Mustang sounds like Scool Bus.

Upon application of the brake pedal, I get a loud squeal, much like that of a school bus. The car stops fine, and very fast I might add!

Set-up
I've got the GT Rotors with Hawk HPS pads.

So what can I do to fix this minor nuisance?

How many miles on the pads? Were they properly bedded in when they were put on? You may have some glazing of the pads and that can be fixed by removing the pads and using some sand paper on the face, then bed them in once again.

Use grease on all metal to metal contact areas. Or could be cause they are low. There is a metal indicator that will squeel when its time to replace the pads.

I'll try greasing them, that's what I had planned on doing. I doubt they are worn at 10,000 miles. I'll look at them tomorrow.

Ahh that may explain. They only have about 10,000 miles on them. How, and where should I bed them? I followed box directions.

Re: Mustang sounds like Scool Bus.

If you followed the Hawk directions then they should be properly bedded in. So if it isn't fixed using the anti-squeal measures above, then I would think that you have glazed the pads. Since you will have to take it apart anyway to put anti-squeal on the backs of the pads might as well try a light sanding on the face of the pad and re-bed them.
