My wife can be backing out of the garage and I can hear the creak from 100' away. It is seriously annoying. I' seen other posts that say this is normal. This is no way normal. The car never did this when it was new. There has just got to be a simple answer to this. I wonder what the difference is between the factory pads and my ceramic pads are. I would really hate to buy Mopar pads after shelling out $180 for new ceramic pads. My gut tells me that if I do that it won't make any difference. Maybe I should try bleeding the brakes again. It did shut up for 2 days after the install/bleeding. Good Grief.
Well, ceramic pads are actually supposed to be the quietest material, so I think you're good there.
Did you use a good brake caliper grease on the sliding surfaces, and especially on the backs of the pads, where they come into contact with the calipers?
I used to have a large jar of the green stuff, I think from Permatex, but it started turning really dark, so on my last brake job (my dad's minivan) I used a tube of newer orange "ceramic" grease, and the brakes started squeaking a couple weeks after I did the job. I just got a jar of CRC caliper grease (black) and I'm going to re-grease everything. I think the key is to use a sticky grease. The green stuff I used to use, got sticky after a while. The orange "ceramic" stuff seems kinda thin.
But don't use a sticky grease in the side pin boots. I used the green stuff in there once, and it kinda seized everything up. I use silicone based Sil-Glyde in the boots now.
