Break Noise!!!

Hey guys!

My lude always had a screachig noise when I break useally more when soft breaking, I've taking in it to my local shop-servesed the breaks (pads are ok sill got more than 60% all the way around) the noise stops for couple of days and comes back again... The only other solution i guess is to change my pads unless you guys know of any other one.
What do you guys recomend for just standard break pads that wont have this issue?, tired of hearing it :(

Re: Break Noise!!!

when you changed the pads last time did you use the stop squeak that is usually provided with the new pads? what pads did you buy? if you bought the econo brand that would likely be another problem. they don't come pre-beveled which is only part of the problem. on top of that it's just cheaper materials. the material, as it gets worn away leaves tiny particles that will cause squeaking. often times the nicer, more expensive pads come with the edges pre-beveled and are of course contain ceramic and don't make hardly any noise.

Re: Break Noise!!!

check to see if your rotors are warped, if you keep changing pads without addressing the real problem, it'll only come back. Have your shop see if the rotors are warped, or if the car is jacked up you'd be able to tell by looking at the rotor while turning a wheel. I had both of my rear disc brakes and rotors done and it's pretty quite now.

You can also tell if the rotors are warped/need replacing simply by sliding your finger vertically along the rotor (from the hub towards the middle of then fender) usually if you have a lip, or your pads are wearing unevenly you can tell. Most often times this won't really be a cause of a squeaking noise though. You'll hear grinding before squeaking.

What he said ^

Most often times you're going to find that the cheap-o brands squeak after only a few thousand miles. Just deal with it until you need new pads. Or if it really irritates you go with ceramics. Also, the graphite grease goes on the back of the pad, and you can put a tiny bit on the piston caliper. Most places who have decent employees will do it, but your best just doing your own brakes, and ensuring it gets done yourself. Brakes and oil changes are a cake walk and you should def learn to do it yourself. Its a total of 2 bolts each once the wheel is off.

Re: Break Noise!!!

Couldn't he take the "breaks" off and add the stop squeak?

it would be wise to clean off the rotor, pads, and their contact points on the bracket before adding it. it would no doubt help.. however if they are just crappy brakes, it will just come back.

Yes I belive that they are crappy breaks and that is why the noise came back, also changed my spurk plugs last weekend and they were a very crappy brand that i never heard of, pretty much toasted plugs, if they cheaped out on that I can just imagine what break pads they installed......

Re: Break Noise!!!

oh i'm sure. spark plugs aren't cheap enough already. some people have to be really cheap and.. i'm just gonna stop myself there, facepalm myself, sigh, and shake my head in a disgusted fashion. a DECENT set of pads should be around 100 bucks. iirc that's about what i spent on my last full set (front and back)

Re: Break Noise!!!

What do you guys think of AutoZone's Gold Cermaic Pads with the lifetime warranty? They freaking looked awsome and are about $50 a set. Any comment on the performance, material, quality?

Re: Break Noise!!!

anything with ceramic is going to be a lot quieter and perform then your average poor mans metallic pads.

Re: Break Noise!!!

I was reading somewhere that the heat put off by the ceramic could distort your oem rotors.

Re: Break Noise!!!

yeah if you drive like a raving lunatic and speed to ever stop light and wait till the last second to slam on the brakes. of course. yes, since ceramic isn't a good conductor of heat, the heat is kept in the rotors.. however it's minimal. but yeah, if you don't drive like a raving lunatic you'll be fine. i've been running ceramics since my first pad change... i got nearly 100k miles now. it has the original rotors... never been turned either. zero to minimal warpage.. and my minimal i mean, i don't feel any shaking while hitting the brakes till i'm over 100mph. and i don't reach that speed to often. and so you understand how minimal the heat transfer is, i've done a few auto-x events in this car... still nothing. and if there is one type of race that tests your car's brakes to the limits, it's auto-x
