  1. Professional says:

    They may need to flush the brake fluid. Either that or you requested the cheap brake pads which are metallic and tend to squeak.

  2. Fmbronco7 says:

    Use premium CERAMIC pads…….. replace the hardware and you should be ok……..if you installed semi-metallic brake pads you will get squeaking and alot of brake dust…

    lousey brake job

  4. Phillip S says:

    It sounds like your new brake pads are too hard. Semi-metallic pads tend to be harder than heavy duty pads. Resurfacing the rotors does not change the hardness of the pads. Suggest that you go back to standard stock pads to eliminate brake squeal. Did you change pads on all 4 wheels? Can you tell if it is only the front pads, or only the rear pads that squeal?
