I just put me rotors and pads on the front of my 07. Everything was fine till I had my other wheels mounted up since then when you are going at least 30 mph and apply the brake you get a high pitched squeal pushing harder it goes away, hard spot in the pads maybe?

Also having issues with squealy back brakes.

I used cleaner and greased the contact points.

Haven't took the drums back off yet but I will eventually.

I used something other then brake grease when I did mine.

Everything was cleaned but I didn't grease the sliders I guess I'll have to dig back into them

After this, it'll be just automatic, something you do when you have the brakes tore down.

Make sure wheel not rubbing caliper if something is new there.

If you bought the cheap pads with no chamfer on ends, shame on you, the squeal.........
