Have you determined if it is front or rear making the noise?
You can spray Brake Quiet to the "back" of the pads to see if that helps....make sure you sand/clean the mating surface of the caliper that touches the back of the pad.....did you get new hardware with the pads? Clean the contact surfaces before installing the hardware?
With money tight I had to take a chance on the cheap price. I thought I would get at least 6 months out of them and get me back into warmer weather and longer days.
I think it is the front right that is squealing but not completely sure. as far as hardware, I replaced the hardware on the front ones. The right front was a problem getting the caliper off. one of the bolts/slide pins stripped while trying to get it loose. ended up having to torch it out. The torch melted one of the rubber boots hence the need for the front hardware kit.
I know I need to take them apart and try the anti-squeal stuff. I am just not sure what the best product to use is. there is the red stuff in the squeeze bottle, the spray on stuff, or high temp brake grease??
I did do some cleaning of the surfaces but not as much as I would have liked to. I was loosing daylight and needed to get the wheels back on.
