Re: brakes squeek like crazy!!! (rich18t)

squeak or is it a "shhhh" sound?
If it's a squeak, you probably need to put the anti-squeal stuff on the back of the pads.
(yes...I got the same setup...since my fronts are still good)

Re: brakes squeek like crazy!!! (SoFlaJetta)

I have Mintex all the way around and have NO squeaking at all. However, my uncle has Mintex in the front only (he hasn't changed the rears yet) and his squeak like crazy. So, I don't know what it is
