Please tell me there is a remedy

Hey guys, changed all 4 brakes about 4 months ago because they were squeaking so figured they needed to be replaced. Well, not the case. They looked barely halfway worn down if even that. But i changed them anyway. Now my brakes are squeaking again and it drives me freaking nuts. So if there's any sort of concoction I can spray on them or something, please let me know.

My guess is that your rotors are glazed or you replaced the brakes with cheap pads . I would only recommend having rotors cut once in there lifetime but it's worth a shot .

Ceramic pads don't squeak; good pads for street driving. If you track the car, or tow (doubtful), then semi-metallic or metallic pads are the choice, but they squeak.

Applying anti-squeak on the pad backing helps quite a lot; some pads come with a backing already applied.

What brand of pads did you install?

Hawk Performance. I'm pretty sure I did ceramic too. And I've got the Brembos on the front.

Did you turn the rotors when you put the new pads on???
Never....never.....put new pads on worn rotor....and never take used pads and put them on new rotors.
I had Brembo's and GT500 rears and used the stock Boss 302 pads in front on my Brembo's and the GT500 pads on the rear 13.8 rotors....never had an issue.
I can't see a need for drilled/slotted rotors....and if you get them hot enough they have been known to crack....slotted maybe....drilled no....IMHO

They will squeak in the mornings or when the rotors are wet, but it will go away once they get hot. That's what the oem pads do, once I had changed mine that went away.

Yes , they squeak easy in humid area, they will get a light glaze of
rust in just hours= squeak. I just lightly hold down the brake while accelerating lightly for a few seconds and it goes away.
Its very humid in Dallas.

Although the average humidity in my area is around 77% I've never had my Brembo's squeak...morning/noon/night. If I let the Mustangs sit for over a week the rust is barely visible....even without holding the brake pedal down it should be gone in one of two stops.

Granted these are Brembo's with 4 piston front.....single piston rear.
If your rotors don't look like this it's time to have them turned and get new pads.
These pictures were taken at about 10k miles.

Every pair I've had of Ceramic brakes have squeaked on me constantly...

The first time I switched to duralast regulars that are semi metallic.. I haven't had one squeak at all!

If your ceramic brakes sqaueaked then you have some other issues....I've had two sets on my ole 14 TrakPak and no squeak....did I forget to say they were GT500 pads and rotors....
