Never buy the cheap pads. they are more metallic and sometimes not always but sometimes will squeal even when new. buy the OE or step up in quality even if the cheap ones are OE so are the step ups. spend 10-20 more dollars. get longer brake life, less brake dust on wheels, and not risking noisy brakes. ask guy at parts counter he wont steer you wrong. he wants u to spend more money

My front brakes squeak, I replaced the pads but the squeak is still there. These have squeaked for a long time?

There is an ongoing problem with squeaking front brakes on dodge rams and charger rt.From 2000 up to present Ihave been told dodge used cheap pads and rotors on a lot of there cars and trucks.I own a 2008 charger rt with 40000 miles and changed brake pads and rotors twice and they still squeak.i herd only remedy is to buy upgraded pads and rotors but these are much more expensive then stock parts.For now i am putting up with squeak till i get the extra money to get rid of noise.the brakes wont fail they just squeak.(I know very annoying)for now i just turn up radio a little louder LoL.But until dodge admits there using cheap ???? parts complaining to dealer didnt help.Good luck. PS A friend of mine put on slotted rotors and expensive pads and yes the still squeak.So mabye it has somthing to do with calipers but again dodge wont admit this.

OK, this unfortunately is a comon problem and one that I try to remedy when I put new brakes onto my customers see the edges of the brake pads are sahrp, and they are "designed" to crumble away as the pad wears, but if you purchase hard-compound brakes, which last longer I might add, this material doesnt break away and you get squeaking.......

What needs to be done is "chamfering" of the pads...which means they need to be removed and the edges are sanded/grinded away so the sharp 90 degree angles are 45 degree angles...this is the best solution that I have found.....

have your ear brakes checked and or replaced. Possible worn pads. There is a worn indicator on the pad that scrapes the rotor when your brakes are worn. If they arent worn, have them inspected!!hopefully this helps!!

Brakes squeak

I have solved this problem on many occasions in my workshop.
Usually be squeaking is caused by vibration between pad backing plate and calipers.
The is a special paste available from auto parts suppliers to apply to the back of the brake pads (Only where they contact caliper piston and housing) Some OE manufacturers supply this with brake pads.
I have also used "Hi Temp Silicon Sealant" and this works just fine also.
All the best, MMP

I have a 2007 focus, and about 20,000 miles the rear drum brakes started squealing. My Ford mechanic said this is common and offered to fix it for about $200. Is there a recall or TSB from Ford Company...

I was once told that the squeeling comes form the edges of the brakle pads vibrating when you stop. To fix it, remove the drum and sand off the edges of the brake pad. If you want to get serious, taper the edges of the pads with a grinder. Some Brake pads and shoes come tapered right out of the box. Be conservative only remove a little bit of material.
