The squealing is usually not caused by the actual action of pads on rotor, its that the pads are shaking in their mounts. When you do a brake job, you can get some brake-glue that you put on the back of the shoe. Its basically a rubber layer that prevents the shoe from moving around when the brakes are applied, thus preventing the squeal.



It works great, and has no effect on braking performance.
