If you put the lifetime pads they are much harder and although you will get extended life the pads have a tendency to squeak try getting in a empty parking lot and put a little pressure on the brake pedal while backing up a few times it sometimes helps but is only temp, I prefer the non lifetime pads for this reason

How to unglaze glazed drum breaks


Rear Drums & shoes should be changed at the same time. The same goes for the front pads & rotors. Usually the drums & rotors are pre-cut but I ask at the counter if they need cutting because I have ended up with uncut squealers once or twice and found the drum needed to be re-cut due to minute warp-age. If the grinding is the same as before the brakes were changed then all th e brakes need changing not just the ones you thought needed it. Quiet pads & brakes have a beveled edge instead of an abrupt 90 degree angle. Ceramics tend not to squeak. As for un-glazing, in the old days we ran 60 grit sand paper along the wear surface until it was sufficiently scuffed to stop the squeal. It didn't work for very long & usually the squeal worked itself out with wear in a week or 2. good luck.

Break pedal squeaking


is the squeak inside the car? if so, then yes it's probably the pedal or linkage. If it's outside the car, then either the brakes were done poorly or the pads are defective. Assuming you had the front and rear brakes done. Could be the other brakes if only 1 axle was serviced.

Loud squeaky noise from front tires when turning and somtimes whe


Hi my name is Tom and I can help you.

Driving with your emergency brake on is only going to affect your rear brakes. There is a cable running from the emergency brake lever to your rear brakes.

You did not say how long you drove with the emergency brake on, but even a short distance and you forced the front brakes to do the work of stopping the car. This causes overuse which translates to heat. When the brakes over heat they "fade" and do not stop the car effectively.

In addition the heavy load of doing all the stopping causes the brakes not to realign. Therefore, when you go around corners the brakes pads will rub against the rotors.

I would suggest you get the brakes looked at or look at them yourself. I can help you do the job but I would need to talk to you directly. Let me know what I can do to help.

1994 Jimmy - Rear brakes are dominating after brake job


You need to bleed the whole system. Once this is done it should work better. Make sure you are not low on brake fluid. If the front brakes are disk brakes and the rear are drum breaks, the front really does most of the stopping, the back jjust keeps the car from spinning or swaying. But the main stopping power is in the front breaks. They need to be bled correctly, make sure brake fluid is up and make sure emergency break is not engaged. The emergency break uses a lever and cable to activate the rear brakes. The emergency breaks don't run off brake fluid...

please give good ratings, they are very important...

Squeek


Rear wheel bearings don't squeak, what could have happened is the brake shoe retaining clip hardware may have broke. Common to break due to corrosion if they have never been replaced. I always buy the brake shoe spring retaining kit every second break job since there only $15.00 at Auto Zone. 
The other thing to that the squeak could be coming from is the U joints at the drive shaft. The U joints may have gone dry of grease and needs to be replaced, You have two of them and the drive shaft needs to be removed to change the U joints so might as well have both of them changed. 
Good luck and hope this helps.

Front brakes make noise when applied after installing new pads.


it could be because they are dirty. also the noise could be the back brakes. if its a squeaking noise it could be that they are dirty or that they are cheep brake pads and for the first couple of weeks they squeak. also when you got your breaks changed did the break shop cut the rotors because that cleans them up and makes the rotors like new.

Screwed on break job?


Sound like most of your money went into his pocket. I use only the best brakes (most expensive pads on my stuff and my customers) usually purchased from a dealer. O. E. is the best (Original Equipment)
