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.

brake pads from other manufacturers ( Ferrodo and bendix) will fit
modern master cylinders have a special finish in the cylinder so reconditioning and new rubbers are generally not advisable
the best fix is a new replacement master cylinder and they are available at any professional brake and clutch shop
