Brake Squeal Issues

Recommended Posts



Yes, but pad material choice, rotor finish, hardware condition, caliper slide service and break in have a lot to do with it. B)

30% of my brake work is redoing cheap pad slaps.

Yes I have had several different vehicles with several different brands of brake pads that make noise. I am quickly finding that it matters the model of the car as to which ones make noise.

I find that BG stop squeal works really good. Its a liquid that soaks on the surface of the pad for about five minutes before installation. I even use it on the cheap pads for customers that want a quick slap and go. works great

Without mentioning part companies, has anyone been having issues with brake squeal and noise lately with brake pad replacements.

Because we live in the hills, we use only really good pads. We haven't had any problems since switching a few years ago. Not sure I can mention the manufacturer that we use here or not.

We explain to customers that all brake pads are not created equally and let them know the difference and most the time they pick the good service. If you tell the customer right off the bat a price on a good service theyll go to a 99.99 brake job place and get the cheap pads and then keep going back and getting upsold till noise is gone instead of taken them to a shop that's looking out for the customers best intrest. So I use the the best pads and service the rotors and calipers and no problems. But if they do choose the cheap pads their ready for noise. The bg brake pad treatment does help on cheap pads tho.

Frog is correct. Using a decent pad, resurfacing all rotors, making sure the hardware is all there and working properly, making sure calipers slides are free, and educating the customer about break in all go towards a noise free brake job. However, you still occasionally get a problem vehicle but i suspect the issue lies more with the style of the driver than with the brake job.
