Squeakin Brakes!!

Can anybody help me with my annoying brakes. I have a 96 Bronco and my damn breaks wont stop squealing. Ive had the rotors turned at midas and new pads put on, and 3 days later the squeak came back. I tried the anti-squeak stuff that you put on the back of the pads but that didnt work. The just recently I bought new raybestos brute-stop pads from pep boys and tried them, but the are making an even louder squeal. Does anyone think midas could of mess up my rotors while turning them, I am about ready to put out anothe 150 to get new rotors, its getting really annoying. ANy help appreciated.

Try sanding the pads to get rid of the glaze. If your brakes get really hot they will glaze really quick. Normal driving will wear off the glaze with time but the brakes can't get too hot in the process. I was told by my 4x4 shop to only put on autozones premium pads, they have the best materials that won't tear up the disks.

1) The newer pads are semi-metalic, so getting the squeak out of your last 5 feet of stop is going to be hard.
A)Try light sanding on the rotors and pads should help a bunch, however most shops do that when they do the brakes.
B)Go get some anti-squeak lube at the parts store, works real well.
C)And if that doesn't help, get the highend ceramic pads. Pricey, however really worth it. I ended up doing all the above and the ceramic pads fixed my problem!

Or....do like I did when I had my old Toy4x4 and spray water on the disc ever couple of days and that gets the drake dust off....end result no squeak for a few days.
