Brakes

Recommended Posts

I just got a 93 sc400 and the brakes squeak really loud. So i got new ones and they squeak too. Wondering what breaks everyone has that dont squeak. I know a friend who went through 3 sets of breaks before he found some that dont squeak.

Brakes need adequate time to "break in" (ha ha ha)... but if they continue to squeal for too long, your rotors may be shot and/or warped. This is typically the problem for young and/or female drivers (I can say this fairly, as I am young and have replaced more female's than male's rotors), especially if they've previously owned an SUV/Truck.

Or your calliper isn't applying equal pressure...

Or you're hearing things again!

If the squeaking is non-stop, you might try adding oil (the overhead cams REALLY squeak when oil is low). But chances are, it's still your brakes.

Or you could do the highly illegal and highly unorthodox method of WD-40ing and breaking off wear-indicators. That works, too : )

I just recently changed my pads. (4 days ago) Went with OEM parts and it drives like a dream.

Maybe the original owner had put cheapy aftermarkets from PepBoys or something before selling. Got them for 50 some-odd-bucks (2 front) from www.irontoad.com. Really happy.

If I'm totally wrong with the pads scenerio, redsully's on the mark.
