New Pads, New rotors, same traffic light tinnitus!

1 post in this topic

Posted · Report post

Hey all,
Thought id hit up anyone that has had similar issues with the Z non-brembo brakes squealing under light pressure.
My brakes were perfect up until about 12 months ago when discovered the fronts needed replacement. No big deal. Replaced them myself with some soft pads, used anti-seize grease, and they were good for about 1000ks. Anyway, they started squealing again at low pressure, I couldn't work it out so I took it into a mechanic. $700 later, new Bendix pads (harder than I had), new rotors, bedded them in, same old blasted squeal at low pressure and shockingly worse in wet weather. 
The mechanics were happy to take my money and not find a solution, lucky for them they don't risk tinnitus every time I pull up at a traffic light!

Any one had similar issues and worked out what it is?
Any ideas are much appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
