Ok, I know there have been numerous threads about squaling brakes, but none of them really had the same issue as me. I replaced my stock front pads at around 70k miles. They still had quite a bit of meat but I figured I'd replace them anyway. I had the rotors resurfaced and I installed Hawk HPS pads. A few thousand miles or so ago (about 8k on the hawks) I started to hear a squeal. It was hard to tell if it was coming from the front or the rear so being that the rears had about 78k on them, I decided to take a look at them. They still had some life left in them but I had a summit gift certificate I had to use so I bought HPSs for the rear too. I replaced them and no surprise, the noise continued. It has recently become louder and it is now very clear that it is coming from the front. It seems to only happen at low speeds when I gradually apply the brakes, like when I'm going through a parking lot or pulling into my garage. It starts to make noise when I first step on the pedal and then once I apply more pressure it quiets down. It also makes noise when I slowly back off on the pedal and began to roll again. Basically it seems like it only makes the noise when the pads are making very light contact with the rotors. I know the hawks are noiser than the stock pads and they did make a little noise for the first 8k and I didn't mind it but this is to the point where I really don't think it is normal. I pulled up to the drive-thru at the bank this morning and the teller cringed!
