did you lube the slides and pins when you put the new pads on? did the pads come with new slides? did you put them on? when you put the slides on did you clean the mount with a wire brush to get rid of any debris on the mount area? if the kit didnt not come with slide are there slides already in place where you put the pads?

lubed everything and i think its coming from the rear cause as soon as i put new rear pads in it started and is progressively getting worst. the slides/ guides were already there and i did lube them throughly when i installed them

What kind of pads did you buy? The cheap metallic pads will almost always squeal. It could also be the rotor. If the metal on the rotor is damaged or worn, it will cause noise when the brake pads contact it. The rotor may need to be shaved down so it is smooth.

the cheap metallic ones. but they shouldnt squeek when im not braking. its stops as soon as i touch the pedal i think im gonna machine my rotors see if that helps at all they maybe just be glazed being that they are original.

still havent figured this out!!! seems to get worst when turning, all calipers are releasing and front rotors are freshly turned! seems like it has to be the cheap pads but im not sure.
