    New pads

    Just break down and get some new pads. It stinks to lay out some money if you can't do it yourself but it's worth it for peace of mind. That works almost every time.

    slightly warped rotors? It is an f-body after all. I assume you mean squeeking while driving, not just while braking

    no,.. actually its just squeaky as hell braking,.. i haven't heard any noise while driving, if i had,.. i would have gone off the wall by now,.. im ready to flip out on my husband, and i know its not his fault,.. but nothing annoys me more than someone with squeaky brakes,.. my first thought when i hear that on the road,.. "is get some brakes buddy"...
    guess the shoe is on the other foot,.. huh?..

    you probably need som elube on the back of the pads, it rubs on the caliper and makes hella noise sometimes. There is a product out called brake quiet? you spray it on the back of your pads(not the rotor side) and voila, no more squeeky. Also slightly warped rotors will have your caliper slipping back and forth squeeking, but that isn't likely the problem. Do the first one. . .

    i had the same problem, even with new rotors and pads. i have baer rotors now and ceramic pads and they finally dont squeak. just make sure to put enough of the lube stuff on all the metal parts and id replace the metal clips too.

    Hey,.. thanks for the info,.. everyone here is great with the responses,
    now my question to you is this,... how much of the paycheck did ya have to put out for your brakes, to stop that annoying squealing,..
