Squeaking sound.

Hey guys. I'm trying to hunt down a squeak I've had on my 12 v6 ever since I got it. At first we thought it was my brake bads so I had a tech apparently scuff em up for me. That helped for about 3 days. the sound was very faint then. But it came back. Just recently I replaced the brakes completely in the front. We haven't touched the rotors yet. I'm not sure what else it could be. The sound does go away when I start braking. But the rest of the time it just squeaks constantly. Its also semi high pitched. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Is it front or back?, could be rotors or the caliper mount part could be bent or one of your axle shafts could be bent

It sounds like its coming from the front. I think only the drivers side. Most people that ride with me can't really hear it, but if I let them drive they tell me how loud it is.

If you can get it off of the ground you can spin the front tires and listen for anything resonating.

You may have pad hanging up and not disengaging the rotor fully. When you apply pressure, it goes away.

Did you put the "stop squeak" stuff on the pads when you installed them? It's usually installed between the pad and piston. If there are shims or a backing, between that and the pad. It can help cut down on that kind of stuff. (If that's what it is)

I have not done my cars brakes yet...so I cannot explain it with that level of detail. However, I have used the above on a handful of other vehicles.

I am gonna take a guess that it's the front lower control arms... there is a TSB on it "GRUNT/CREAK/CHIRP/SQUEAK NOISE FROM THE FRONT LOWER CONTROL ARM OVER BUMPS"

I actually did put it on a lift and spin the tire, but it didn't replicate the sound. The tech that put the new pads on did put something on them to hopefully prevent squeaking it just still does. He thinks the dust cover behind the rotor may be touching causing it but that doesn't seem to be touching.

I do hear a groan over speed bumps and I'm sure the control arm is what that noise is.

Would that apply to the 2010 and newer stangs? It only said up to 2010. I do appreciate the info though! Just getting tired of this sound haha.

Figured I'd say I found the problem. Turns out my axle is bent or the axle shaft. Whatever it is. I'm not really completely sure what to call it. But when the wheel rotates it wobbles and causes contact with the brake pad.

Sounds like money.

I used grease on every bushing and I still have this whine/groan/ rubbing noise when I turn. I figure the best thing to do is replace my front and upper and lower control arms. If that doesn't do it try the tie road and bushings.
