Re: Brake Squeeal
fordel sorry "it tend to happen when everything is new", ex brake mech and am in the game in another area now.
Only did my AU last weekend, slotted rotors and Performax pads, no squeaks at all and there shouldn't be, done many many over the years.
Squeaks only occurs from shortcuts :
No machining of rotors (not brand new rotors) when putting on new pads.
Cheap no name pads
XR8 Revival I have to say great customer care from who ever you purchased from, no responesibility, whatever happened to going beyond your customer's needs ?
Not OE brand ! Half the aftermarket brands are made by the same manufacturer anyway, thats another storey.
Listen there's anti squeal goo to put on the back of the pads, 50/50 remedy, bite the bullet get the rotors machined if there is enough meat left and a good brand pad. Nothing more annoying than rattles and squeaky brakes.
