New Pads, New rotors, same traffic light tinnitus!

2 posts 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,

Tim

So I wanted to update this post even though it never went anywhere. Might help anyone else with similar issues.
Spoke with a Bendix rep and he sent me some lubricant to go between the pad and the calipre. Called Ceramasil.
This stuff is great, it hasn't completely stopped the noise but reduced it by 70%. Also giving the calipers a solid clean out of dust and what not probably didn't hurt. Repco sell a tube with more than you'll probably ever need. Link below.

Still though, brakes aren't silent enough. They used to make no noise. After talking to a couple people they recommended my putting some shims in between the caliper and pad. No idea why the brake pads didn't come with this or the Mechanics who did they job didn't suggest it. Anyhow, ive ordered in some from ConceptZ and when they arrive ill drop them in and report back. Link to the shims are below also.
