Brakes - how do ya Stop them squeeking??

About a month ago i got all my discs machined and put new brake pads on all round on me EF Falcon sedan. Ever since I put them on they started to sqeek and I imagined that is was normal for new brake pads, but after allot of heavy braking and wearing them in they are squeeking louder than ever and getting worse.

Is there anything I can do to the pads to stop them squeeking or do I just need to get a different type of pad?

I am not sure what pads are on there. My mechanic did it all for me and he is usually pretty good when it comes to quality of parts. Couldn't imagine they would be cheap pads but it might be that.

Mine squeek constantly when driving and only stop when I put my foot on the brake. It is a really annoying.

Re: Brakes - how do ya Stop them squeeking??

Yup. ill join in here...
Recently replaced my pads all around... I have dba slotted and crossdrilled rotors on the front, and dba standards on the rear. However lately i have squeeling whilst applying the brake.. starting to become increasingly annoying, and at times, embarrasing.
I have put on the anit-squeel stuff onto the pads/piston on the caliper, but this only works for a day or 2.

Im contemplating replacing my pads, even tho they are new.

Re: Brakes - how do ya Stop them squeeking??

its caused by to much heat in the rotors they are most likly at there minimum thickness or the pads are to hard. if the rotor are within size try bendix std pads not ultimates etc my guess is one or the other is glazed up and that is what makes the noise my recomendations are only made if you are using it for road travel not on the racetrack hope this helps greg venomXR6

venomxr6..... bendix std's arent available anymore coz they contain asbestos. ultimates are the way to go now. Anyhow, i have the same problem as bishman. I have a AU11 XR6 and it was from the country so i dunno if the pads are shit or what but i cant imagine the rotors would be undersize. I havent changed the pads as yet but i think that will be the next thing. They squeel something shockin when im driving but stop when i brake. its sooooo annoying!!

Re: Brakes - how do ya Stop them squeeking??

yes i know that they started to phase them out but ultimates are just too dusty and not as good as the name says OK and if all these rotors have just been machined how can you say that none of these are not near being undersize or of poor quality same with the pads. let me show you an example buy a ba xr6 after about 15000k you get brake shutter bad take it back a few machings like 2 now the rotors have .6 of a mil till they are they are throw away its fords no waste policy the rotors are made from the waste engine blocks etc and ba is not the only series the only cure is to fit say dba rotors and non genuine pads.had the same problem on the ef. ford should just realise the problem cheers greg
