Question about 1998 Volvo S70
The front brakes squeak when stopping i just had them done 3 months ago
Pads may be acting as phonograph needles and "playing back" the cut pattern on the rotors. To eliminate this tendency most dealerships now use a DA sander on the rotor faces while the rotors are still turning on the lathe, to break the pattern, making it non directional. (I've been doing this on all vehicles since the 70's)
If this was not done, they will make noise. Sometimes sound deadening inserts can be placed behind pads or a liquid made for this purpose can be applied to backings. But, the first method is generally the best. Other than that, if the pads are not binding or wearing prematurely, there should be no noise.
