Its 'Bout time they've been replaced

<span style="font-style: italic"><span style="font-weight: bold">The old discs have seen lots of miles,
While I'm at it I'm going to replace the brake pads,
Steering boots the front Wheel Bearings &amp; Tie rod end,
then into the shop for an Alignment!
I should be back on the road by Saturday</span></span> :driving:

works for a little while anyway.</span>

I hate to tell you this, but that much of any treatment or liquid does NOT belong on the pads or rotors and can only lead to issues down the road. Liquid or greasy anti-squeal products are usually anti-productive, except for the guy taking in the cash.

All it had to do was work for a week so I could get back and fourth...

I knew the rotors &amp; pads were shot so thats why I applied it.

Have your current rotors ever been cut? If not, there is certainly plenty of life left in them.

Yes they have been cut.
The last time I had them cut we took a mic. reading and the tech told me they could not be cut again.

Have you considered adding the anti squeel pads? The squeel may be coming from vibration between the pads and the calipers. New parts did not eliminate my squeel but adding the anti squeel pads did.

Thats what I have on there now, but they didnt seem to help.

My guess is the old rotors are slightly warped.

Brake squeek.

Can I ask what the stuff was you put on, and where did you put it on.

There are only a couple of brake pad surface conditioners that I can recommend. They soak into the pads quickly and often help with noise abatement. They are found via professional shops only. The suppliers visit dealers and repair facilites to sell it.

I would not recommend any other conditioners... Any sold over the counter, I wouldn't trust. My experience has been that they can be misapplied. When it comes to brakes you don't want that.

The vast majority of brake squeak can be cured by a little extra care in installation. The majority of squeal is vibration induced and you can see where the noise is being produced by looking for shiny spots on the back of the pads, the edges of the pads, retaining spring(if used. The component sets up a vibration, squeal is generated by the vibration. So apply a good, quality brake lube on the back of the pad where it applies to the caliper(that's the purpose of the anti squeal shims to absorb the vibration and dampen the noise) and the edges of the pads where they contact the caliper and the pin holes.

Now first brake pedal push after sitting often produces a higher pitched lighter squeak noise. That is because the pads/rotors haven't "bedded in" and dust is being trapped between the rotor and pad. Look at almost every pad set sold/installed today(for newer cars) and you will see that the edges, especially the leading edge) are cut with a slant. That allows the dust not to buildup.. So take the pads if they are not slanted on the edge and file the leading edge, and slightly on the top edge. Then a good bedding in when yo install the pads.

These steps done with true rotors and no more noise....

1st and foremost,
I only applied the (Disc brake quiet type 27) for 1 week because I knew I was going to replace the rotors and pads. I do not make it common practice to use that stuff!

I needed to drive the car back &amp; forth to work while my truck was in the shop for the week.

Now I have the new rotors, pads, bearings etc.. on the car and No Sqeeal at all!!!
