    How did you take the pads out? Did you take the pins out of the caliper? Sounds like you don't have something back together correctly to me.

    the creeking sound happens when i press the brakes while not moving.
    the deeper i press the brake pedal the more u hear the creeking.
    i guess its happening when the piston presses on the back of the pad

    Did you use any lubrication on the caliper slides? Sounds like you need to lube the caliper slides with a little high temp brake lube like 'Silglide" or equivalent. Anywhere the pads slide against the brackets and the back of the pads should be given a spare amount of this lube to remove noises. Silglide (or equivalent) is available at finer and not so fine parts stores across America.

    well i used the lube that came with the brake pads but what i think caused this problem is painting the calipers.
    what do u think?
    i'll remove them and lubricate them again and see how it goes from there...
    thanks

    I agree that is probably as a result of painting the calipers-because you have to clean everything off before painting. It happened to me before on my last Camaro. For my latest Camaro I cleaned everything and then painted, after giving it plenty of drying time I lubed all the contact areas. I've never heard a sound out of them in the past 5+ years since.

    Cool-glad it worked.
    Lubrication is noise control on brakes, as well as preventing wear.
