Gx's do not do well with aftermarket brake pads. they always end up in the dealership shop with some noise,pulsation or vibration problem and i see many people paying twice for brakes. i know brake jobs are expensive at the dealer but its really the only way to go. oem parts and an experienced tech are the best way to go.

SOURCE: Brake Pad Sensor

If the brake lining indicator light illuminated prior to brake pad replacement, the wear sensor should be replaced. You have to get down to the point where you remove the brake pads then carefully pry the wear sensor from the brake pad. It is not difficult. There is only one sensor in the front and one in the rear. The front one is approximately $20. (Checkout Enter your VIN and/or other vehicle info to obtain the part number and cost.)

SOURCE: need rear brake pad and rotor replacement

Just the basics, Brake pads range from $25-65 depending on what kind of quality your looking for. If the brakes are grinding, you will need 2 rotors ranging from about $50-70 per wheel. On top of that, after you pull the wheels you will have to determine if the calipers are frozen or hanging up. Calipers on that truck run about $75 apiece. You didn't specify if it had ABS brakes so I based everything on standart disc brakes. Hope this answers your question. Best of luck.

SOURCE: Brakes squeeking

Try spraying the calipers and pads with brake clean usually the squek is from brake dust build up. The caliper slides are the only places where high temp. synthetic caliper grease is used try that as well.

97 Chevy S10 rear end squeek that goes away when brakes are applied

If you have rear disc brakes, one of the rotors could be warped and causing the pads to move in the caliper.
You should be able to remove one wheel at a time, lock down the rotor with the lug nuts, and put the trans in low gear or reverse to listen for the noise.

The brakes squeek really badly?

Front or rear? Have they been replaced recently? Just a shot in the dark with what little information you've provided. If they haven't been serviced recently...The front pads are equipped with a small metal tab (sensor) as the pads become worn, the sensor comes into contact with the front rotor indicating they need replacing. If they have been serviced, the pads may be moving around slightly. There is a product called stop sequel that is applied to the back of the pads to stop this. If it's the rear shoes, then they probably need replacing as the rivets may be contacting the drums. Or, a spring or clip may have dislodged and should be looked at. I hope I've helped. If so please rate my assistance and leave a comment to assist others in a similar situation. Thank you and have a Happy Holiday.

Squicking bracks

Sometimes brake dust or dirt builds up and causes this, other times the rotors become overheated and polished surfaces rubbing together make harmonic noise (squeeling). Another problem could be the higher metal content in the pads (if you just replaced with metallic pads) and this is normal squeeking. But if you think the problem is recent and no brake work is suspect, you'll need to raise the front and remove the two tires and inspect. Even if your brake sensor light is not on, check the thickness of the pads by looking through the back of the brake caliper. You should see at least 1/4' pad. If no pad is present you've found the problem, and don't drive any further until you've replaced the pads. If you have pad life, take an emery cloth or 220 higher sand paper and go around the rotor surfaces lightly enough to remove any shine. Spray liberally with brake cleaner the rotors and brake calipers and pads. Reassamble and do the rear brakes. Finally, if that doesn't work, you should check the back of the pad to see if any anti-vibration grease or paste is present. This acts as a dampner to the vibration and holds the pad slightly tighter in the brake caliper.

My 2003 Lincoln had new brakes and rotors 6 months ago - now, i notice a squeek when I apply the brakes - also, on snow when lightly braking, my brake pedal pushes itself against my foot in an up and down...

if you had brakes and rotors 6 months ago,did you do just front or just rear?
if you did front and squeal is in front,the new pads got hot and it glazed them,but the rotors are you pulsating pedal,are you sure they did rotors and pads?
there is no way this should be happening in 6 months.

Squeekey brake pads. Recently replaced

dear friend-what im about to tell you now will not be approved by my fellow experts but believe me it works.remove the disc pads and get your hands on some copper compound.put a thin layer of compound on the surface of the pad rub it in and then wipe light with a cloth,you can also put some of the compound on the back of the pad between the pad and the place,re-assemble and your squeek should be gone.

2006 chevy silverado 1500 front brakes are squeeking

on disc brakes there is a metal marker on them that when the pads get low on material it will make a squeeling noise to let you know its time to change the pads.. so I would say you are in need of front pads also even though they look good you are getting low.. this marker is designed to let you know its time before you get to metal to metal .. jerry
