Or should I say "insanER"? Anyway, these pads are driving me crazy. It sounds like a wild animal that just received a mortal wound and it's about to die. Pedestrian 6 lanes away jump in the air when I stop at a red light. Is as bad as it can get.
It started when I changed the pads some months ago... I kept saying to myself, it's because they are new, once they wear out they'll be normal. But that never happened. It's been a few months with 60 miles round trips to the office and it's sounding louder every day.
I tried one of those "paints" that you spray on teh back of the pad. It reduced the sound by half, for a week or 2. Then it came right back.
From the failed Anti-Skweeky experiment, it seems clear that the sound is being generated between the pad and the caliper. There's no shim, it rusted away years ago...
Internet searches about the topic have left me more confused. IMHO I think I should just get a different brand of pad and try them out. After all, the ones I got were the cheapest of the cheapest, Valuecraft, at 12.99 the set.
Any Pad recommendations?
