i just install 4 piston wilwood brakes on my 01 rs
with 2 piece dba rotors, the kit was used, i purchased this kit from someone at impreza.net. it came with everything, lines, brackets, pads, and pins, everything to install it.
so i did
now when i drive and when i am coming to a stop, doing about 5-20 mph i guess, there is loud *** squeeking noise, and if i hit it harder, you can here the slotted rotors, but when i am slowing down from like 60 to 30 its fine there is no nosie.
the brakes feels great, i bleeded the brakes, everything is tight is there suppose to be that gel on the back of the brake pads like how you would applied the gel to the back of the brake pads on the stock calipers ,
what can it be, can it be b/c it hasn't been use for a long time, i sprayed brake cleaners on it, what can be making this loud squeeking nosie, and i am pretty sure that the driver side is the only side that makes nosie i think, is there anything i can pick up from a local parts store, to fix this , please help, don't feel like drive like this, want it to fix, and fast , any ideas?
Are the pads in the same caliper/orientation that they were on his car? If so, try rebedding them. Find a place where you can do 10 successive 65-5 mph stops (don't come to a complete stop). Properly bedding your pads means seeing smoke coming from both sides of the car. Before you do that, try putting some anti-squeal on the back of each pad. Also, what compound are you using? Aggressive brakes will make more noise than normal street pads.
