Thats a good thing normally , it means the pads are doing there job properly and you are getting the braking power required , don't give up braking power for longevity!!

Squeaking Brakes


What kind of brake pads are you using and did you use brake grease on the pad's baking plate. Lubriplate (blue squeeze tube) makes it, et al. Ceramic pads last longer, but have a tendency to squeal a bit more than OEM or HD (sport) pads. Akibono are best ceramic pads on the market, with ATE, Jurid, Textar, and Galfer about equal in performance pads. Ultra high performance pads are made by Brembo, Galfer (Spain), AP (UK) used by GM, and EPC.

Why is there Soot on front alloys


Approximately 3/4 of your car's braking ability comes from the front brakes, therefore that's why there's more brake dust on the front than you do the rear. That dust you see is the brake pad material coming off.
If you don't want as much dust, you can have your brake installer install Ceramic Brake Pads, such as Akebono Ceramic Brake Pads.
They are a high quality pad, that lasts a long time, with hardly any dust.
Hope this helps!

Does this car require ceramic brake pads?


NO it does not require ceramic brakes. The ceramic brakes are just a different option to the type of brake pads available out on the market.
The ceramic brakes uses ceramic which helps keep the wheels cleaner. Ceramic brakes has less brake dust then conventional brake pads like the Semi metallic brake pads which leave more brake dust on the the wheels.
Note though that ceramic brake pads are harder and last longer with less brake fade then the conventional brake pads. The only thing about the ceramic is that they don't work as good as the conventional brake pads till the heat up during hard braking.
In short the difference between the two, ceramic last longer but you go through replacing your rotor every time you replace your brake pads and there is no brake fade but weak till they heat up.
Semi Metallic brake pads almost last as long, and leave more coating of brake dust on your wheels. Your rotor will last longer and great brakes and will have a slight brake fade when over heated from hard stopping from hight speeds.
Thank you for using fixya and be safe.

I just bought my 2004 buick lesabre and I already need new brake pads. I dont know whether I should get med grade pads or (high grade)ceramic pads. If I get the high grade would I special rotors?


You can use your stock rotors with ceramic pads. If you feel that the pads wore down too quickly then they may have been a less than optimal type. Keeping disc brakes clean is key to making them last longer. When there is brake dust and naturally occurring rust built up in the calipers and slides, then they don't release immediately or completely when you let off the brake pedal and they may actually drag your pads.

What is the best brake pads to use on a chevrolet 2004 silverado 2500hd 4wd


if your looking for a brand there are thousands out there. but from experience, buying a ceramic brake pad will last longer and cause less noise than a semi-metallic brake pad will but it will cost you a bit more. Also, ceramic pads are more rotor friendly

I am replacing the brake pads on my Kia 2007 Sedona; front and back is neeeded or just front? Took it to Kia dealer and mechanic showed me pads where very thin and needed replacement; all for $400! Heck...


If your rotors are good and fairly smooth, then a decent ceramic pad will work well. Just be aware that ceramic pads will require a slightly greater paddle pressure. They will last longer, dust up a bit less and will perform MUCH greater in stop and go traffic...

I suspect that 25 dollars per axle is a typical cost for good quality disc brake pads.

My car is making a high pitched noise from the front right tyre when I go over 45mph, just bought the this used car last week, is a daewoo lanoo 2000? ANy help is appreciated


This high-pitched noise sounds to me like the right-front brake pads. They are most likely semi-metallic brake pads. You may want to remove the tyre and inspect the pads first for excessive wear. If they appear worn, of course, replace them. If they are not too worn, you may want to apply some disc brake anti-squeal spray to the backing plate of the outer brake pad. Another thing to consider, is to switch the pads out with ceramic pads. They last longer, are quiet, and don't create as much brake dust, especially if you have mag wheels that you're trying to keep clean.

Of course, without hearing the noise for myself, I can't EXACTLY determine the nature of it, but this is the first place I would look. Please let me know if you need any further assistance! :) -Jason
