loud.

    Any way I can stop this?

    You know what, the same thing is happening to me in my Dakota

    I just changed all the brakes front and rear, along with rotors and drums and its usually when the brakes are warm from driving a bit that they squeal when coming to a stop.

    I am wondering if maybe the rears aren't adjusted properly and thats whats causing the squeal

    Perhaps the old pads had shims and the new ones do not. I just use some high heat silicone on the ears and piston of the caliper where it contacts the pads. good enough to absorb the vibration and stop the squeal

    Did you use Anti Squeal on the new pads?
    What about the shims?

    no anti-squeal on the pads yet. As far as shims go. I didnt notice any. I took off the old pads and put on the new ones that looked the same (didnt look like they were missing any other parts

    Cheap brake parts? The squeal is likely from too high a metal content in the pads friction surface.

    not a safety problem, but still a problem. I drive from TO to Hamilton everyday on the QEW which is always stop and go, so there is alot of soft braking. And, NO I do not like the high pitch squeal or everybody else looking at the douche with the loud annoying brakes.

    i agree, if you take them apart you can even see the hard spots on the pads, and rotors too.

    I'd take them apart and use anti-squeal on the pads.

    When I bought my 1991 XJ, it had 'newer' pads on the front. It squealed when the brakes were warmed up and I came to a stop. I took them apart, put generous amounts of anti-squeal on them, (the blue stuff, not the red spray-on kind) and my problem went away.

    Until my calliper seized up a few months later... (Not that it's related!)

    If I was a Jeep, they'd have parted me out a LONG time ago.

    We have no problems here at CT with the Monroe pads... no squealing. We use lubricant (anti-seize) on all moving parts, and on the stainless backing plates that are bonded to the Monroe pads. $65 for most applications, lifetime warranty on 'em too IIRC
